  • Using Masks to Understand the Many Faces of Identity

    Ms. Cabanez is asking for $595.92:
    My students need the mod podge for the paper mache masks, the origami paper will be cut to decorate the masks, the acrylic paint will decorate while also drying quickly, and wiggle eyes to decorate.

    Shining a Spotlight on Elder Abuse | NCOA
    June 15 is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day - an important annual event that spotlights a devastating daily occurrence for millions of older adults. According to the World Health Organization, about 1 in 6 older people experienced some form of abuse in the past year. Too often, elder abuse goes unreported and untreated.
