Learning Commons News & Request for Help
We are excited to announce that the Grand Opening of the Learning Commons MakerSpace is January 13! This space will provide all MGM students a unique learning opportunity to build, create, play, do, collaborate, read, and "make" ideas come to life.
The Learning Commons is in need of the following items for our new MakerSpace. If you are cleaning out old toys or closets/pantries, we need the following:
-Lego storage bins
-old board games (missing pieces are ok!)
-X-Box games (E rating only)
-Makey Makey kits
-Snap Circuit kits
-scenic shower curtains (such as oceans, beaches, space)
-makers, crayons, colored pencils
-wiggle eyes (all sizes)
Please send any donations to Ms. Kohout in the Learning Commons!
