We are very excited to again host artist Leni Newell for a week-long artist residency for our fifth graders! The Batik project they will be doing requires a TON of newsprint, so we’re coming to our NRE families for help. Starting now, through the first week in October, please send in your newspapers! You can send with your bus-riders to turn in to teachers, and we will have a donation collection at carpool as well. We need specifically black and white newsprint, we cannot use the colorful or shiny inserts, so toss those in your recycling bin. We need lots, no amount is too much! If you have a connection to someone who has lots of newspaper, please let us know! Email Megan Weddington at firstname.lastname@example.org, I will pick up larger amounts if needed. Thank you!!
