The Fall Faire is coming soon!

The Fall Faire will be held on Saturday, October 13 from 11 am to 2 pm. This is a wonderfully fun time for all Birchtree families. We do still need help in a few areas. Please check with your lead parent to see how you can help with your child’s grade activity.

We also need lots of yummy goodies for the Bake Sale. Bring your baked goods in Friday, October 12 or Saturday before the Faire begins.

Finally, we need some seasonal decorations. This year, pumpkins will be the centerpiece. Please decorate a pumpkin to add to the decorations. Be creative!
