Collab & Future Teachers Of America Need Your Shoes!

Collab and the Future Teachers of America are teaming up with Shoebox Recycling to host a shoe drive at Burlington High School from today until the end of the school year.

If you have any unwanted shoes at home that are “worn, but not worn out,” please bring them in to BHS and deposit them in any of the boxes you find around the school. The shoes will go to people in need, or will be refurbished  or they will be disposed of properly, instead of taking up space in landfills needlessly. Bring them in to us! We’ll get rid of them for you! Besides, they have no resale value – nobody wants to buy your old shoes on eBay or Craigslist. It’s a win-win!

These shoes can be any style, and age. The only exceptions are:

  • No huge winter boots
  • No Hockey Skates or shoes with sharp cleats
  • No shoes with holes in the soles
  • No wet or mildewy shoes – because seriously, why do you even still have those?

If you have any questions, see Mr. Lally, the advisor to Collab, or Ms. Lombardo, the advisor to the Future Teachers of America, both of whom are on the English hall. Otherwise, we’d love to fill our boxes with your shoes!

And here’s a video from Shoebox Recycling themselves:

Collab Reading at True North – 5/16/12

On Wednesday, May 16th, Collab will be hosting an unveiling of their 2012 edition of the magazine at True North in Burlington, including an open mic of students reading their own published work. The event will begin at 6:00 PM.

Students, if you are interested in signing up to be one of our readers, please see Mr. Lally or Michelle Lee ASAP. You can read original pieces (published or unpublished), or if you’d prefer, you may read a poem or story that you simply like.

True North has also partnered with Collab to be a vendor of the magazine for the first time this year. So if you can’t make the reading, but would like to purchase a copy of the magazine, stop by True North for a muffin, some coffee and to pick up a copy of the BHS literary magazine. The cost is $10. For more information on Collab, please visit their website.
