Global Carboard CHALLENGE: 2016 Plans


The Global Cardboard Challenge is here! 5th and 4th grade students are creating blueprints for their cardboard creations in art class with Mrs. Davidson during the month of September, and in October, the plans will be brought to life in the Media Center with Mrs. Schneider. Students and parents should keep in mind that students need to supply their own cardboard for the challenge. This could be something as simple as a cereal box, or several larger boxes combined.


Cardboard for 4th grade students should be at school no later than Monday, October 3rd. Cardboard for 5th grade students should be at school no later than Friday, October 7th. Cardboard will be stored in the students classrooms until the challenge.


Thank you for supporting our future designers, engineers, and inventors!

Mrs. Davidson and Mrs. Schneider
