INNOVATION LAB DONATIONS NEEDED!

There are some exciting things in the works at FCE! Next year we will have our first ever Innovation Lab! This will be a part of each student’s K-4 specials rotation. Students will experience the Innovation Lab once every 4 days during their specials block. Our inventors will be constructing, creating, collaborating, exploring, thinking critically and problem solving. We have been busy purchasing lots of resources and materials to support this space and we need your help.

We would like to begin to continually collect simple items for students to use. There will be a donation box in the hallway outside of the office to drop off any items you may have laying around the house that we can use to be innovative in the year to come.

Here is a list of suggested items we are looking for:

Markers, Pipe cleaners, Rubber bands, Masking tape, Raw noodles, Clear cups, Toilet paper tubes, Foil, Straws, Toothpicks, Craft sticks, Egg cartons, Washers, Yarn, Rocks,
