A Great Night!
Dear Parents and Students,
Wow - what a night! The Silent Auction and Dinner on October 17th was a resounding success. The food was yummy, the magician magical, and the auction items were fantastic! Numbers aren't in yet but the Parent Committee have smiles on their faces. As well as a big sigh of relief as the one and only fundraiser is over for the entire year! The organization, work, and overwhelming donation of time by those who put on this event and the use of Buffet Royale by the Werenka family is - well - truly amazing. We are blessed to have such a caring and dedicated group of parents in our school community!
As numbers are made available the Ministik Parent Council will update us.
Part of the money used from this fundraiser is to have Artists in Residence like Renee Englot come to our school to work one on one with our students. Thursday, October 23rd the Kindergarten students will be presenting to their parents they work they have been doing. On Friday, grades 2-6 will providing a presentation to their parents starting in period 7.
Charlene Folkinga will be back doing art classes with the students and AB Opera will be coming to the school to present Rumpleskilskin with the aid of some of our students! Some of the many enhanced learning opportunities this one night of community togetherness and generosity brings to our students.
