Fête Feast

Plan a lunch on the Front Lawn. There are several menus from which to choose a delicious meal for all family tastes!

Enjoy the sensational international cuisine of Planet Maret, including entrees and salads from all over the world, donated by Cactus Cantina and Lebanese Taverna. Sample the barbeque of the Outdoor Grill, with grilled hamburgers and hotdogs donated by Ridgewells. Indulge in the delectable baguette sandwiches, and crepes of the French Café, all inspired by the school’s French heritage. And with the help of our very own Maret Grandparents, we will be selling pizza by the slice from &pizza.

Finds

Fête Market, Used Books, and CDs

You will find an enormous range of inexpensive hardback, paperback, popular, and hard-to-find books, as well as CDs and DVDs. And don't miss the Fête Market for fun finds of gently used accessories, sporting equipment, household items, toys, and other fun goodies.

The Maret Market Place

The Lily Pad. Maret’s school store will set up shop in its usual place in front of Woodley and offer a selection of Maret clothing items and accessories. Additional new styles of Maret apparel will be available.

Vendors This year we are looking for vendors within the Maret community to sell their wares at the Fête. We would like to encourage any students, parents, and/or alumni to sell their artistic creations, including jewelry, paper goods, clothing, toys, etc. We will provide the table and chair - you provide the merchandise.

Fun and Games

As in years past, young Fête-goers will enjoy the fun and games.

Returning this year are Maret’s favorite games, including the Bean Bag Toss, Baseball Throw, Soccer Shot, Lollipop Tree, Hole in One, Bowling, Hockey Shot, Mystery Box, and of course, the Cake Jam, where your children will rock to music and end up with perfect treats – creatively decorated cakes of their choosing made by our own Maret families!

Super Chance will be back and filled with toys, prizes and candy. Depending on your luck, you will walk away with any number of treats.

Volunteer Opportunites

There’s no better salve for the winter blues than planning for this wonderful spring happening. The Maret Fête Champêtre is a school-wide event that will take place on the front lawn from 11:00am to 3:00pm on Saturday, May 20, 2017. The Fête is one of Maret’s oldest and most cherished traditions full of great food, entertainment, and games for kids and adults alike.

Last year’s Fête was a fabulous success, thanks to the terrific parent volunteer support and class leadership on the booths. Once again, each grade will manage a Fête booth or activity. The class representatives will take lead responsibility for planning and organizing their respective grades’ activity. The Fête is a fun-for-all-ages, community-building event. Your class representatives will actively recruit parent volunteers from the class to help with all phases of planning and “day of” staffing needs. Thank you all for helping to throw one great party!

The 2017 activity assignments are as follows:

  • Kindergarten - Bake Sale
  • 1st Grade - Cake Jam
  • 2nd Grade - Super Chance
  • 3rd Grade - Fête Market/Used Books/CDs
  • 4th Grade - Fête Market/Used Books/CDs

In addition to the customary and much loved booths such as Planet Maret, French Café, and Cake Walk, there will be new activities, food, and entertainment. We hope the whole Maret community will mark their calendars for this fun-filled event.

We’re looking forward to a great spring event!

Come with friends and family to celebrate the pleasure of spring at Maret’s 64th Annual Fête Champêtre, Saturday, May 20, 2017, from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. This is a "rain or shine" event.
