Hello, Sunnyside parents! In our final 3 weeks of school before WINTER BREAK, we have one final FUNdraiser (Winter Craft Fair!), one special school event (Riparian Festival!) and one more PTSA meeting (December 9th!) where we’ll dig into all the goodness 2023 has in store for us as a community!

Volunteer Opportunities & Special Events! ????????????

❄❄❄ WINTER CRAFT FAIR – THIS FRIDAY at 3:30pm! ❄❄❄

To the many parents who have jumped into volunteer for the Winter Craft Fair – thank you! We could still use more PARENT AND STUDENT VOLUNTEERS to make the event a huge success for our talented student makers! Most of all we need BAKED GOODS! Not only do we want to make sure that everyone that comes to shop at the Winter Craft Fair gets a delicious treat, but the bake sale is also a key part of our fundraising! If you can drop off a plate of cookies, brownies, cupcakes, or any special treat that can be passed off individually, please add your name to this list and drop it off in the office any time on Friday! SIGN UP HERE!!!

Please also JOIN US! There will be 25 student makers selling everything from beaded bracelets, to knit potholders, ornaments, original art, earrings and so much more! There will also be 10 amazing adult crafters selling bath salts, bike gear, tote bags, upcycled earrings and so much more! There will also be hot cocoa, baked goodies, a hygge corner, crafts, a raffle and the Students of Color will be selling their merch! Come enjoy and support! And please tell your friends and neighbors!

The Winter Craft Fair will be in the auditorium starting at 3:30pm and we will close around 6:30pm!
