The CLYNK Challenge is on - through March 26th


Our school is competing in the CLYNK For Schools Recycling Challenge which takes place between January 29-March 26th! Every year CLYNK and Hannaford Supermarkets team up to reward the schools that make the biggest recycling impact.


Take home a CLYNK bag from the lobby or your classroom, fill it with bottles and cans, and drop it
off at Hannaford. Every cent raised goes directly to support the CLYNK for Outdoor program.
Top performing schools earn cash prizes, and in addition to Hannaford’s matching funds.


In 2017, CEMS came in #1 and Pond Cove was #2 across the entire state!

The CLYNK program has proven results with over $47,000 raised in returnables since 2009.


Fill and return CLYNK bags to support Middle School outdoor education programs. Bags labeled by grade level are available in the Pond Cove lobby and in each students classroom. Funds raised stay with your child’s grade level and are used to support their outdoor education programs in Middle School such as the 5th grade walk along the Boston Freedom Trail and the 6th grade trip to Chewonki.


It is estimated that over $12,000 per grade needs to be raised by December of your child’s 6th grade year to continue these programs. Excess funds raised stay with your child’s grade and may further reduce the cost to parents or be used to offset the costs of future programs. Start early, start now and keep on CLYNKing!!

  • Give bags to family members
  • Take bags to a neighborhood party
  • Have mom & dad take bags to work
  • Take bags on vacation with you

Fill the bags with returnable bottles and cans (no more than 20lbs please) and return them to ANY CLYNK (Hannaford) location in Maine.
