Dear Parent or guardian,
As you probably know by now, our traditional French Café will be held on December 8, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. This 5th grade charity event‘s purpose is to raise money to help the less fortunate families in our community by providing children with Christmas presents and food for their family’s Christmas dinner.
The French Café operates strictly on donations. We ask parents to donate food, drinks, and supplies for the café. In the past, the generosity of the parents of the 5th graders, faculty, and staff was enough to host the café. However, the success of the café is so important now, we are in need of more donations in order for our café to be as successful this season as we have in the past.
The Café night is also filled with other fund-raising activities such as the Silent Auction, where people can bid on artistic pieces and crafts, and the “Raffle for a Basket,” where people can purchase raffle tickets to win a huge basket full of goodies. This year we are also opening a gift shop, Santa’s Workshop, and a Cake Walk. All of these activities will help to raise money with the French Café’ and will also be used for our charitable cause.
For all of these reasons, we are extending our wish for donations to the whole school; in fact, we are extending it to the whole community. Below, you will find a list of all the things we need. If you would like to donate and help us, please complete the form, and send it back to school by Friday, November 18.
The French Café has always received your support in the past, and I know that we can count on it again this year. Thank you in advance for your kind donations.

Dear Fifth Grade Parent or Guardian,
It is a tradition for fifth graders to host the French Café every year. This charity event‘s purpose is to raise money to help the less fortunate families in our community by providing children with Christmas presents and food for their family’s Christmas dinner.
Your child’s involvement with the French Café will be so meaningful for your child. The experience will teach your child the real meaning of charity work, as well as boost his or her confidence by talking to an audience in a foreign language. In addition, your child will learn a sense of responsibility. And finally, working with the French Café will give your child fun memories that he or she will remember for years to come.
This is why it is important for your child to be present on December 8, from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm, to participating in the French Café.
This year, we will provide every student who is participating in the French Café a special shirt to wear during the Café night. That shirt will be his/hers to keep after the café closes its doors.
I understand that the café will take place late, on a school night, and for this reason it is your choice to let your child participate or not. This is why I need you to fil in the form bellow so I will know how many children I can count on to make the French Café 2016, “Le Café du Loup Blanc,” the best one ever.
I appreciate your understanding and your support always,

Once again, Maurepas School is hosting the 5th grade “French Café”. The purpose of this charity event is to collect funds to buy Christmas presents for children of less fortunate families in our community.
In 2005, 5th grade students opened the very first French Café (the Wolves Café) of Maurepas School during the Literacy Night. We had 16 students’ desks set up as four tables for our customers. We were located in the “basement” and we collected $177.85. Right away, it became a tradition. And every year, during Literacy Night or Math Night, 5th grade students opened and hosted their café. And every year it grew and grew. Soon we moved it to the school cafeteria, to have more room for our customers. The “French Café” grew so fast that more people needed to help. Beta Club students, and faculty and staff started to help, donate and volunteer their time to the café. In 2014, the café was so big that it needed its own night. Now, the whole school participates in the event, taking part in the program, creating ornaments and pieces of art to sell during the night. Last year, we raised $5,046.23.
The “French Café” works because of you and your donations. Parents, teachers and friends of the school donate food, drinks and snacks for students to sell. All money raised on the café night will go to the cause.
Also starting in 2014, French Café opened booth around the theme of the Café, inviting costumers to visit our booth on the second floor. Six booth will entertain you this year, “Raffle for a Gift Basket”, “Santa’s Little Work Shop”, “Picture with Santa”, “Silent Auction”, “An Ornament for a Donation” and “S”Elf”ie”. We hope to see you December 8 at Maurepas High School, 23923 Hwy 22, Maurepas, starting at 5:00 PM.
If you wish to help by donating to the French Café, contact Mr. Fred (225-695-6111, or Frederic.Ledent@lpsb.org.)
