Alternatively, paper surveys are available for pick-up in four locations: outside the office, in the main hall, the bell hall and the kindergarten hall.  Stop by to pick one up, or have your child bring one home with them.

18th Annual Swansea Craft Sale

A great BIG thank you to all the volunteers who helped out at the 18th Annual Swansea Craft Sale!  We had over 850 people attend the show and we made over $6,500 for the school! The admission earned over $1,400 and this will go to the Holiday Fund to buy gift cards for parents who need a little financial assistance to buy presents.
And a HUGE thanks to all the parents, staff and community members who volunteered at the Craft Sale stations, donated baked goods or prizes, bought raffle tickets etc.

A special thank you to all the senior students that helped volunteer to deliver flyers or helped on the day of! The vendors were so impressed with the students and volunteers we keep getting emails saying that it was an amazing show and how impressed they were with our students and volunteers. Here are two examples of feedback received from vendors:

“I really enjoyed the day, especially the school spirit and lovely student volunteers
The organization was brilliant, friendly and helpful.”

“Swansea Craft Sale rocks! I’ve put it on my calendar for next year! Thank you for being so well organized and efficient. Always a pleasure to participate, and a fun, enthusiastic day!”

The 19th Annual Swansea Craft Sale is scheduled for Saturday, November 23, 2013.
