Annual Family School Traditions

Our major community events (all long-standing Family School traditions) include the following:

  • Fall Square Dance

    An old-fashioned community square dance with a professional caller, treats, and fun galore—a great way to welcome fall and celebrate the start of the school year
  • Used Book Sale

    Our “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” school fundraiser, where we resell books for all ages, along with DVDs, games, and educational toys
  • Art and Poetry Night

    Our beautiful “Open House” evening celebrates weeks-long work in the classrooms.  Teachers and parent volunteers transform classrooms into art galleries displaying amazing student talent.  Fundraising is accomplished through art/poetry auctions and baked goods/hot beverage sales.
  • Spring Auction

    A spring social and fundraising event, which usually includes a silent and live auction
  • Inquiry Fair Hospitality Day

    A new tradition! Come have a treat while you cart boards, charts, rocks, fish, catapults, etc. into the classroom.
