HARVEST FESTIVAL: October 28, 2016

WINTER FAIRE: December 3, 2016, 12 to 5 pm

This delightful celebration of the season is a wonderful school and community event. A fun family day, we offer crafts, handmade items from our talented parents and students, a vendor area with a nice selection of mostly handmade items and the Starlight Cafe for a snack. We also have musical performances and plenty of time to hang out with friends. A highlight of this event is the Children’s Store where your child can go shopping and purchase holiday gifts (often made by parents and friends) for as little as $.50. The line is always long and the anticipation great as they wait for a chance to enter this magical place that has been lovingly decorated to resemble a fairy forest (complete with fairy lights). No parents are allowed inside. Children are greeted by an adult that will help them with their shopping. This event has become an important fundraiser due to the hard work of the coordinator and volunteers in the last few years. It brings in about $10,000 towards our fundraising goals.

Our community celebrates culture in so many different ways.  The staff and parent coordinators of the Alice Birney Multicultural Festival are looking for your input. If you have ideas or contacts regarding how we can expand our festival to celebrate culture through performances, demonstrations, or other ways, please join us for a steering meeting for this year’s Multicultural Festival on Wednesday, April 2nd at 2:30pm in room 14.
