Treasure Trove of Conservation


McGuffey students in Kindergarten through Grade 2 were treated to a performance about energy conservation by the National Theatre for Children. Performers Jenna and Grant used a pirate (with a door knob for a hand), a star fish, a mermaid, and a Pie-rat to demonstrate how we can conserve natural resources.

The show is sponsored by Duke Energy. Each McGuffey family is eligible to receive a Treasure Box with samples of items that conserve energy – like a CFL bulb and an aerator. Duke Energy customers will need their account numbers. Non-Duke Energy customers are eligible for a partial kit. There are three ways to order a kit for your household:

  1. Go to
  2. Call 1-855-386-9548 or,
  3. Complete and mail the form included in the student workbook that will come home with your child this week.

You will see “McGuffey Foundation School” on the list of school choices.

Many thanks to Duke Energy, the National Theater for Children and Jenna and Grant for this learning opportunity! We look forward to hosting an NTC traveling troupe again in November for Grades 4-8.

P.S. Your child might bug you to request the kit as the performers told us that an awesome LED ring is included.
