Annual May Faire Celebration

Friday, May 6th, 1:30-5pm, SWSF campus

CRAFT DISPLAY! Since we had to cancel Festival of the Arts we are planning on displaying 1st-12th grade artwork in front of Sophia Hall during May Faire.  Please come by before the May Pole dancing or during the Faire to see this amazing collection of our student’s hand work and art!  If there is rain, the display will be canceled to protect the students work.

FLOWERS NEEDED from every family – please bring small blossoms for garlands and large ones for decorating to school that morning. Can be store bought or picked from your garden!  Bring to classroom, Main Office, or upper & lower drop off spots.

WEAR WHITE or light pastel clothing, especially students. There will be a water activity (dump bucket), so bring extra clothes for your child if you wish.

BRING plates, cups and utensils for eating (don’t forget a bowl for Strawberry Shortcake!), cash for food & entrance and blankets for seating.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! PLEASE SIGN-UP to help with your Class activity and/or on the Main Office door for general Faire help, or online at Volunteerspot- http://vols.pt/oZErEJ
