Fall Fete Needs You

As you prepare for Thanksgiving celebrations this weekend, please think about Fall Fete. The Fall Fete is only ONE WEEK AWAY – Saturday, October 14th 10am to 2pm.

Here’s a recap of what we need:

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 basket outside the Office (the sooner, the better).

Heading to the LCBO for weekend provisions?
Plan to pick up an extra bottle of wine for the Fall Fete Wine Raffle.
Last year’s wine raffle raised over $2,000 for our kids!
Drop off wine donations in the school office any time from now until Friday, October 13th.

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

Put on your baking hats for the Fall Fete. While you’re in the kitchen this weekend preparing terrific turkey feasts, please think about what you might whip up to donate this year for our bake table and cake walk. Baking is a great activity to enjoy as a family!

Bring your nut-free goodies to be sold at the bake table: squares, cookies, cupcakes and other delectable treats. Drop them off in the “nurse’s office” across the hall from the music room on Friday night (October 13th) or Saturday morning (October 14th) before 9:00am.

Our oh-so-popular cake walk needs your nut-free cakes! Drop them off outside the office by lunch time on Friday, October 13th. We’re looking for the most creative cakes ever! Go scary, go beautiful, go wild!! Cakes will be judged by our principal, vice-principal and cake walk coordinator and some fantastic prizes will be awarded.
At the Fete, use your tickets for a chance to spin and win one of these incredible creations! Share with your friends or keep it to yourself! We’ll leave that part up to you.
