Square 1 Art order forms are on their way home now through the beginning of next week! The grade level that has the most students participate will win an extra clay project at Forest Grove and a chance to help paint the teacher's chair at Bauer!Here are some examples of books that were bought this year for the art room with Square One Art fundraiser money! When you purchase products from Square 1 Art, a portion of the proceeds comes back to the art room! Our current supply budget covers the cost of all the basic consumable supplies (paint and paper, etc) that we need to create thousands of pieces of art each year. Square 1 Art funds help the art room to add non-consumable teaching tools (like books, paint rollers, storage solutions etc).
When you order from Square 1 Art please order online if at all possible! (This makes keeping track of the paperwork easier and more accurate!)
Order Deadline at Forest Grove: November 12, 2014 (if you can get it in by Friday 7th that's even better :) )
Order Deadline at Bauer Elementary: November 11, 2014
Here is a sneak peek at what each grade level has done this year!

Fourth Grade: Learned about Edgar Degas and created action figures!
