Cultural Art Fair Needs Your Help!
We are seeking volunteers to help fifth graders create some fantastic dancing Dragons for our upcoming Cultural Art Fair on February 24. Each fifth grade class is working on a paper mache dragon head with Ms. Martin in art class. The dragons need bodies so that dancers can fit inside and entertain their fellow students in the days leading up to the Cultural Art Fair, which will be a celebration of Chinese food, art, culture and music. That’s where you come in! If you are interested in helping with this project, please contact Sandra Chlebek at Sandra@chlebek.com or 847-551-1112 or Jan Faulkner Janice_faulkner@yahoo.com or 847-277-0252.
