Traffic Safety Reminders

With just a few weeks of school left, TESD urges all parents to exercise traffic safety around schools.  At this time of year, more students walk to and from schools.  In addition, with the bridge closure on Old Lancaster Road, we are anticipating new traffic patterns and additional delays in the mornings and afternoons around TEMS.  Please be reminded to:  Drive slowly and carefully in school parking lots and nearby roads, and discuss pedestrian safety with your children (look both ways, don't "walk and text," use crosswalks, etc).  Thank you!

What is 4Ocean?
4Ocean is a global movement actively removing trash from the ocean and coastlines while inspiring individuals to work together for cleaner oceans, one pound at a time.
The story begins when Alex and Andrew take a surf trip...
The Core Mission
Ocean Sustainability:
Healthy oceans are critical for life on this planet. They provide the food we eat, the oxygen we breathe and their continued health depends on us.
Creating Global Economies:
By giving ocean trash a value, we are changing the way people think about the problem and creating new economies in the process
Recycling Awareness:
Recycling is still an after-thought in many places around the world. So, part of our mission is to spread this awareness globally.
Earth Preservation:
We only have this one planet to live on. Preserving its beauty, function and form for the next generations is the ultimate end goal
If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please contact Heather Hill at 610-640-3805 or send her an e-mail at globularclusters@yahoo.com
For more on recycling visit TEMS Green Initiative link.
