Wanted: Thin Cardboard

The PTA is going to have a very fun Cardboard Sculpture art class for all kids at Highland Terrace in January 2016!

Kids will be able to use their imagination in this class and appreciate recycled art!

To make this project happen, we need your recycled, THIN cardboard (e.g. cereal boxes, tissue boxes, toilet/paper towel rolls, etc.) Please donate any thin and flattened cardboard that you think will be easy for children to work with!

Drop off your donations in the big box outside the HT Main Office. Together, let’s make this project happen!
