Chili Clip Art 35624.jpegCALLING ALL CHILI COOKS!


Do you have a famous family chili recipe that you're proud of?! We need you!
We are calling on you the awesome chili cook to whip up a batch of your famous chili in a crock pot for our CHILI Night at Meet the teacher night next week Thursday Oct 12th.

We plan to serve vegetarian and meat options so if either are in your comfort zone we'd love to hear from you.
Ideally the chili will be prepared and dropped off between 4:30 – 5pm on Thurs., Oct. 12th, the night of our event. You can prepare in a slow cooker / crock pot and drop it off in its pot! We will plug it in and keep it warm.

ALLERGY INFO: Some allergies to be aware of are the usual nuts etc but also no pumpkins, pumpkin seeds, zucchini or anything from the squash family as contact (and airborne contact) will cause a severe reaction by one of our family members.

SERVING HELP: We also need approximately 20 hands on deck for various jobs throughout the event from 4pm – 6:45pm. Please email us if you can help even if only for 30 mins that evening. Your support in ensuring no one misses meeting their teachers is essential in making this evening a huge success!

We'd love to hear from you, please click here to volunteer.

After each concert, we will clear the gymnasium, and invite the next group in.
