Next Friday, June 7th in the afternoon, all 6th graders will be making plaster masks. Students need to wear clothes that can get dirty or bring a cover shirt. They should also bring a towel. We would love some parent help that day. Please email your child's teacher if you can. It would just be from 12:45-2:00.
