Please read your email regarding this.
Could each student PLEASE BRING 2 to 5 ITEMS TO 5W classroom BY WED. JAN. 20 please (We will look after them here in class)
NOTE: please do NOT bring newspaper, plastic bags, small bits of string / cloth / plastic or paper, etc.
The artists and Mr. Reed would like students to know that she or he will NOT be using the items she or he brings in – all items will be collected and redistributed amongst all of the Grade 5 students, by the artists, to make the project more interesting.
