Winter Faire- Call For Vendors

We are now looking for vendors for this year’s Winter Faire on Saturday, December 3. We seek vendors that sell items or provide services utilizing natural materials such as wool, cotton, wood, beeswax, etc. Vendor fees are $25 per booth. Please note that these booths are separate from *class booths.* The vendor interest form can be found here

Please be on the lookout for more information about Winter Faire from your class representative(s). This is a parent-run event! The more involvement we have, the more magical it will be for our community.

Sending gratitude to Class Marigold parent and Director of Stewardship for the Olmstead Parks Conservancy, Matt Spalding for the gracious donations of time, machinery and natural materials to expand our natural playground area. The children are already wearing it in with engaging imaginative and gross motor play!

Local and beloved natural food market, Rainbow Blossom, donated 2 cases of locally grown apples to Early Childhood's Festival of Courage/Grandparents and Special Friends day! A great big THANK YOU is order for their generosity to our community.

Early Childhood to Celebrate Dia de Los Muertos

Our next Early Childhood festival will be in school and will be a quiet offering. The children will create a Dia de Los Muertos table with pictures and offerings to those in their lives who have passed. Last year, I was incredibly proud and touched by the children’s reverence, respect and curiosity about those who have passed. They were eager to share their pictures and stories. 

For the table we will need pictures of loved ones, pets included, who have passed. Please do not bring irreplaceable pictures. Offerings in the form of pumpkins, fruit, flowers (marigolds are traditional) and other items gleaned from nature will also be needed for the table. There will not be a sign up list just bring and give as you are inspired. We will create the table on Thursday 11/3 and Friday 11/4.
