While you are celebrating and giving thanks this weekend, please think about what you might donate to the Fall Fete which is coming up in only one week on Saturday, Oct. 18.

Basket Raffle

One of the highlights of the Fall Fete is our Basket Raffle. It takes a lot of time to organize and assemble the baskets and we need donations as soon as possible to make interesting baskets to raffle off.

Please, if you are out shopping this weekend, think about picking up a few new items for the baskets. We really need items related to: men’s items, women’s items, gourmet food & kitchen items, health & exercise, home spa and beauty items, gardening, and items for a movie night or a rainy day.

You can drop these items off in the baskets in your child’s classroom (the sooner, the better).

Fish Pond

Make a reel difference! Tackle your annoying toy clutter!  Cast out your small unbroken items for the fall fete fishpond.  Just one week left to help bait our fishpond hooks! We need TONS more lures. Please send items with your child to drop in the tackle box just outside of the school office.  Think about items no larger than a deck of cards, things that aren’t broken and please no plush toys. 

You can drop the Fish Pond donations off outside the office anytime.

Silent Auction

One of the key fundraising events at the Fete, the Silent Auction gives parents and kids the opportunity to bid on some fantastic experiences and articles. We are looking for hot items, including tickets (sports, music, theatre) and getaways at a cottage, hotel or resort. Any exciting connections you have can help make the auction even better.

For inspiration, take a look at our Silent Auction website at to start planning your bids! We encourage you to check back daily as more and more fantastic items are added.

Please contact if you have something to donate.
