Tuesday, December 17, 2019 9:45 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. 
 
1st Grade Skates & Sweets - Thu, Jan 2, 6-8pm: 1st Grade Families, skate into 2020 Burroughs-style at Roller Garden! Entry, skate rental, glow sticks galore, and tasty sweets and snacks for your whole family! We'll have the rink to ourselves to share moves -or simply try to stay on our feet! Terra firma more your style? No problem - nibble sweets, connect with other families, and watch the spinners go.
 
Sip & Swag - Thu, Jan 9, 7-9 pm: 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 10, 7 pm: 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 25, 6 pm: Let's glow! Sign up for a fun, family yoga party! We bring the glow sticks and body paint, you wear the bright clothes, and together we'll bring a whole new twist to your practice! Taught by a local kids yoga practitioner, this 45-minute session will be a fun, playful way to get kids moving around and inward. Sign-up today--only ONE spot remains.
 
3rd Grade Moms Wine & Cheese - Thu, Jan 30, 7-10 pm: Calling all third grade moms! Come join us for a night of good conversation, friends, light appetizers, and adult beverages.
