Jean Carmody
Glen Hills Elementary School
Cranston, RIUSA

We decorated 350 bags!

About our project: About our project: The parents, students and faculty of Glenn Hills Elementary School found this to be an exciting and wonderful way for students to get involved in the community. We are a school very much involved with our community, so it wasn't a surprise to see the enthusiasm on my students faces when they created these bags! This Earthday Project is one of many 'internet' projects for our school to be involved in and I am hoping with this success, other educators will be interested in participating in other 'online' projects. I am also hoping to get other art educators in my district involved next year! You can find a sampling of our bags at :-)
