Exploris Craft Fair during Family Day! If you’ve been around Exploris for a while, you may remember the Exploris Craft Fair that used to be held in November on the day of the Raleigh Christmas Parade. This was an opportunity for Exploris vendors to sell artwork and craft items, as well as a chance for Exploris students to raise money for Outward Bound or other passion projects. We are going to have a Craft Fair during the Spring Festival this year!
Vendors: Exploris families who would like to set up a booth to sell their products can do so for $20, which will be donated to the Exploris Food Pantry.
Student Groups: Students can sell items to raise money for passion projects such as non-profits and charities. Each student group must have a parent sponsor. You will have space to set up your own tent and products.
Look for more information and a craft fair signup form to be included in next week’s Monday Minute.

We are looking for parents/grandparents/caregivers to come and cover a lunch/recess session at the school. This is on Tuesdays and Thursdays right now, please see the signup below to participate!
