Square 1 Art

Parents, your student came home with a custom catalog featuring their artwork from Square 1 Art this week. This company provides you the opportunity to purchase keepsakes for the whole family containing their masterpiece. In addition to celebrating your student's artistic accomplishments it will raise much needed funds for the Music and Art Department.

Select from one of these three easy ways to order:

  2. Use paper form on catalog
  3. Call 888-332-3294 to order

You will need the access code from the catalog that came home with your student to order.

Paper orders are due by November 13.

Online orders are due by November 21.



  • N. Riverside Elementary School will begin a Milk Chocolate Bar sale on Monday, Nov. 2nd . The sale will end on Dec. 2nd. The funds raised will be used for activities at school that directly affect your students. No milk chocolate bars will be sent home without your consent.
  • The box will contain 48 milk chocolate bars at $1.00 each. Additional bars will be checked out after the money has been received from the first box.

  • As a SAFETY PRECAUTION, please do not allow your student to sell “DOOR TO DOOR”. The safety of our children is our first priority. Please help by selling to your friends, relatives and co-workers.
  • DO NOT leave the bars in direct sunlight or expose to heat. You are responsible for any milk chocolate bars sent home and for turning the money in on time.
  • For health reasons, no milk chocolate bars are to be returned to school.

Prizes needed!

We are planning on giving students prizes for following the NRES expectations. We would like to do a drawing every week based on the tickets students earned for great behavior. We will need quite a few prizes that will be included in the drawing. Do you know anyone or any business that might donate to us? If so, please contact Oliver Mujica at
