Bring joy to your family and others in our community by participating in a variety of seasonal activities throughout December:
Christmas Boxes: Pre-purchase; pick up Wednesday, December 16 @ 1-5pm
Back by popular demand, but with a holiday flair, these boxes contain treats and crafts for your family. Each box is $20 and contains a mason jar with cookie mix and cookie cutter, Christmas poem, ornament craft and hot cocoa mix. Boxes must be purchased in advance. They will be super cute! And Santa will be passing them out. We will set up a station where Santa can safely take pictures. Santa will help distribute boxes during the materials exchange on Wednesday, December 16th from 1-5 pm. Purchase boxes by Monday, Dec, 14th. https://forms.gle/8irAFvG7TLGB6qqn6

Holiday Spirit Tasting – Whiskey World Tour: Friday, December 11 @ 8pm
Since most families are likely to be going nowhere for the holidays, why not travel around the world with a “blind” whiskey tasting? All Saints parent Gregor McWee will host 25 whiskey-loving lads and lasses with support from Amelia Albright, Cecily Barron and Myles Faulkner on Friday, December 11 from 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm. Cost is $50 for five 1.5 oz drams. One set can easily be shared by two but it will be an “angel’s” share. It will be a great way to keep your spirits up this holiday season and part of proceeds support All Saints. You will receive an email regarding payment and logistics once you sign up to the link below. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0E49A4A62AA6FA7-holiday
Holiday Sing-A-Long: Thursday, December 17 @ 7pm
Ms. Robin will host a very merry group Zoom sing-a-long on Thursday, December 17th from 7:00-7:45pm. Everyone is welcome! And if you are worried about your singing, you can just mute yourself. But with so many people tuning in, no one will know who is singing off key!
Holly Jolly Parade: Friday, December 18 @ 1:30-3pm
Join All Saints teachers and staff for a fun reverse parade on Friday, December 18th from 1:30-3:00pm. Families are encouraged to drive by and wave hello to the festively-attired revelers. The school will be alphabetically divided into three 30 minute groups, similar to the Halloween Parade.
Community Engagement: Throughout December
If you are interested in helping others during this holiday season, here is some information on the organizations we support through All Saints’ Community Outreach:
