Original Artworks Deadline Extended


Great news! The PTO is extending the Original Works deadline for sending in your order to Wednesday November 12!

Last week your child came home with their ‘original work’ and now you can order that masterpiece copied onto mugs, keychains, notebooks, mouse pads, magnets, iPhone covers, potholders and much more!

Original Works make great holiday gifts and make your child proud! It’s also a wonderful way to support PTO’s efforts for after school programs, field trips, enrichment and more.
