Missed out on the 5th Grade Photo Art at the Tiger Fest? - We had such a great response at the Tiger Fest that we wanted to offer everyone the chance to purchase this amazing photograph that every single one of the 5th graders helped to create! Every Fifth Grade Student had a photo taken at school and these photos were edited to create this very special photo keepsake. Every student in the 5th grade is in one photo, along with their signature! Each color photo is 16x24, mounted on styrene. It is sturdy enough to hang on the wall, or suitable for framing.
If you would like to order, please send a check in an envelope to the PTA (you can send it with your student or drop it off at the office). Make your check for $50 to: Jefferson PTA. Please add: 5th GRADE PHOTO in the MEMO section. If you have any questions please email Ioana Fernandez at firstname.lastname@example.org.
