Please visit our Volunteer Sign-up Sheet
. We hope a school-wide volunteer sheet will allow volunteers to better align their skill-sets with a preferred activity and make it easier for families with siblings to better manage their volunteer commitments. We realize we have many volunteer shifts! Please consider signing up for more than one shift. We encourage older grade school students to volunteer as well. Many of our students are expert jump rope makers, face painters, etc...
If we do not feel an activity is adequately staffed with volunteers by the morning of Wednesday, October 18, we will cancel that activity. Materials for these activities are being organized in advance. If you are uncertain about what will be required for a particular activity, please call 203-364-1113 x103.
Pocketman is among the most popular parts of our annual Fall Fair—he always sells out! Following our usual custom, we will ask each family to
contribute 7-10 pocket-sized (small!) items that will be used to fill Pocketman’s pockets at the Fall Fair. These items should be inspired by nature, and can be hand-made (felted wool balls or critters, acorn babies, leaf fairies) or bought (polished stones, sea shells, crystals, etc…) Please keep in mind that Pocketman items sell for $1 ea. Watch
your school mail folder for an envelope. OR join Natasha De Castro on Thursday mornings in the Star Meadow early childhood building for a weekly Handwork Group. For the months of September and October the Handwork Group will focus on crafting items for Pocketman.
need bakers! If you are able, please plan to bake and bring a baked
item to sell in the food area—cookies, brownies, etc… Please bring “grab
and go” items that you have already individually wrapped (items to be
sold for $1) OR items that could be individually wrapped. Please do not
send anything that requires refrigeration. Items can be dropped off at the Admin. Cottage on Friday the 20th or on Saturday morning.
