Take Pride in yOur Neighbourhood

Just a reminder, discarded cigarette butts are garbage that pollutes the environment and can sicken animals. Please do not throw your butts on the ground anywhere but especially not near the school where our children walk and play every day. Besides polluting our ground, the butts get washed into the storm drain system. It also gives our children the message that pollution of this sort is acceptable.
