Schools are closed on Monday, October 3rd. Enjoy the long fall weekend, Westowne.
Auction and Raffle Donations Needed
Our annual Fall Festival is Saturday, October 29th from 3:00 - 6:00. Please support this event with items for the silent auction and basket raffle.
In previous years, it has worked well for families or groups of teachers to collaborate to create grade level baskets. Families can sponsor entire baskets on their own, too. Basket themes can be anything family or child-friendly. Suggestions include Minecraft, My Little Pony, Movie Night, Spaghetti Night, Tea & Cookies, Manicures & Pedicures, etc. Items should be new or in like new condition.
Fall Fest also provides an excellent opportunity to promote your business. Consultants for companies may make a donation and share their catalogs or business cards at the event. We would like to feature services provided by Westowne parents and friends, too, ranging from massages to house cleaning. We would also like to include certificates for breakfast or lunch with faculty and staff members for the students.
There are so many options! Please email with questions and ideas. Thank you!
