Wintermarkt German Holiday Market- December 4th
Sunday December 4th from 12:00pm to 3:00pm. Traditional Foods, Crafts, Music and Games.
This is our first time to introduce to you a German Holiday Market. We are seeking for parents who might be
able to assist us with the planning and support.
The general idea of a German Holiday Market is to enjoy a nice atmosphere in preparation for the holidays.
To give you a better idea, traditional Holiday market items are: small holiday gifts, crafts, handmade items,
jewelry, small art, wooden art, scarves, handmade candles, handcrafted natural products, crafted toys for the
kids, baby items, stockings,
any kind of handmade tree ornaments and holiday accessories.
Vendors can register for a gazebo space (1,2 or 3 tables @ 6ft) or if it's a parent they can also share a 6ft
table with another parent/family. For more information please email to:
For the “Wintermarkt” German Holiday Market, we will set up 10 gazebos for commercial and parent vendors.
The GCC – (German Cultural Committee) will be the only ones offering food and drinks for consumption.
What do we need from you?
We are still in the process of seeking commercial vendors. Maybe you might know people that have
their own business or produce artwork or craft items that would fit to our holiday theme. Or you know a
store in your neighborhood that we could approach with our holiday market idea. Please send us your
suggestions or connect us to some of the great local vendors in the area. We have registration forms that
we can send out to your vendors.
You can do more…
If you are crafty we will have several craft tables set up, where children can pay a small fee and make a
holiday craft to take home. You could volunteer, help us with purchasing supplies or you could even have your
own selling table at the market.
The GCC is asking for baked goods donation
If you have an amazing holiday cookie recipe, ginger bread or such that you could donate, we can provide you
with cookie bags.
Frau Claudia will be at the market singing several traditional German Holiday songs. If you, your child or
a family member is interested to perform a Holiday song or dance, we would like to hear from you at
All proceeds benefit our AEA German Language program. We greatly appreciate your support to create this
wonderful holiday market. The GCC Team.

Gala Artisan Committee
Every year Friends of AEA hosts a Gala to raise funds for our amazing
school. This event makes up a significant amount of the budget that
brings and maintains valued programs and classes to our school such as
art, music, PE, science, gardening, among others. A school curriculum that
includes experiences like these enriches our students' education and
Part of the fundraising effort includes each class in each grade level
to contribute student made artwork. This artwork is made in collaboration
with parent volunteer(s), classroom teachers, and students.
This year I am available to consult, coordinate, oversee, and possibly
assist the making of these projects. I need 3-5 parents, FROM EACH GRADE LEVEL
to volunteer as lead coordinators for their grade level. We will collaborate
and work together to create a cohesive, yet diverse group of works for the Gala
You DO NOT need to be an artist to volunteer. People who embrace
organization, enthusiasm and the ability to delegate are great leads for
this project as well!

Our first meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 9 from 12:30-1:30pm
in the Art Room. Please come to the meeting even if you are unsure if you want
to fully commit!
