PTO Art Project Underway!

The PTO is happy to announce that the annual art project fundraiser, in partnership with the Original Works company, is underway.  This is where the children will create a special drawing (done in class, with the guidance of the teachers and/or room parents) that can then be produced onto numerous types of unique, useful products.  Check out to see some samples!  We encourage you as parents to talk with your kids about this and encourage them to think of something special to draw.  
This year the format is changing up a bit as we will move to completely on-line ordering system through the companies website.  There will be no more checks to write or cash to cough up!  Parents will receive an individualized letter sent home with their child's art, that will have a unique ordering code and instructions on how to order.  
Here are the key dates to remember:
  • Art work completed (in school) by Friday, February 15th
  • Letters sent home (with original art work) to parents by March 5th
  • Online ordering OPENS by March 5th
  • Online ordering CLOSES by March 15th
  • Art work returned to students by April 5th
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to the art committee at
