Fall…’tis the season for for smiling faces.  Strawbridge studios will be at school on Tuesday, October 10 for individual student portraits.  Choose your packet with the envelope provided and return it to your classroom teacher.  Or you can  pay online at:   strawbridge.net, enter our school code 101348 for options.   All students get their picture taken even if you choose not to purchase a packet.  This is a fundraiser for our school and creates lasting memories

If you haven’t yet, please take a moment to fill out the ArtSpace volunteer survey. Remember we ask all families to commit 20 hours of volunteer time each year. This survey helps us keep our volunteers organized so we can contact you for projects that are in your “wheelhouse”.  The survey is available at this link.

Art by Me order forms coming home soon.  This is ArtSpace’s primary fundraiser for our visiting artist program.  Art By Me, Inc. offers a unique way to transform your child’s artwork into beautiful, professionally made products, such as t-shirts, note cards, calendars and so much more. Please look for a proof of your child’s reproduced artwork accompanied by an order form from Art By Me, Inc.  The products available make great gifts for the upcoming holiday season. The pride the kids take in seeing their work reproduced and used by family members is pretty amazing and is an added benefit to this fundraiser.  If you have any questions about this project please email Ms. Jocelyn- gro.retrahcecapstranull@eseer.nylecoj.

Ms. Beth in the library would like to thank everyone for supporting the Fall Book Fair. This fundraiser was a big success and will result in many new books for the library. Thank you for helping the library grow! If you didn’t make it on campus to shop the book fair use this link. The selection is much larger. Books purchased online still benefit the ArtSpace library.  The online fair runs through Thursday, October 12th.
