It’s finally here! The ESA Craft Fair and Silent Auction is tomorrow from 10AM to 3PM!

Even if it’s snowing outside, it will be warm, cozy and WONDERFUL at ESA tomorrow. The halls, gym, library and cafeteria will be transformed into a celebration of local and student artisans. Bring the whole family and enjoy this annual extravaganza with your ESA community. We have received record numbers of donations this year – show tickets, sports equipment, dinners, health and beauty services and an incredible gallery of ESA student artist-created work – all up for grabs at the Silent Auction in the library. Our Silent Auction preview page features a glimpse at what is available to bid on. But this is only a fraction of what you will find at the auction. The donations are still coming in, and there is something for every budget and price point.
We sincerely hope that you will join us tomorrow, Saturday, Nov. 17th, 2018 10AM to 3PM.
Thank-you for helping us to support every arts major at ESA while getting a jump on your holiday gift shopping!

Grade 9 parents please circle your calendars – SAT. NOV. 17TH.

Grade Nine parents – please circle SAT. NOV. 17TH – (10AM to 3PM) on your calendar, and join us to celebrate artisans from ESA and the outlying community. The annual ESA Craft Fair and Silent Auction is our biggest fund-raising event of the year! It runs from 10am to 3pm on Sat. Nov. 17th and every penny raised goes to YOUR kids. Art supplies, instruments, recording/lighting equipment, competition fees…the purpose of this auction is to fill the funding gap…AND find an excuse for us to come together, celebrate art, and raise funds for this incredible school we are a part of.
Between the Silent Auction and Craft Fair, here is the chance to get most of your holiday shopping done. Grab lunch at the food fair and pick up some holiday baking while being serenaded by ESA musical artists. Check out the unique jewelry, gourmet food ideas, fashion and accessories AND an auction room filled with dinners, theatre tickets, gorgeous gift baskets and dozens of items available at well-below market value.
See you there!
