A note from Mrs. Barranco

Hello Everyone,


I am going to do a weaving project with the kids that requires a lot of CD s or DVD s.


I would love to have donations of old CD s and DVD s if you have any or if you know anyone that has some. It doesn't matter what they are or if they are scratched up. We will be weaving on top of them.


Thank you all so much!!
