Global Cardboard Challenge – October 10th!

Playing together builds family and community connectedness! This year, Beechwood Middle School Student Leadership is hosting the Global Cardboard Challenge on Saturday, October 10th from 9 AM to 11 AM.  The Global Cardboard Challenge fosters creativity, play, and imagination in kids and adults around the world.

Here’s how it works…design an arcade style game using cardboard and other recycled materials. Set up your creation on the front lawn of the school on the morning of October 10th. Enjoy playing the games that other students and families created! 

Watch this video for some excellent ideas and get building!

This is a FREE family event. If your family plans to participate, please click here to RSVP. Also, we will have a community breakfast “share table” Please consider bringing a box of donuts, fruit, granola bars, juice, etc. to share. We’ll have coffee ready for the adults!
