What a wonderful evening it was – lots of smiling children and parents, a gorgeously decorated gym filled with amazing raffle baskets and beautiful crafts handmade by our students, delicious baked goods, Santa on the stage and wonderful live piano music. Not to mention the delicious dinner served in Frosty’s Diner and the crêpes with chocolate sauce – very yummy! The craft rooms were filled with busy children making some fun crafts and the reading room in the library was packed when our very own Mr. Gruat performed the story-telling. All in all, a very fun event and there was something for everyone.

And to top it off, we made an astonishing $8,700!!!  We believe this is a record number and we can all be very proud of ourselves in being part of such an amazing community event. The Christmas Craft Fair is one of our major fundraisers for the Ross Road community and all proceeds will go to make the school a better place for all of our kids!  Part of the money will be spent on new computer purchases and the rest will go into our general fund.

Congratulations to all the lucky raffle basket winners! A complete list of who won what is on display in the lobby, or click here to check it out online.

THANK YOU everyone for helping put together the amazing raffle baskets, volunteering with your time and talents, buying tickets, and of course, attending this fantastic event. We couldn’t have done it without you. Your competence, your flexibility and your good cheer made the Fair the success it was!
