Mark your calendars! It’s the annual
ROSS ROAD CHRISTMAS MARKET
Friday December 6th, 5pm to 8pm
Our Christmas event has always been about supporting our school, our children and each other, as well as a great chance to get our community together. Although we’ve added some new ideas and a new name this year, the heart and spirit of the event remain the same.
Our Christmas traditions continue with;
- The fantastic crafts made by our own students
- The famous class basket raffles
- Live music and sing-a-long with Ross Road parent and entertainer Michael Wong
- Photos with Santa
- Craft Workshops for kids
- CD recording with Creativ Music
- Mystery Bags
- Delicious Dinner with Roast Beef on a bun and Pizza and veggies
- Bake Sale
- Drinks and Snacks
- Coat Room
And there are some exciting new activities;
- Holiday Shop and Wrap room
- Neon Christmas Party Room
- Outdoor café
- Snowflake Spa
- Silent Auction
- Free Cookie Decorating
Here’s where we need your help;
New to this year’s event is the “Holiday Shop and Wrap Market.” It will be a room where your children can come in on their own (with our volunteers to help them) to shop for reasonably priced gifts. We will also help them wrap their gifts for their family. All items will be kept to $5 or less. Our children will get a chance to buy some items on their own and have them wrapped to put under the tree for Christmas morning.
From our parents, we are asking that you take a look around your home for small treasures that you could up-cycle to us for this event. These are new items such as that gift you bought for someone and forgot you had it, or the picture frame you loved and bought, but never found the right wall to hang it on, or Christmas decorations that you had bought on sale and but they have never made it to the mantle! There is no need to buy anything, it’s just a chance for you to pass on treasures that you have never had the chance to use. The children will have a chance to buy a gift on their own in a safe environment at a reasonable price while raising money for their school.
Please consider taking a look at home and bringing in any donations you may find. There will be a collection box set up starting November 8 in the AV room under the “down” stairs in the lobby right across from the office. We will put a sign on the door so it is easy to locate!
Ordering is now open for dinner at the Christmas Market;
Please log onto the Munch a Lunch website (www.munchalunch.com) and click on the Fundraising Open icon to access your meal options. The delicious beef on a bun (served with quinoa salad and veggies) is back by popular demand. And pizza this year is being supplied by Flying Wedge! There will only be very limited pizza for sale on the night, and no extra beef on a bun, so please make sure you order ahead online.
Ordering will remain open until Wednesday, November 20 at 5pm. Payment must also be received by this time or your order will be canceled. Please pay by credit card/Paypal online at the time of ordering if possible. If not, please place a cheque made out to Ross Road PAC in the PAC box located in the school lobby under the “down” stairs by November 18. If you need help, or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Wendy Ross at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will be more details to follow in the coming weeks.
