Nichols has begun participating in Crayola's ColorCycle program devised to turn used markers into energy. Students and staff will be collecting used markers that are ready to be discarded. The markers will be sent to a facility where they will be converted into clean fuel. This fuel can be used to power vehicles, heat homes, cook meals and more!
Please help support our efforts by reminding students to deposit any used markers in the classroom or from home – even non-Crayola brands – into drop-off boxes located in the faculty lounge, main office and each of the kindergarten rooms.
Contact Julie Cola for more information.
