In this workshop you will complete a school calendar that includes student pictures, poetry, artwork, and exemplary models. Bring your school calendar so that we can include important dates, school events, students birthdays, and Internet addresses for monthly, and thematic studies. Leave with a calendar worthy to post on your bulletin board.
