2017 WSA Holiday Fair

WSA hosted another fabulous Holiday Fair!
 

It was a brisk, sunny, and perfectly autumn-like morning when we welcomed hundreds of families to our 30th annual Holiday Fair. It could never have happened without the hours and hours of time dedicated by our parents, volunteer leaders, staff, and faculty to create such a wondrous and magical day.

Thank you to every Class Holiday Fair rep that held the organization, preparation and execution for all of the Fair's activities. Thank you to the Holiday Fair Leadership Team who spent countless hours creating the structure for the Fair and supporting all of our parent volunteers. The Fair involves a tremendous amount of outreach and marketing efforts as well, including distribution of posters, yard signs, solicitation of donations from community businesses, radio ads on NPR and articles in local community publications. Thank you to Lisa Roggow with Grade 8 and faculty support for creating the Forest Shop, which was overflowing with beautiful items for sale. Thanks also to our amazingly talented Early Childhood faculty that performed another exquisite puppet show of “Dawn-Strider”.

  • We sold nearly 450 Puppet Show tickets
