WHAT IS GREAT GATHERINGS?
On Saturday, October 19, 2019, the Juana Briones PTA will host the annual Juana Briones Harvest Festival & Great Gatherings!
Great Gatherings are community-building activities donated and hosted by Juana Briones PTA and Briones parents, which take place throughout the year. They are sold at a cost per attendee/family, on a first-come-first-serve basis. Sometimes spaces are limited. Activities can be for a family, child, or adults only, etc.
When you pay to participate in a Great Gathering, your money is donated directly to the Briones PTA. In fact, Great Gatherings is the largest PTA fundraiser of the school year! Last year, funds raised went to help pay for classroom supplies, library books, musical instruments, fulfilling teacher wish lists, supporting enrichment programs, and more.
You’ll receive a brochure of Great Gatherings events, so you can review and take note of your favorites!
Remember, attend the Harvest Festival on October 19th and:
- sign up for Great Gatherings, which are sold at a cost per attendee/family, on a first-come-first-serve basis (sometimes spaces are limited); and
- bid on the Silent Auction items ranging from Gift Certificates, Gadgets, Camps, Passport Dinners, etc. Top bidders win!
We need volunteers to make this event a success! It cannot run without everyone’s helping hands, and it’s a fun opportunity to connect with your school community. (As the event gets closer, we’ll post a sign-up form.)
