A Note From Mrs. Binnick

Hi Penny Road Families,

The art room has been a busy place over the past months, and some of the projects we are doing now and in the future involve paint, clay, and other messy materials. I have found that having baby wipes for students to wipe their hands clean at the end of class has been working well! It saves water and decreases the amount of clean up time needed during messier classes.

If you are able to donate some packages of 7''x 6'' approx. baby wipes to the art room for this purpose, it will be greatly appreciated by all of our Penny Road students! Any brand will work- Huggies, Pampers, Target, and generic brands are all welcome. Thank you so very much for any families who have already donated any supplies this year already! The art your children are making is beautiful!


Artfully Yours,

Mrs. Binnick
