SME's special game/art opportunity

You know how your kiddo got a new Chromebook this year? Well, it came in a nice new cardboard box. Mrs. Richey, and her innovative mind, has come up with an amazing art opportunity for you kiddo. We will be sending home a Chromebook box with your kiddo and they can follow the direction on the sheet attached to complete their project! Once complete, email a picture to Mrs. Villagrana to add for a possible yearbook photo. villagrana.veronica@pusd.us
