WE WANT YOUR RECYCLABLES! Hello Leverett Parents! In art class, we will soon be creating a coral reef out of recyclables for Earth Day, to bring attention to the problem of pollution in our oceans. We are going to need lots of recyclables to build our coral reef: bottles, plastic packaging, cardboard, tagboard (like cereal boxes). If you have anything you think our kids could use to make a coral reef, feel free to send it to school with your child, and have them drop it off in the art studio. Thanks so much for your help! -Mrs. Smith
