* This craft group used to be held on different days of the week.
- It was “Wednesday Morning Craft Group” because in the 2012-2013 school year we met on Wednesday mornings.
- As for the 2013-2014 and 2015-2016 school years, we met on Tuesday mornings and the group was called “Tuesday Morning Craft Group”. Sorry for the confusion!
– Cheers! Jzin

Calling crafty Elves – we need help for Winter Festival Elves’ Workshop! Our wonderful Ms. Christine has lots of super fun craft kits available for you to take home and work on – you can find them at The Company of Angels. The finished creations will be sold in our Elves’ Workshop at Winter Festival. Her goal is 1,000 creations and she currently has about 200. There are lots of great options from painting and clay to sewing, gluing and felt. A sample is included with each packet, and you don’t have to be an expert crafter to participate.
- Packets are due back by December 2, 2016 at the very latest. If for some reason you are unable to finish your kit, please bring it back by mid-November so it can be given to another crafter to complete. Also, if you need help or extra supplies, just catch up with Christine on Monday mornings outside Company of Angels
