One of a kind jewelry, hats, and bags will be available as well as gift items, beauty products, and kitchenwares.  For a complete list of vendors check out the Facebook event.

Interested in becoming a vendor?  Rent a table for $25 and keep 100% of your sales. Rental fees will go towards the “All the Gym’s a Stage” makeover campaign.

Please email Maritza Rodriguez at mnieves76@yahoo.com to reserve a table.

Rental fees can be paid in cash or by check made out to “Friends of Goethe School,” or via Paypal, below.  When paying by paypal, just put "holiday fair" in the "special instructions" line.


"All the Gym's a Stage" Gym Makeover Campaign

Art, music, drama are crucial to children's growth and well-being. For many, they are the lifelines that nurture unique talents, build confidence, and promote positive feelings about school.

Goethe's incredible teachers equip and motivate our children to excel in the performing arts. Help us equip our gymnasium so we have a stage worthy of their efforts!

We are asking parents, alumni, neighbors, and local businesses to donate to "All the Gym's a stage" campaign. An anonymous donor has provided funds to match contributions 3 to 1. That means a $10 donation turns into $40 for the gym.



New Spanish Class Schedule

Next semester's Spanish class schedule has been adjusted to accommodate Primary Colors and Karate. Unfortunately, the older kids will still have class on Thursdays because of limited teacher availability this late in the year.

Here is the new schedule:

*PreK to 1st grade - Mondays and Wednesdays

*2nd to 3rd grade - Wednesdays and Thursdays

If you have any questions, please contact Carla Viteri of Instituto Cervantes at cervanteskids@cervantes.org or Goethe parent Amanda Yarusso at amanda.yarusso@gmail.com.
