Spring Fair Baskets and Volunteers and Cake, oh my!

SPRING FAIR – Friday, June 6th, 5:30 pm

The Smith School Spring Fair is fast approaching! This super fun event takes a lot of organization and preparation and WE NEED YOUR HELP!

You should have received a packet of SPRING FAIR info this week in your child’s backpack. Please review the information and respond accordingly. Here’s a quick rundown:


1. RAFFLE BASKET DONATIONS NEEDED – Each grade is responsible for donating items for our always successful raffle baskets. Please click here to review the form (or take a peek below at the list) and send in a donation next week!

2. VOLUNTEERS NEEDED – I don’t want to say we’re desperate for help but without volunteers to work our Spring Fair stations, the event won’t be as fun and as successful. Please donate an hour of your time to help us make the night a success. Click here to view the Volunteer Form. Send it in with your child or email us and let us know how you’d like to help! Email

3. BAKERS NEEDED for the always popular CAKE WALK - Please consider donating a cake or pie or plate of cookies for our cake walk. Click here to view the flyer. Send it in with your child or email us today and pledge a cake to the Spring Fair. Email
