    THE McKINLEY MAKERSPACE

    Starting in October, you will have one MAKERSPACE session

    each month during our regularly scheduled art class!

    Makerspaces provide hands-on, creative ways to encourage students to design, experiment, build and invent as they deeply engage in science, engineering and tinkering. A Makerspace is not solely a science lab, woodshop, computer lab or art room, but it may contain elements found in all of these familiar spaces. 

    This year, we will be focusing on using more recycled materials to encourage our students to reduce, reuse and repurpose. As you are cleaning out your closets, garages, basements, hobby rooms, etc., please consider donating to our very creative and worthy cause! There is a cardboard box in the vestibule of our school where you can drop off recycleable items or your child can bring them into school to drop off in the art room.

    Here is a list of items we are frequently in need of:

    wrapping paper  *  ribbon  *  popsicle sticks  *  buttons

    straws  *  masking tape  *  scrapbook paper  *  beads  *  strings

    googly eyes  *  pom poms  *  duct tape  *  aluminum foil rolls

    paper tubes  *  fabric  *  bottle caps  *  cardboard  * colored tape

    plastic containers  *  shoe boxes  *  stickers  *  paper plates

    If you have any questions on what is a needed/acceptable for donations, please email:
