Fifth grade will be working on a STREAM (Science Technology Research Engineering Art Math) project that requires the use of fabric from clothing. We are requesting donations of clean, unwanted items that are all, or mostly, made of cotton. Denim is good as well. These items will not be worn by students. Instead, students will cut and repurpose them into functional objects. Our fifth graders are learning about how Fast Fashion is killing our planet and how upcycling our clothing is one way to control the waste. The EPA estimates that more than 50% of the clothing we “donate” ends up in landfills or incinerators.
Please place donations in a bag labeled, STREAM and drop them off at school or send them in with your child.
