  • Square 1 Art Fundraiser

    This year we have a hybrid option.  Some students will come home on or about November 16th with a catalog displaying the art they created in school.  Due to our hybrid scheduling, some children will not have the opportunity to make art in school, but will still have the virtual option to choose from!

    All orders, whether from the in-school art catalogue or virtual, must be placed by December 4, 2020. Orders will be mailed directly to your home. 

    1. Create art!   There is downloadable art paper on the website.
    2. Photograph & upload your art to Square1Art.com – make sure that you choose “Tawanka” as your school so we get credit for your purchase!  Follow the tips online to get the best finished product!  ***Helpful tip – use Google Chrome when uploading your art.
    3. Shop!  Every order profits the school.  There are lots of great products to choose from!

    Here is a link to the parent portal where you can find more information, upload art, and place your orders!
