Every Little Bit Helps…

In an effort to reduce waste, we will no longer be using single-use plastic spoons with Gojis. Instead, students will borrow a real spoon and return it to be washed and re-used the next week. So if you’re unpacking your child’s lunch bag some day and find one of these spoons, please send it back to school. We purposely drilled a hole in the end of the handle to make them easily identifiable. goji spoons #reducereuserecycle
