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!
