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!

A New Great Gathering! Introducing Sunday Suppers

Please join us in company with friends and kids for a soup supper at Noelle and Kevin’s house (parents of Everett in Mississippi). The last Sunday of the Month through April, Noelle will cook up some hearty soups with gluten free and vegetarian options. Mac and Cheese will be prepared for the kids along with roasted broccoli and cauliflower and apple slices. Since Noelle is a chef, there may also be some other fun surprises for eating! Bring a beverage for you or to share, and join us for some winter down time togetherness. 

Great Gatherings are also a great opportunity to introduce your friends and neighbors who may be interested in joining the school to our community. With the enrollment deadline approaching, its a good time to meet people and hear first hand about our school!
