Announcements 12-10-13

News from Dynamic Design

Dynamic Design students created ornaments for a Christmas tree for the Festival of Trees last weekend. The tree was donated by Sally Lawyer. Students worked for three weeks on the ornaments during WIN Time. Five students helped decorate the tree at City Hall after school. The tree was auctioned off and raised $500 for Martha's Kitchen! The project was part of the community 's stewardship program.
