Collecting Unused Items to Use in STEAM Lessons
Collecting Unused Items to Use in STEAM Lessons
Depew Union Free School District
Friday, September 22, 2017

The Cayuga Heights Elementary STEAM initiative would like to take some of your old items off your hands. These items will be put to good use in the classroom as teachers incorporate science, technology, engineering, art, and math into their daily lessons. Please consider donating items you are no longer using.  

A collection container has been set up in the foyer at Cayuga Heights. If items can be safely transported in your child's backpack, please consider sending your unused items to school. Parents can also stop by the building to drop off items.
