Thank you so much to everyone who came today to help with the objects.  We really appreciate you!  Now we need another great turn out on Monday.  There are now quite a few kids with cardboard that is ready for cutting, so we would love help with that and with continuing to support kids making their patterns.  Even if you only have 30 minutes in the morning at drop off, we can use you.  We will still need cardboard cut after Monday, too, most likely, so come on by and we’ll give you some to cut!
