Christmas Crafts for Culture
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.
