Multicultural Fair Coming Soon

Ridgeway’s second Multicultural Fair is coming soon, celebrating our amazing cultural diversity!

Due to the popularity of this event, we’re making it bigger by shifting to the gym, including:

  • ‘Country’ or regional displays created by individual or groups of families / students (we will help coordinate)
  • Displays ideas include photos, facts, books, toys,  crafts, or bite-size tastes of a regional snack or treat
  • A craft area
  • Beverage sale by the Grade 7s: coffee, juice, carbonated water
  • Sign up to contribute to a table HERE

The Multicultural Fair is held on the evening or our Scholastic Book Fair and is a part of our annual PAC Family Fun Night. You can sign up to help at the book fair HERE.

…. and YES, there’s still a cupcake walk!

What is the cupcake walk?
A cupcake walk is like musical chairs: kids walk around a numbered circle – when the music stops, we draw a winner! The winner gets a plate of cupcakes. All for free! We will need cupcake bakers and volunteers – sign up here.

  • The purchaser should fill out their name and phone number on all the tickets they buy. The student KEEPS the portion of the ticket with name and phone number (to return to the classroom), and GIVES the purchaser the tear-off portion of the ticket.
  • BC Gaming regulations require that tickets be sold by and to an adult (age 19 years or older)
  • If your family has sold all their tickets and wishes to sell additional tickets, please email president”at”ridgewaypac.org, and include your child’s name and class. If available, additional tickets will be delivered to your child’s class.
