It’s I-Fest time and we need your help!

Frostwood’s International Festival is a wonderful tradition. We decorate the school, provide some social studies enhancements, have a Parade to celebrate the range of cultures kids at Frostwood and come together for a great evening of food and entertainment with something for everyone, even picky eaters.

But I-Fest is only possible with many volunteers each helping with one or more small jobs. And, volunteering for I-Fest is a great way to get to meet some other parents as well.

SignUpGenius lists some ways to get involved and help with this great Frostwood tradition!  Come to help one time or come to all. Please sign up if you can so that we can be sure we’ll have enough volunteers each day — but even if you didn’t sign up, just show up and bring your friends too – it is always the more, the merrier (and the faster to finish)!

Be an ESL Mentor


BE an ESL Mentor!

Did you know that there are more than 120 students at FWE who speak English as a second language? This can make it challenging to keep up in the classroom and even make friends on the playground.

We are starting a new program to link some of these children with their own adult mentor for weekly language sessions. It will be a fun reading and writing program and allows these students to improve their communication skills at their own pace.

We would love some parents to make a commitment to this program for the rest of the school year. Sessions will be in the library every Thursday morning at 8:00 am to 9:00 am and there are no special skills needed – if you have ever read a picture book or played “Snap” or “ Guess Who?”,  then you are the perfect person we need!

There will be an initial briefing session on January 15th and the program will begin with students on January 22nd.

Signup online

If you need to know any more about how the program works,  please email
