Quick Launch

March 06

​The Card Project will turn our children's art into unique, professionally printed greeting cards! Look out for your child's unique greeting card coming home in early April. Families will have the opportunity to order more of their child's card. There are also notebooks and sketchbooks with the children's own art on the covers!

Orders will be delivered by May 4 - in good time for Mother's Day! This is a wonderful fundraising opportunity for our school. The school will receive 20% of all sales. Visit

The Teachers and Classes are focusing on letter writing, Thank You cards, and written communication as ways of expression so this fundraiser is right in line with the curriculum that is occurring in classes!
