Art teacher Ms. Purdy is running a fundraising campaign named Lanyards and Laces: Learning to Weave!

She explains:

Learning handwork such as weaving and knot making introduces students to a relaxing and tactile experience -- one that improves focus and concentration, and is also a super fun way to interact with their peers.

My students need assorted colors of plastic lace, a craft book and lanyard hooks to create one-of-a-kind key rings, bracelets, and zipper pulls for their backpacks.

Parents, friends, and other school supporters can donate any amount to help Ms. Purdy reach her goal.
