Great Gatherings

A great gathering is a great way to get to know other FSMN families, have a great time, and raise a little bit of money for the school. 

Great gatherings are events hosted by an FSMN family(ies) that bring parents, students or friends together to socialize and raise money for the school. It can be a small or large group, with or without children, and can take place just about anywhere – at home, in a park, or on a bike. They can also be service trips.

Join a great gathering or host one!

Come to my kitchen and and prepare your own ravioli! Stuff them Stuff with things your kid actually likes for some lunches, or cook them up for family dinner nights. 

I am a private chef, and mom of a Prairie student. I will provide the flour and eggs for the dough, and prepared fixings for the stuffing. You will make the dough, roll it out, and then fill to your liking! I will contact the attendees to learn what kinds of things I should be sure to have on hand, and learn about sensitivities that I should be aware of in making fixings. I can accommodate many dietary needs with the fillings, but I’m not able to accommodate the making of gluten free pastas.
