Re: [teacherartexchange] casting paper a quickie using TP

We are a rural public school, and right after Thanksgiving every elementary
classroom will have a tree, there will be one in the hallway. We have a
Christmas Program, with traditional songs sung, and I know all art will turn
to Santa, snowmen, elves, & all the other tradtions of the holiday. Our high
school will be putting on a production of "The Christmas Carol". We have
never had a complaint. The one big change came when the staff tired of the
inequity of the traditional gift exchange, so now students can bring a
present for the local pet shelter - old rugs, dog chews, leashes, collars,
etc. We called the shelter & found out what they needed and that is the list
we send home with students. This way no student is singled out for not
participating, and students enjoy knowing their offerings are going to an
animal at a shelter.
