Don’t throw it away – bring it to the recycle center outside Ms. Logel’s Art Room! (Don’t know where the Art Room is? Check the map on page 3 of your School Handbook.)
CARDBOARD: Small boxes that would fit in the recycle center drawers, inserts or interesting cardboard pieces, large boxes can be cut into square or rectangles. Trying to keep sizes under control this year due to space.
PLASTIC: CLEAN Bottle caps and lids in all sizes, small plastic containers-yogurt cups, applesauce/babyfood pouch tops, straws.
OTHER REQUESTS: Fabric, yarn, collections of any sort that could be made into art – old keys, wire, metal pieces, stickers, foils, decorative papers.
OLD MARKERS! We are also participating in the Crayola ColorCycle program to recycle old markers. We’ll take any type of marker – not just Crayola. Highlighters and even dry erase markers! Caps and all can go in the COLORCYCLE BOX outside the art room. They send us free shipping labels and recycle them.
The ColorCycle program has repurposed more than 70 tons of expended markers in the United States and Canada since 2013, and uses the most advanced plastic conversion technologies available today to make wax compounds for asphalt and roofing shingles as well as to generate electricity that can be used to heat homes, cook food, and power vehicles.
Back to School Supplies — Please contribute to the fund
We do the shopping so you don’t have to!
Rather than provide a list of items for you to purchase, our school and PTA work together to supply each classroom with all the notebooks, tissues, glue sticks, markers, pencils, etc. that your children will need throughout the school year. This saves you time, allows us to buy at a bulk/discount rate and ensures all classes are stocked the same.
We’re asking all our families to contribute $10 to $60 per child (as your budget allows) to cover the cost of these supplies. Envelopes will go home with the back-to-school packet soon for this purpose.
We’re a Uniform School — So what does that mean?
Beacon Hill International School has a mandatory school uniform policy. All students are expected to wear:
Solid color white, navy blue or hunter green tops (shirts, blouses, turtlenecks, jumpers, dresses, sweaters, sweatshirts)
BHIS logo t-shirts and sweatshirts are ok
T-shirts are ok — collared shirts are not required
Solid navy blue or khaki bottoms (skirts, skorts, shorts, pants, sweatpants)
No graphic designs or brand logos
Jeans are not uniform pants
Layers of clothing should conform to uniform standards
Wear shoes appropriate for PE and for playing outdoors at recess
Hats are not worn in class
Coats and jackets are not regulated by the policy, but please send outerwear appropriate for the weather. It rains frequently and students may get wet at recess.
“Free Dress” Days – The last Friday of each month is designated as a “free dress” day when students may wear non-uniform clothing.
Where to buy school clothes? Many local and online stores run back to school sales where you can find good deals. You don’t have to limit your search to the store’s school uniform shop to find solid colored clothing in our school colors.
The PTA has a fundraiser through the online clothing store Primary for uniform and other clothing purchases — visit through our unique link (below) and use Promo code BEACONHILL for 20% off your first order.
