Your Recycled MakerSpace Materials are Rolling in...Thank You!
The MakerSpace Carts at Chipeta are quickly becoming student's favorite mode of demonstrating mastery of a concept. The MakerSpace Carts are being used in nearly every grade level, and as part of nearly every subject. We currently stock the MakerSpace carts with a huge variety of recycled materials that students then reimagine into fantastic creations. We visit a recycling store in Denver called RAFT once a quarter to replenish our stocks, but we could also use your help with this endeavor. If you have any of the following items that you would like to donate to the MakerSpace Carts, please bring them by the library. Please do make sure items such as bottles are clean and dry. Any questions, contact Kristie Cichello, firstname.lastname@example.org.
- plastic grocery bags
- pipe cleaners
- glue sticks
- colored electric tape
- styrofoam balls
- popsicle sticks
- old game pieces (like Monopoly houses, etc.)
- spools of wire
- egg cartons
- Capri Sun/KoolAid juice pouch BOXES (not the actual pouches)
- plastic bottles
- googly eyes
- cardboard tubes
These are just a few ideas. if you're getting rid of something, especially craft items, and you think we could use it, send me an email and I'll let you know!!
OUR "MAKERS" THANK YOU!
DID YOU KNOW?
This past November there were an unprecedented
number of school districts throughout the State of Colorado on the ballot.
D11 was part of this movement, and unfortunately by a very slim margin,
did not pass the mill levy override and bond requests. As we move forward
seeking funding solutions, we ask that our families take the time to understand
how the State funds education and the impacts this has on D11. Please
or www.GreatEducation.org for more
information on how marijuana money contributes $0 to school operational funds,
how Colorado is a low-tax state, and what the Negative Factor is and its impact
on our current funding situation. We hope you will join D11 to spread the
word and work with us as we find solutions that are fiscally responsible,
voter-supported and educationally sound.
