Square 1 Art Fundraiser until April 22

The Square 1 Art Fundraiser is going on now! Please take a look at your child’s catalog, which should have come home last week. Every purchase you make will help our schools.

The art teachers have outdone themselves and created wonderful projects for the kids so that the artwork looks great on any of the Square 1 Art items. So whether you want to start or add to your collection of coffee mugs or plates, or buy gifts for upcoming birthdays, the artwork will complement any item from the collection!

Three Easy Ways to Order:

  1. The paper order form attached to their custom catalog.
  2. Online at www.square1art.com/shop.
  3. Phone Customer Care 888-332-3294.

 

Ordering online is easy – the back of your catalog has your child’s Square 1 account number and all of the information you need to order your child’s artwork. If you have misplaced the catalog, you can email Betsy Cooper at ewebbcooper@gmail.com and she will provide your child’s Square 1 account number. Otherwise, we gladly will take order forms along with a check – please submit these to your child’s classroom teacher in an envelope labeled “Square 1 Art” and it will find its way to me!

You can still place your orders ONLINE and BY PHONE until MONDAY, APRIL 22. So don’t delay! Items will be shipped to the schools and distributed to classrooms during the week of May 8.
