            If you can get the leftover decorations from school events, they are great
    resources. Our museum is located in an historic hotel used for proms. The
    hotel staff scrounges for me from events and projects they have here. One of
    the maintance guys just dropped off particleboard. I'm going to use it for a
    stamp making activity in our Summer For Kids program.

    Subject: more on new school

    As the retiring (again) teacher and I were going through stuff, I noticed
    several other teachers coming in and returning things they'd borrowed. After
    the stories I've read on this list, I thought that was a good sign. He keeps
    a special drawer in the desk for the frequently-borrowed items, so he won't
    have to unlock the precious art storage during class so often.

    Really, I was impressed with the supplies. My mom (retired teacher) came by
    and she was also astonished. I mentioned this to an aide who came by (old
    high school classmate of mine) and she said to go ahead and make a big order
    anyway, since there was no guarantee I'd get it next year. Good advice, I'm

    While I was there, the teacher was folding up yards and yards of this
    gorgeous deep purple stuff - a material like dryer sheets, and handfuls of
    cardboard holographic stars. He said it was from the school "social". I
    asked if they re-used it and he said no, they just stuff it in the boiler
    room and it gets too messed up to re-use! I was amazed. Now I keep thinking
    about what I could do with it (Mardis Gras!!)
