Turn Markers into Energy!

I’m excited to tell you about a very special program I’m coordinating at our school in conjunction with Crayola. It’s called Crayola ColorCycle – an amazing new program devised to turn used markers into energy! 

All around Marion Jordan students and teachers will be collecting used markers that are ready to be discarded. The markers will be sent to a facility where they will be converted into clean fuel. This fuel can be used to power vehicles, heat homes, cook meals and more! 

Please help support our efforts by sending your kids in with any used markers you may have around the house – even non-Crayola brands. Drop-off boxes will be located around the school for your child to deposit the markers. 

Thank you in advance for participating! With the help of parents like you across the country, the Crayola ColorCycle program can keep tons of plastic out of landfills each year. 

Remember, don’t throw out that used marker—ColorCycle it!


D15 Community Closet

District 15 schools are always collecting clothing for our district families through our Community Closet! Please consider donating your lightly used clothing to this wonderful cause that helps so many local families!  There is a collection bin just inside the doorway at Marion Jordan or any D15 school buildings.  



Don't forget that while you're shopping, you can easily donate to Marion Jordan's PTA by shopping through smile.amazon.com.  Simply select "Marion Jordan PTA" as your organization the first time you visit the site, and Amazon will donate a percentage of your purchase to our school!  It's that easy!
