Tuesday, November 19, 2019 10:00 AM

Great Gatherings are one of the many ways we bring families together to build community at Burroughs, and 100 percent of ticket revenue goes directly to the Burroughs Fund. We welcome and encourage all families to attend any and all Great Gatherings that are held throughout the school year. 


Below are a few upcoming Great Gatherings you won't want to miss! Buy tickets to all upcoming Great Gatherings here. If ticket price is a barrier to attending any Great Gathering, please email Beth Alvarez or Wendy Jezarian. 
4th Grade Moms Wine & Craft Night - Thu, Dec 6th, 7-9pm: Sip wine, sample cheeses, and savor sweet treats. We've also added a fun craft activity - you'll head home with felted holiday tree decor. Not feeling crafty? No problem, just come for the wine & skip the craft!  
Kindergarten Moms Coffee - Sun, Dec 8th, 10am - Noon: Come out and enjoy some delicious coffee, homemade pastries, and seasonal fruit while getting to know other kinder moms. We'll meet at the Beancounter Coffee House downtown.
Sip & Swag - Thu, Jan 9th, 7-9pm: Join other Burroughs moms for a night out at mXe (pronounced Moxie) in Linden Hills where we will learn an easy-to-follow dance routine that's sure to make you feel like you're starring in a music video. We absolutely promise it will be a blast and will make you feel fantastic! After our "swag" dance session, we'll socialize and enjoy sweet and savory sips and snacks that won't cramp any New Year's resolutions-too much. Class will be taught by mXe owner and well-known Minneapolis fitness instructor, Heather C; learn more about mXe at www.mxe.life. Plus, your ticket to an awesome evening also includes a swag bag! 
9th Annual Dads Bonfire - Fri, Jan 10th, 7pm: Minnesotans don't let the weather stop them from having fun! Being a man in Minnesota adds an extra element of heartiness that can best be celebrated around a FIRE. Add beer, bourbon, pizza and snacks, great music, and most important, good company, and you have a recipe for a memorable winter night. Dress warm as manliness points will be deducted for going inside! 
Glow in the Dark Family Yoga - Sat, Jan 25th, 6pm: Let's glow! Sign-up for a fun, family yoga party! We bring the glow sticks and body paint, you wear the bright clothes, together we'll bring a whole new twist to your practice! Taught by a local kids yoga practioner, this 45-minute session will be a fun, playful way to get kids moving around and inward.
3rd Grade Moms Wine & Cheese - Thu, Jan 30th, 7-10pm: Calling all 3rd grade moms! Come join us for a night of good conversation, friends, light appetizers and adult beverages.
