We would like to ask families to contribute to our classroom "junk collection" by bringing in junk from home—items that typically get thrown away, e.g., paper towel rolls, old magazines, plastic bottles, cartons, and broken things. Please check all items and make sure they’re safe; rinse containers and remove items with sharp edges. Thanks so much!
