Fall Fundraiser for the Art Department!

Starting this fall, Jeffries will be participating in the Art to Remember Program! Art to Remember is an art fundraising company that helps school art programs raise money for their classrooms. 
Here's how it works:
Your child(ren) will be creating artwork during art class and will be shipped to Art to Remember. At the end of September, you will receive an Art to Remember custom order form featuring your student’s artwork. Art to Remember reproduces your child’s own artwork on a variety of quality items that make ideal gifts and keepsakes (many under $15) for your friends and family. To make it easy, your purchases will be placed online. Your items will be shipped to you in time for holiday giving!

Below are just a few keepsake items to choose from:

More information will come home with your child(ren)
in the upcoming weeks!
