Pot Luck Dinner

Bring your favorite dish and share a fun night with friends! 

This event kicks off Catholic Schools Week each year and is focused on bringing all SFA families together following our opening liturgy for a large pot luck dinner. A sign up will be sent to each family, requesting you to provide the number of people from your family attending and what dish you will be provided for the potluck event that evening. There is a large array of food for all to enjoy that evening with our 8th graders serving as “staff” during the event. To cap off the night, students from each grade are invited to participate in the lip synch contest. Students prepare for this with several of our teachers for the week leading up to the event. It is always a great night for all.

Trunk or Treat

Last year was the 1st year we welcomed this event to SFA. Due to weather conditions we were forced to have this event in our gym. By chance and thanks to the weather, it was an extreme successful indoor event and the feedback we received was positive to keep this an indoor event. We plan to do the same thing this year. This will be held on Sunday, October 28, 2018. Ticket sales will begin approximately 4 weeks prior and will be available up to the week of the event. All tickets include entrance to the event as well as a Halloween bag for goodies. Last year we had approximately 25 "trunks" for our trunk or treaters and look to meet or exceed that this year. Our event had some incredibly creative trunks (tables) decorated and provided some awesome candy for all who attended. Firehouse donuts and water are provided for all attendees. Be on the lookout for Ticket ordering in early October!
