Message from our Art Teacher

Please see the following message below from our fantastic Art teacher, Mrs. Fineberg!

Mrs. Fineberg is collecting thin cardboard boxes for a recycled art project for Youth Art Month. Cereal and cracker boxes are perfect. It would be helpful if you could flatten the boxes and even more helpful (but not required) if you cut along the folded parts of the box before you drop off in the office or art room. Thank you
