Parents, Grandparents, and Caregivers,
The BCSIS Winter Festival is a wonderful time to celebrate our school, our community, our friends, good food, special talent, and the change of season. The Winter Festival also serves as a major fundraiser for our extraordinary school.
We have a committed team of parents working hard to create a magical event. Every one of you can participate – please be watching for Winter Festival Sign up forms later this week!
This year we are expanding our “cash and carry” Community Market! We will be accepting any and all donations to sell at a fixed price. We welcome anything from handmade crafts, to original works of art, to products or services offered by your own business or those you frequent in the greater community. Gift certificates to local restaurants, shops and services are also encouraged! 100% of proceeds benefit BCSIS!
Please help us gather items to sell at our market:
Get creative! We would love to have your own or your children’s handmade items! Now is the time to dust off the paint, go through your yarn stash for your crocheting or knitting crafts, stock up on Ball Jars for your creative projects, gather your jewelry making supplies, etc.
Don’t be afraid to ask! We are excited to also be accepting donations from outside the school community. Consider asking around your neighborhood for donations of gift certificates or goods from places you frequently shop or visit like your hair salon, your dog groomer, favorite coffee shop, grocery store, or favorite restaurants.
Use your connections! If you or someone you know works for a local business that can donate donate goods, enlist their help. In the past, items like gift baskets and craft beer have sold really well.
Every donation makes a difference. Please find a printable donation forms at www.friendsofbcsis.org/wp-content/uploads/WF-2015-Donation-Form.pdf (or hard copies are available in the basket on Kael’s desk).You can also leave your donations in the front office with Kael.
