Kids Kreations Art Fundraiser is here – DUE NOV 6!!!


This September, all of our students worked to create an original piece of art for our Kids Kreations Fundraiser.  We have just received back the art and order sheets and they should be coming home in the next few days.

If you don’t have experience with this art fundraiser, or if you need a reminder, here’s the short version:

The students made their art and we sent it to the Kids Kreations folks, who have made a FREE sheet of stickers for each student.  The art and stickers will be coming home ASAP along with an order sheet for products if you wish to order.  This is the cool part! You can choose from over 50 products (mugs, notecards, pillows, coasters, keychains, and more!) to order with your kid’s art on it. The Sunset PTSO makes a percentage of the total order that we place this fall.  Samples will be up at school on today.

Ordering instructions will be in your packet – you can use the order sheet and pay with check/cash or you can order online with your student’s ArtID (also in packet).  Orders are DUE back to us on NOVEMBER 6 so we can stay on a timeline to get the products back by mid-Dec so people can send out for holiday gifts if you wish.

Other details:

  • The stickers are yours to keep.  You are not obligated to buy anything!
  • You can also access your children’s art from past years!  For instance, if you decide you want to have a tile for each year but didn’t think of it last year, you can order it now for last year and this year!  Just enter the last name in the search bar on the website:
  • You can order art after the deadline, but you will pay WAY more in shipping.  As long as you order by the deadline, online or on paper, and choose the “ship to school” option, you pay max $5 in shipping and the rest is subsidized by the company as part of the fundraiser.
  • You can upload other original art to be made into products!  If you have another child who wants to do it (or maybe you are artsy and want to make something yourself!) there is a button to upload on the website and you can order products for the fundraiser!

This is such a fun, creative project.  It’s honestly a bonus that we get some money from it – the best part is to see the kids so excited about their creations and have some special keepsakes to remember these ages!

Thinking of school supplies???

Hard to believe it’s almost that time, but we are less than a month until the start of the 2018-2019 school year!  Many of you may be starting to think about school supplies, and the lists are up on the Sunset Primary website at

The PTSO wanted to pass along a couple of ideas for your shopping!  First, has the updated 2018-2019 supply lists for each grade.  You can search for Sunset Primary and it will automatically fill your cart at Target, Amazon, Walmart with the school supplies – then you can edit from there if you need more/less of something.  (Bonus – log in to Amazon using AmazonSmile and make sure Sunset is your nonprofit organization of choice to get money back!)

Office Depot/Office Max also will donate 5% of your school supply purchase back to Sunset Primary if you mention our school code which is 70084751.  The school can use the credit to buy more supplies!

Happy shopping and enjoy the last month of summer break!!

SCREENAGERS – This Thursday!

West Linn Primary School PTAs/PTSOs are co-sponsoring a showing of Screenagers THIS THURSDAY 6/7 at 6pm at Trillium Creek Primary School.  Trillium Creek PTSO is providing free childcare for the younger kids but we encourage older kids to view with their parents.  This is especially timely with summer approaching (more requests for “screen time”) and our 5th graders moving up to middle school in the fall.

See below and watch this website and our FB page for more info ASAP!

Get Your BEAK On!

Show a fellow Eagle some Sunset love by “beaking” them!  This ongoing fundraiser is a great way to show some school spirit!

Here are the details:

1.  Pick a student to “beak” and a date.

2.  Email with the student’s name, address (if possible), date, and how you are going to pay the suggested donation of $20 (cash, check payable to Sunset PTSO, or Venmo @Sunset-PTSO).

3.  The Beaking Committee will place signs, under cover of night, the night before the desired date, ready to surprise the student in the morning when they discover they’ve been “beaked!”

4.  The Beak-ee will enjoy their signs (and take pics to share on our FB group if desired!) for 1-2 days at which point they are removed by the Beaking Committee.

Get your Beak on and email today!!
