From the BMS Kitchen—Living Lightly on the Planet (Kelsey Smith)
All of the students at BMS learn about the BMS shared values of social responsibility, global citizenship and stewardship of the Earth. In keeping with these values, I am always looking to lower our carbon footprint in the kitchen. Below are a few ways we do this on a daily basis:
- Composting raw food waste
- Serving vegetarian menus twice a week
- Buying organic produce whenever possible
- Recycling all aluminum, plastic and carboard
- Taking plastic bags to Kroger for recycling
- Using washable trays, napkins, cups and silverware
How does your family live lightly on the planet? Let us know—perhaps BMS can do that, too!
Re-Enrollment Season Begins in January
Watch this newsletter and your email for information about meetings and due dates, all of which are very important.
Remember to Give
To BMS and to the many charities in Bloomington and elsewhere. Hoosier Hills Food Bank, in particular, is low on food.
Our goal at BMS is $50,000—with your help we can do it!
Your annual fund gifts support purchases of classroom materials, improvements to the play yards, professional development for faculty, and many of the other costs that tuition alone does not cover—we keep tuition as low as possible so that a Montessori education is as affordable as possible.
Thank you for your generosity.
