    Harvest Night words and an orange moon

    Harvest Night
    Thursday, November 7th from 6pm-8pm!

    Harvest Night is a community gathering held each autumn at our school. We eat. We play. We provide an opportunity to give back. Please join us for a celebration for the whole family.

    At Harvest Night, you can support our 'upperclassmen' and skip cooking dinner! Fifth grade families will serve a Pasta Dinner and Desserts. Dinner proceeds raise money for the 5th grade trip to Camp Orkila, a trip the students look forward to all year.

    Entertainment for the evening is provided by our adorable kindergartners, who never fail to impress with their lively rendition of the chicken dance. There will be games to play and crafts to glue, plus a final chance to shop the Book Fair. You can also take part in the first HIP packing party (see more info below).

    Harvest Night needs lots of hands to be a success. Please follow our volunteer link to see where you can pitch in. Middle school alum and high schoolers looking for service hours make great helpers!
