End of July Update

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer- it's crazy to think that school will be starting again in about a month! I noticed many stores are having great sales for back to school supplies, so it may be a  perfect time to start thinking about class supply lists:

1) Pencils
2) Handheld Erasers
3) Sketchbook (no lines, plain white paper) approx. size 8.5"x11" *if you have your sketchbook from last year, you do not need a new one*
4) Colored Pencils
5) Handheld Pencil Sharpener
6) Colored Markers (Thin and Thick)
7) Sharpie Marker (Black, Thin and Thick)

We have several projects posted on Donors Choose to get necessary supplies for projects this year. Please consider donating to our classroom page and PLEASE SHARE OUR LINK on your social media page! Our Donors Choose projects are updated periodically throughout the school year.

In addition to our Donors Choose Page, I have various items that we would like for our classroom (from cleaning supplies, to paper and furniture to name a few) on our class' Amazon Wishlist. Please consider donating items from our wish list (whether purchased through Amazon or not).
This wish list will also be updated periodically throughout the school year.

Enjoy the remaining weeks of summer vacation, I look forward to seeing everyone at the start of the 2017-2018 school year :-)

Trash Fashion

Students in grade 6 are starting "Trash Fashion" in art 100 which they will be working on until the end of the year. The students are designing and then creating outfits out of recycled materials. The students are re-purposing items that would normally been thrown away to create them.

If anyone is willing to save their “clean” trash for us, I would deeply appreciate it.
We are looking for pretty much anything, as long as it is free from food debris. :-)

Plastic Shopping Bags
Used Gift Wrap
Plastic Table Cloths
Plastic Containers from Salad, Spinach, etc
Coffee Cups (Styrofoam, Plastic)
Milk Jugs
Random Items (puzzle pieces, cds, fishnet materials)
