2020 THE YEAR OF COVID-19
This school year will be different for all of us. Each Michigan Public School District will have its own individual plan for in-person and virtual attendance according to The Detroit News. Please check the information for your school district at their website. The due dates for applications for this school year are the same as last year. We have provided the 20-21 application form on this website.
What has no batteries, toxic paint or glue? Made in America green toys from a number of sources. These are some. Greentoys.com, Fat Brain toys and Target, Bed Bath and Beyond and Walmart are all selling green toys this year everything from tea sets to helicopters. Just ask the staff to direct you.

Monthly Ideas December
A good time to have students make a homemade draft guard to put at base of classroom doors that face outside. New kitty litter makes a great insulating filler and bay leaves inserted keeps away pests.
Have students find creative ways to make holiday wrapping paper from recycling items like cloth, comic strip newspaper, yarn, and look around school and home for other creative ideas.
