We will be making pet rocks in science. Please bring in a rock (or 2) by this Thursday 3/24. It would be helpful if the rock was big enough and smooth enough to draw and paste things on.

School Supplies Needed

We are in need of a few supplies. Each classroom could use glue sticks (these run out very quickly), Wet Wipes and sandwich size ziplock baggies.

Thank you so much for your help!
