Please continue to recycle your batteries, crayons/markers and dental waste (empty toothpaste tubes, toothbrushes, etc) in the bins in the front lobby at TEMS. YES, you can drop them off in the front lobby at this time, but cannot go into the rest of the school. Thank you for your efforts! 


What is 4Ocean?​

4Ocean is a global movement actively removing trash from the ocean and coastlines while inspiring individuals to work together for cleaner oceans. Every bracelet purchased ($20.00 each) funds the removal of one pound of trash from the ocean and coastlines, and acts as a reminder to curb your consumption of single-use plastic and symbolizes your commitment to a plastic-free ocean. Check out all your beautiful options HERE.
