Our heartfelt gratitude to all of our wonderful community for making the Winter Faire such a success.
This year,we brought the Winter Faire back indoors in our beautiful Victorian building which made for a more intimate event. Everyone expressed how it felt happy and sweet and true. Patrons enjoyed the scrumptious offerings from the Snowflake Cafe, the 8th grade Grill and 3rd grade roasted chestnuts and apple cider donuts, gathering at the long cloister style dining tables in Jaeckel Hall, while serenaded by a steady schedule of quality music by the 8th grade string quartet, Rachel Loshak’s Kingston SIngers and Stacey Rosen on the piano. The 6th Grade Tiny Treasures Room was magical, with a long line of customers patiently waiting their turn and clutching their tickets to purchase a handmade treasure, crafted by diligent parents and staff. The serene and peaceful Candle Dipping Room saw a steady stream of customers, quietly and patiently building layers of sweet smelling hot beeswax. The early childhood teachers transformed the kindergarten and prepared dear craft activities staffed by Nursery and Kindergarten parents, who helped little hands make popcorn and cranberry garlands, felted wool mittens, candle holders and pomanders to take home. 7th grade parents and students mastered the intricate fashioning of translucent stars that are now gracing the windows of many a home. Our student vendors sold out of their unique crafted items and outside vendors expressed how they enjoyed the general happy mood of the Faire and the friendliness of our community.
Much of the event is parent run and we wish to thank you all for taking time out of your busy schedules to join together and make the event possible.
