Phillips Environmental participated in several activities this year to help do our part in recycling, beautifying our campus, and creating awareness to help protect the environment. We did several recycling drives, including batteries, plastic bags, shoes and pet supplies. For more information on how you can help, email our environmental chair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On April 25, our PTA Environmental Chair organized 64 volunteers from our school families for a “Clean It Green It” morning to remove trash and help beautify our campus. This program was through the City of Frisco’s Environmental Services designated as a community clean-up day across the city. Pre-registered volunteers were presented with free limited edition T-shirts and a free lunch at IKEA after the clean-up was complete. The morning was a huge success and we appreciate all who gave their time to help take care of our campus!
