Square 1 Art

For years our school has participated in the square 1 art fundraiser. The fundraiser is where every student in Myersville creates a piece of art and has the ability to purchase items with their very own art on it! The timing of the fundraiser is in the fall so there is time to order gifts for your student, family, or friends for the holidays! All funds go towards purchasing art supplies to benefit all students.


This year poses a little different, but square one has offered a fabulous virtual option! This will be a weekly menu art assignment for all students, however optional for parents and guardians to submit photos if seeking to order from the catalog. The assignment will be posted in the September 21st-25th folder on your student's art Schoology page.


I did not want to miss out on tradition so I’m still trying to make it happen! See the message below from square one. More details to come!!


-Ms. Romagnoli, Art Teacher


Dear MYES families,


Welcome to Square 1 Art! We are excited to keep the tradition of partnering with your child's school to celebrate creativity and raise funds for the school! This year, we are celebrating 20 years of helping schools raise funds for education through the visual arts.


Wouldn't you love to share your child's artwork with family and friends? The Square 1 Art fundraiser provides you the opportunity to purchase keepsakes and gifts featuring your child's art! Every order profits your school.


Your 4 Simple Steps:

1. Your child creates art. Art Creation instructions and art/order deadlines will be provided by your Square 1 Art coordinator.

2. Take a photo of your child's art with your phone or tablet.

3. Upload the art online at square1art.com/shop/upload

4. You may then begin to shop for keepsakes!


Together, we can help support the school, and create keepsake memories of your child's art to enjoy for years! More detailed instructions coming soon...
