Let the Fete Help with your Fall Cleaning!

Planning on doing some fall cleaning? We can help! Get rid of your unwanted items and help raise funds for our great school by donating the following to this year’s Fall Fete.

We are looking for USED TOYS!

Small used toys for the Fish Pond. Donation bins are located outside the office.

We are looking for NEW ITEMS:


This popular raffle can’t happen without contributions from our families!  Donations of new items are collected, sorted and assembled into beautiful, themed baskets and raffled off at the Fall Fete.

Please send new items with your child – baskets are outside the office. Need some ideas?  Themes from past years have included – arts & crafts, toys, games, books, sports related items, things for the BBQ, gourmet food & kitchen items, health & exercise, home office, home spa and beauty items, items for a movie night or a rainy day, items related to gardening, chocolates, candy, coffees, teas and other gourmet/luxury items. Please think of what you would like to win when making your donations!


Donate a bottle, then try your luck at winning a case!

Back by popular demand is the parents’ favorite Fall Fete event: the Wine Raffle!  Pressed for time? This is a great way to make a Fall Fete contribution. Simply drop off a bottle of wine at the school office (please respect office quiet times). Pick a personal favorite, or something that you’d like to share (or win!).  Bottle donations will be accepted from now until Friday October 12.  All donations will be assembled into cases to be raffled off at the Fete.  Last year ten lucky winners each went home with a case of assorted wines. Cheers!

If you are interested in knowing more, or want to get involved, you can email the Fall Fete Co-Chairs at fallfetehoward@gmail.com

See you at the Fete on October 13th.
