Preschool gets a new director

Calvary Lutheran Church in Hillsboro, 937 N.E. Jackson School Road, has hired a new director for its preschool program.

Maggie Shuler, who has been a teacher at Calvary Lutheran Preschool for five years, will be the new director.

She has a bachelor’s degree in applied sociology, has taught elementary school, and is an active participant in the Hillsboro schools, where her children are students.

Shuler is committed to providing a program that prepares children for kindergarten through developmentally appropriate activities in a Christian environment. The preschool program is a ministry of Calvary Lutheran Church, although students need not be Lutheran to attend. Classes for 4-year-olds are on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Classes for 3-year-olds are Tuesday and Thursday from 9 to 11:30 a.m.

Charter school named top recycler of

lunch waste

City View Charter School in Hillsboro is the top collector in the state in the “Lunch Kit Brigade” recycling program, a free, national recycling program created by Lunchables Lunch Combinations and TerraCycle. By collecting used lunch kits, the school has helped to divert 1,541 units of lunch kit waste from the landfill.

Brigade schools earn points for every unit of waste they collect and send to TerraCycle. The points can be redeemed for charitable gifts or a cash donation to the non-profit or school of the collector’s choice. TerraCycle recycles the traditionally non-recyclable lunch kit waste into new products and materials.
