What is International Potluck and Festival (a.k.a., Winterfest)?
This is a lovely community event where everyone brings dishes from all over the world! We also hope to have cultural craft tables organized by each grade, activities, and raffle off some great prizes, all while enjoying a diverse array of great foods. There will be a few booths and activities that may require a small fee to help raise funds for grade-band graduation and moving up ceremonies.
Admission and food at the event will be FREE to Q300 students, their families, teachers and staff, but pre-registration will be required, as capacity is limited. Registration details will go out soon. As a reminder, all adults will need to show proof of vaccination to enter the building.
Call for online auction items
We’re launching an online auction at Winterfest that will feature summer camp prizes. We are soliciting donations from summer camps such as gift certificates or discount coupons. This will be a great publicity opportunity for the camps. Please reach out to summer camps that you know and ask them to participate in our auction. It’s especially helpful to have a parent reach out to a camp their child has gone to in the past or will go to in the future.
Please use this sample email to send to potential donors (https://bit.ly/3HSpFHI ) – copy and edit it to make it your own. You can also include this formal letter for donors (https://bit.ly/3BQwiX1 ).Donations should be secured by Wednesday, January 25, 2023 for the Winterfest. The auction will run online from Friday, February 3, 2023 until Monday, February 13, 2023.
