Want to participate in the Crayola Color Cycle Program?

Poplin Elementary School is participating in the Crayola Color Cycle program this school year. This is a program that allows students to turn dried out markers into fuel. Crayola will recycle any brand marker, including dry erase markers and highlighters.

The program is simple. Students collect dried markers and Shannon Helms, Poplin’s Art Teacher, sends them to Crayola. There is a box for students to drop off dried out markers in Mrs. Helms’s classroom. Helms said, “As students come to art for their weekly lessons, they drop off the dried out markers. I hope that everyone will be willing to participate in this great opportunity to eliminate unnecessary waste and reduce our footprint!”
