CONGRATULATIONS!

The CLYNK Maine Recycles Championship Results are in and Cape Elizabeth Middle School placed #1 in the State of Maine followed by Pond Cove Elementary School who placed #2! This is an extraordinary accomplishment of not only showing our commitment to raising money for our schools but also our partnership with the environment and recycling. Both CLYNK and Hannaford will be awarding our schools with additional funds on top of our normal CLYNK revenue. Thank you to all of you who really stepped it up during this contest period and collected bottles and cans for our schools. The fee for this years 6th graders headed to Chewonki this week was highly subsidized thanks to your commitment to CLYNK and the Hannaford Gift Card program. Also the fee for the 8th grade celebration was also able to be waived this year due to our school communities participation in these important programs. Great job Cape Elizabeth!
