Original Works

Our schools closed right in the middle of our Original Works fundraiser! Although we are currently unable to receive and submit paper orders, the team at Original Works has set up an Online Ordering Option for our school.

You can place orders at www.OriginalWorks.com/store and have orders delivered directly to your home.

Use our school code TE so that your purchase will benefit our PTA.  These items make fantastic gifts for loved ones who are far away (or who are not so far away but who are “social distancing”).

More information can be found on the Online Family Letter below.

If your student brought home a sample magnet the last day of school, hold on to that.  You will be able to purchase (or return) that magnet once we are back at school.
