Do you have a collection of things you&#39;d like to display in the case by the office at Adler Park? We&#39;d love to show them off! Where? Items will be placed in the display case in the foyer outside of the school office. Why? Students will get the opportunity to show off something they enjoy and are passionate about. Students will also be able to speak to their class about their displayed items, giving them the chance to present in front of their class. When? Your items will be on display for several weeks. The length of time will depend on the amount of students interested in showing items. How? <a href="http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/lib/redirect.php?res_id=4163">This form</a> will need to be filled out and turned in to Mrs. Bongle. Showings will be scheduled as forms are received. Student and parents will need to drop off the items before school on the first day and will need to be picked up on the last scheduled day.
