Original Works Fundraiser

Students have been working in their art classes to create works of art. We will have a virtual gallery with your student’s artwork available for viewing in November. Personal codes will be given during the first week of November so that you can purchase your student’s artwork on a variety of different products – notecards, water bottles, iphone covers, mugs, etc. These products make great gifts for grandparents, aunts and uncles for the holiday season. 30% of sales will go directly to the school.

NEW THIS YEAR:  Every order will receive a free sheet of stickers of your child’s artwork.  Also, new this year:   if you prefer to purchase product with another art work other than what is in the virtual gallery, please contact Leilani Micalizzi.


**  IF YOU DID NOT ORDER:  STICKERS OF YOUR CHILD’S ARTWORK is available for $2.  A sheet contains 12 – 2×3″ stickers.  100% of sticker proceeds goes directly to the school.  Stickers are available for purchase by student or parent at the front office with Mrs. Kiser.  **
