Costumes Needed

posted Apr 15, 2016, 12:41 PM by Melissa Kapeckas

When Martha McLure retired last year from her position as Social Studies teacher extraordinaire, we lost more than a beloved, colorful and charismatic teacher, we lost our Romeo and Juliet wardrobe of costumes that she generously shared with us year after year.  These costumes helped our ELA students truly adopt the characters they were portraying.  If you have any of the following lying around your house, unused, unwanted - please consider donating them to the ELA 7/8 Team. Any donations can be brought in to teachers Samantha Pererya, Joe Pisco, and/or Peggy Stephens-North.


Medieval Clothing

Crowns

Capes

Gowns

Hats

Friar robes

Masquerade Masks

Costume Jewelry

Fur collars (preferably fake)

and of course  - a large trunk in which to store these items
