Calling All Donations…


huskey with glassesThe project, HUSKIES: Behind the Books, has officially been launched. The family letters have gone home, the business and personal donation letters are being finished and mailed, and the first donation came in today. Also, the 8th grade ELA teachers met with a reporter from the newspaper and the story should be in either tomorrow or Wednesday’s paper. This will be the first of many media features concerning this service-learning project. Tomorrow the students will begin learning about the resources they will be creating.

After the resources are completed, the students will be making decorativeglitter bookmarks. It would be great if everyone could bring in any extra decorating supplies, such as; markers, specialty scissors, glitter, glue, construction paper, tissue paper, etc. These supplies will be needed around November 25, 2013 (next week). The supplies do not have to be new, just bring in anything that might be at home. These bookmarks will be really special.
