Prairie Farms' Milk Caps

Everyday, families like yours drink milk at breakfast, with meals and snacks. What if you could affect real change by just saving the caps? Prairie Farms now makes it easy for you to give back to St. Mary School.

Aluminum Cans

You can support St. Mary School by recycling your used aluminum cans.  There is a recycle bin for aluminum cans in the school parking lot for easy drop off. All cans should be bagged. Income from recycling aluminum cans is used to pay for transportation for the Kindergarten field trip to Koch Nook Dairy and Roger’s Bakery and for 5th-8th graders to participate in Olympic Day in Quincy.
