​The Card Project turned our student's art into unique, professionally printed greeting cards, of which you would have received a personalized sample of your child's art ! Families now have the opportunity to order some of your child's cards, notebooks, and/or sketchbooks with the children's own art on the covers!

Orders are due Wednesday, April 8th, 2018.

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!
