Rummage sale thank you note !
Tue, May 24 12:22am
Dear FASSV Community,
 
We wanted to share with you the pictures of the 2022 Rummage sale event, the first one since the pandemic started.
 
 
We had many families from the school visiting, but also new families interested to know more about the school and middle school. We also had a lemonade stand operated by alumni and actual FASSV students! They did so well!! Future successful business people in the making!!!
 
Beyond raising close to $2,000 dollars, we had the chance to educate ourselves and our kids on how to consume in a better way and reduce the amount of waste. In the process we created memories and relationships between people in our community. We are a tight-knit small school and that’s what makes us unique! 
 
A note from the Rummage Sale Organizers:
______
 
The rummage sale is all about: talking, meeting new friends, finding the new backpack for the back to school day, the perfect book for this summer, enjoying a homemade lemonade, letting our kids choose a new halloween outfit, or buying the next 300 or 1000 pieces puzzle …. Rummage sale was a wonderful event, thanks to you all, who donated, who came to help, who came to buy, or just came just to say hi.
