    Spaghetti Dinner 
    Friday, November 2 from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m.

    Join us for our Annual Homemade Spaghetti Dinner and Bake Sale fundraiser. 
    Donations will be accepted at the door and dessert tickets will be sold for $1.

    We are supported by the love and generosity of so many people.  Marco Scalise and Norm Goding have cooked for our spaghetti dinner for 17 years.  They spend hours preparing a homemade spaghetti dinner that benefits our school!

    We are encouraging families to bring a dessert for our bake sale. Please make sure desserts are individually portioned (i.e. – cupcakes, cookies, cut up brownies etc) and nut-free.

    We will offer face painting for the children again too.

    This event is a great opportunity to get to know other families in your child’s preschool class and for our alumni families to visit their teachers and friends.   We hope you can make it!
