Advent season is just around the corner so it’s the perfect time to remind you of our cool annual tradition. The Angel Foundation for Learning is preparing for its annual sale of Christmas cards and once again, in addition to offering the AFL classic card editions, we are creating a special 2023 Christmas Card collection from select pieces of student artwork.

All students are invited/encouraged to participate in an art contest.

Using any medium they wish, students are invited to submit digital versions of Christmas themed artwork. Any holiday motif is welcome, though naturally we ask students to consider creations that reflect our Catholic Christmas traditions.

Submissions must be in full colour, and be sent electronically as high resolution jpeg (300dpi or larger) to

Suggested size would be 8-1/2 x 11 or 4-1/4 x 5-1/2” (or something that is easily scalable down to the specified size).

Deadline for submissions is Friday, October 27th at 12:00 noon.

The students who have created the 10 winning submissions will each receive a small gift pack as well as a $25 Cineplex gift card as our thanks. They will also be acknowledged as the artist on the cards and in our newsletter and other promotional materials.

Staff are asked to ensure that participating students have parental consent to submit their artwork and personal information (Name (first name, last initial), school name, grade). Consent form is attached for this purpose.

We can’t wait to see what our talented students will come up with this year.

All proceeds from the sale of the Christmas cards will be directed to supporting TCDSB students in need.
