Made By Milk Carton Contest

From Mrs. Weiner (Visual Art Teacher at Foley Middle School):

Cafeteria manager, Linda Hackman, asked me if I would be interested in entering the Made by Milk Carton Contest.  It is actually a wonderful STEAM project that promotes recycling.  Sculpture Club consisted of fourteen students that stayed after school for eight weeks and together we read through the rules to enter this nationwide contest.  Parent volunteer and Industrial Arts teacher, Gin Watts also volunteered her time to assist with the after school club and the project.
