3rd graders at Coffin are working on felt collages for the upcoming Barn Dance.  Each 3rd grade class from each of Marblehead’s elementary schools will make their own quilt.  Coffin’s themes are apples, apple trees (don’t ask how that happened!), pumpkins, and sunflowers.  Students designed their own composition that featured their class theme.  It is fun to see all the different interpretations of the theme!  The quilts will hang in the Glover school gym for our evening barn dance, and they will return to Coffin afterwards for display.
