Today is a snow day, school is canceled and I'm stuck in! So, I thought I'd write a post. I have a few pictures of bulletin boards I've recently done and thought I'd post them, but now that I'm thinking about it, I'm going to write a bit as well...

In my opinion, art teacher always come up with some of the best bulletin boards in their school. We spend countless hours, cutting, mounting, stapling, labeling, laminating, trimming, painting, sign making, description making, poster-making, eek, and more, on our bulletin boards and I think our efforts should be documented (and shared).
