Christ­mas Crafts for Cul­ture

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

school seems to have hit on a great fundraiser for their cul­tural field trips. The school’s se­cond an­nual Christ­mas Craft Fair, held last Satur­day, at­tracted twice as many peo­ple as last year and raised al­most twice as much. “We don’t have the fi­nal to­tal in yet, but it was around $3000,” said the school’s happy prin­ci­pal, Julie Dubois. “Our cy­cle three stu­dents will be go­ing to a play in Sher­brooke and we haven’t cho­sen the other trips yet,” she added.

All of the school’s per­son­nel were work­ing at the event, as well as stu­dents, fam­ily mem­bers and forty-five ven­dors from all around Que­bec, in­clud­ing many lo­cal ar­ti­sans. Even the stu­dents got in on the act, each class mak­ing and then sell­ing Christ­mas or­na­ments and gifts, also to raise money for the out­ings.

“We got good feed­back about the event – peo­ple were very happy and found it to be a nice so­cial gath­er­ing with great at­mos­phere. I’d like to thank grade two teacher Marianne Cou­ture for or­ga­niz­ing the event,” con­cluded Ms. Dubois. Grade two teacher seen here with a lit­tle helper, or­ga­nized the suc­cess­ful fundraiser.
