Oxford Middle School is delivering 1,000 EarthDay grocery bags to Kroger
which donated the bags for the school's use. They are FANTASTIC.
What an enjoyable and meaningful project! My 45 students decorated 260
grocery bags with public awareness art and messages about the importance
of "saving the Earth." These 5th and 6th graders' bags will be
distributed at our local Kroger and FoodMax stores. I do not have the
equipment to scan these images, but I can send you a "still" shot of some
of our bags...they look great! Thanks for a great project!
