Parent, Student, and Teacher Communication:
Dear Parents and Students,
By October 12, 2018, we need to collect a large amount of aluminum cans for our recycling unit. If you can donate standard size cans, that have been rinsed and are straight, we would greatly appreciate your help. Please send your donations to Mrs. Beabout.
If you ever have an abundance of school supplies that you would like to donate to the classroom, please do not hesitate. We are always in need of: pencils, glue sticks, scissors, colored pencils, markers, composition books, tissues, and various craft supplies.
Our needs vary depending on the time of the year, but it seems our greatest need is muscle and time. We have advisors from the community (master gardeners, extension agents, youth educators, etc.) that help us to plan and manage our outdoor spaces, but it is mostly teachers who provide the labor. If you can donate time, man-power, resources, or even some good ideas, please contact me.
