Varsity jackets may be ordered using this order form.

America Recycles Day!

Communities all over the country are pledging to recycle more and divert usable materials from landfills. Our school-garden benefits from your mobile e-junk recycling if you bring your devices and ink cartridges (we especially LOVE large printer and copier toner cartridges!) to the dropbox outside the main office at CHS and/or The FOUNDry at 298 Northampton St. In addition, on Saturday, November 14, The FOUNDry and other local organizations are hosting a Toolraiser, encouraging families to recycle other materials at one convenient location. Bicycles, DIY/yard tools, used clothing and mobile e-junk will be accepted from Noon-4 PM. Pelion will be there to receive other garden-related materials–feel free to drop off BoxTops and Labels for Education as well!

New No-Cost Way to Help CHS

Do you plan on shopping online this holiday season? Would you like a simple, no-cost way to support City Honors School and the Pelion Community Garden? We hope you answered yes to both of these questions because the school receives needed funds when supporters shop online at their favorite retailers as long as they click through the eScrip Online Mall. The websites of over 800 popular retailers are included in the program, including favorites such as The Gap, eBay, the Apple Store, Walmart, Banana Republic, Bass Pro, Best Buy, Crate and Barrel, Macy’s and Barnes and Noble.

You’re ONE CLICK away from supporting City Honors School and the Pelion Community Garden when you shop online! It’s easy, there are no cards to register and it can mean hundreds of dollars to us.

If you are already helping us earn through the TOPS in Education program and have re-registered your TOPS card this school year then you are already signed up for eScrip. If not, please consider registering on to start earning!

Thanks to everyone who takes the time to participate in these small but effective fundraising programs. Our goal is to make the Pelion Garden a self-sufficient entity at City Honors. We appreciate your support!
