This is your school connects message for 22 May 2018.
HELLO, THIS IS Marium A GRADE 5 student at EPS. I am spreading awareness about
how dangerous batteries can be if thrown in the trash. As we all know batteries
are a part of our daily life, but they can be very dangerous to us and our
environment if not disposed properly.They can cause landfill fires that burn
ubderground for years and pollute our water and soil. In humans it can cause
problems in the reproductive system and cancer. They take 100 years or more to
decompose if not recycled.There will be a bocx in the front office here at EPS
until 01 June where you can put all of your used batteries. Every battery you
put in will help rebuild our environment.
