Fall Decorative Items Needed

The 5th Grade Art & Library students are working on a special Project Based Learning unit. The students have the opportunity to design and complete a professional Fall Season window display in the Mueller's Loft windows on the corner of Ryan and Division Streets in Downtown Lake Charles. The display will be featured throughout the month of November. Installation of the display window will take place on October 22.

Students are in need of donated or borrowed fall decorative items such as pumpkins (real or fake), leaves, garland, hay stacks or fall florals. Please send donated items to school with your student ASAP. If you would like to lend decorative items for this purpose, please label all pieces. They will be safely returned in early December. For more information, please contact Mrs. Fuselier at or Ms. Vanchiere at Mrs. Fuselier & Ms. Vanchiere greatly appreciate your help and support!
