Create your free online account at www.square1art.com, then simply snap a picture with any device and upload the artwork that your child or children have done during previous art weeks.

*You could even create an artwork as a family to mark this most unusual year.

I hope you can take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to celebrate your child’s creativity AND support the AmPark Community.

Super bowl Squares Fundraiser!

Wow! All squares have been filled!
Thanks for your support of the AmPark PA and stay tuned for our next fundraiser!

If you made the cut, check your email for a copy of the Super Bowl Square to identify your square(s) and good luck on February 7th!!

Here’s how it works:

When you pay via paypal your box will be randomly chosen. Choose as many squares as you want. Ask your friends and family to be a part of the pool as well.

A Super Bowl Square has 100 squares.
The NFC team will be assigned the top of the grid; the NFC team and the the AFC team will be on the left side of the grid. Once all the squares are filled we will pull randomly assign numbers 0 – 9 to the top and left side. Now each square represents a specific score in the game based on the column and row numbers.

Once the teams are chosen for the Super Bowl and the entire sheet is filled we will email you the spreadsheet.

Now you will just need to wait till the game is played on Sunday, February 7th to determine who the winners will be. A winner will be determined at the end of the 1st quarter, half time, 3rd quarter and final score. The winner is determined by looking at the last number in each teams’ score, and then matching those numbers on the grid and seeing which square intersects those two numbers. An example would be if the AFC versus the NFC in the Super Bowl, and the score at the end of the game was AFC 23, and NFC 14. The last number for the AFC is 3, and the last number for the NFC is 4. The square on the grid that has the AFC with a number of 3, and NFC score of 4, would be the winner.

Since this is a fundraiser half the pot will go to the school. The school will receive $1000.00. The winner of the 1st quarter will receive $150.00, half time $200.00, 3rd quarter $150.00 and final score $500.00 totaling to $1,000

Lucky 31 march raffle!

We were all disappointed when we had to discontinue picking the raffle winners in the middle of March. Thank you all for your patience! We haven’t forgotten and know that everyone can use a little good news. As it seems more and more likely that we will not be returning to school any time soon, we decided to go ahead and choose the remaining raffle winners.

Raffle winners were chosen using a number randomizing app in the presence of several parent and administration virtual witnesses one after another starting with the March 14th winner. Congratulations to all the winners! Click on the winning list below!

Winnings can be paid via Paypal or check.
