(Photos from last year's International Night)

International Night will be held on Thursday, October 26th at 6:00pm. We start the evening with a short gathering in the gym to welcome families. For International Night, each class researches a country and learns about it’s history, culture, environment, etc. During the International Night festivities, students will be given a chance to share what they have learned with their friends and family. Each classroom will share their projects and provide samples of food from their specific country. Homeroom Parents are asked to help teachers coordinate with parents to make food and serve it. Students are also welcome to dress in the customary clothes of their country. Students typically are required to stay in their classrooms for the beginning of the night to present their work to parents and then they can go visit other “countries”. Please join us for this special school event.

Lil’ Vermonters Consignment Sale Fundraiser

posted Sep 25, 2017, 6:27 AM by Becky Wetzel

We are very excited to announce that we have a new fundraising opportunity, that has been presented to us by Michelle Marchand, owner of Lil’ Vermonters Consignment Sale and brand new St. Francis parent!

There are two opportunities to raise money at the upcoming October sale. We will be able to sell gently used clothing (newborn to Youth size 14 and maternity), shoes, toys, games, DVDs, furniture, diaper bags, baby gear, books (children’s and parenting), etc., with all profits going directly to the school and we will be hosting a bake sale right at the event. We are looking for items to sell and volunteers.

All of the items need to be in good working condition, and if they require batteries, please include batteries. Car seats cannot be sold at this event. The clothing must be free of stains and rips. There will be a bin to donate the items in the lobby, which will be emptied every few days. Please have your items in the bin by 2pm on Fridays so we don’t have anything out in the hallways during the weekend. The final day to donate is October 3rd.

We will need volunteers to help sort and tag the items on the evening of October 3rd, people to work at the sale and man the bake sale table from October 13th-14th , and last, but certainly not least, we will need some fabulous bakers to make food for the bake sale. Please go to sign-up genius to become a tagger, an event worker, or a baker: www.SignUpGenius.com/go/5080944A8A723ABF94-lil.

If you have any questions, please contact Rebecca Brynga (rbrynga@saintmikesalum.com) or Colleen Moore (ctmccormick@gmail.com).
