Elementary STEAM Classes Collecting Supplies for 2017-2018 School Year
Do you have a playroom, garage or bedroom full of toys your kids have outgrown? Do you have supplies left over from craft projects? Did you recently move and are now looking to get rid of packing supplies? Do you have “junk drawers” that you’ve been meaning to organize?

If you answered “yes” to any of these – or are looking for somewhere else to recycle plastic bottles, cereal boxes, juice cartons, and wrapping paper – you can donate the items on one of Keystone Oaks’ three elementary schools. The supplies will be used in the elementary STEAM classes, where students will find themselves building with various materials, repurposing objects and recycled materials and participating in a number of national and international STEAM initiatives.

Donated items can be dropped off in the blue bins outside of your child’s STEAM room.

  • Toilet paper and paper towel tubes
