What to do:

Most of us have printers at home or work. Next time when you have an empty ink jet cartridge or laser toner, don’t throw it away.  Just put it in a Ziploc bag or the original cartridge box and bring it to Millhopper Montessori School!  We have a special recycle box in the front office!  We also accept all types of old cell phones too!

Benefits to MMS:

  • Will be paid up to $4.00 for each ink jet or laser toner with a print head and $0.50 for each cell phone
  • Prompt cash payment for our when a filled box is sent.
  • Free boxes… free shipping…. no cost!

Benefits to our community:

  • Reduce pollution. Cartridges do not decompose for 1,000 years.
  • Save energy. Empty ones can be re-manufactured and reused.
  • No buying, no selling, no burden to anyone.

Which cartridges?

  • Cartridges with a print head are qualified for payment. That includes most of
    • Hewlett Packard, Lexmark, Canon, Dell, Sharp, Epson and Brother
  • Cartridges without a print head do not qualify for payment
  • If you cannot tell the difference, bring it in anyways.

Everybody helps. We can make a difference.

You can also get empties from friends, neighbors, and small businesses.  On average, a person uses 2 cartridges a year.  The potential is huge.

Teacher Appreciation Gifts
Teacher Appreciation Gifts

adventure Each year the teachers and faculty of Millhopper Montessori School work incredibly hard to help our children learn and grow in a safe and healthy environment. During Teacher Appreciation Week we like to let them know how much we value their efforts. This year’s theme is designed to honor each individual’s interests and choices. As part of our Teacher Appreciation Week activities, the PTO Appreciation Committee is pleased to once again offer the opportunity to purchase for our teachers and staff a gift certificate to a local merchant of their choice. By many families contributing to the same gift, they are able to select something special. Participation is optional and we hope the program will alleviate some of the stress of this busy time of year. If you would like to participate, please place your order on this webpage or you may review the letter that was mailed to your home and indicate the dollar amount you wish to contribute next to the individual’s name. Please total all your contributions and return the form with cash or check (made out to MMS PTO) in an envelope to Crystal Sorrow by Friday, May 13, 2016. You may leave the envelopes at the front desk or hand them to Crystal directly. Gift certificates will be presented to each recipient during Teacher Appreciation Week with a card from the families who have contributed. Dollar amounts are not included on the card. Since the PTO is now a non-profit 501(c)(3), your donation may be tax deductible. Please speak to your tax advisor regarding tax deductions. If you are interested in assisting with planning Teacher Appreciation Week or if have any questions, please feel free to contact either of us at missyno@bellsouth.net or rimskoon@yahoo.com. Have a wonderful end of the school year! Missy Norman & Sheila Koon PTO Appreciation Committee
