Discovery Fair 2013:
Calling all students! Join the Discovery Fair 2013 by creating a work of art with a style all your own! Expanding your imagination is the focus of this event. It is designed to inspire all students to use, or “reuse” anything of their choice as an art medium to create “a unique work of art.”
It’s easy! Just collect anything from your home or yard. Partnering with a friend, doubles the fun. Here are some ideas to get you started. Use an art canvas, paper, glue, seashells, colored sand, hair locks (from your last haircut), laundry lint (it has color!), stones, a glue gun, popsicle sticks, marshmallows, cereal, paint, cuttings from magazines, collage, empty chicken eggs... there is no limit!
Fill out and turn in your application by Friday, February 1 (extended deadline). Your project submission is due by Monday, February 4, and the Discovery Fair 2013 Artists’ Reception will be held on Thursday evening, February 7, from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
Milk Caps For Moola
Milk Caps For Moola is a program sponsored by the Longmont Dairy that helps our kids earn money for their school. Longmont Dairy milk caps are worth 5¢ each! Students can drop them in the collection slot in the library, or in the jar at The Stone Cup.
Please send in all eligible caps: milk, chocolate milk, strawberry milk, half & half, whipping cream, orange juice, lemonade, raspberry lemonade, classic and cinnamon eggnog are eligible. Just save as many as you can; from your bottles, or collect them from your family and neighbors. This will be an on-going fundraiser so please continue to save caps even through the summer!
