Sinterklaas travels to our schools in North Hollywood, Orange County en San Diego every year to visit the children. Around December 6, the school organizes a wonderful Sinterklaas celebration. The arrival of Saint Nicholas and the meet & greet with Sinterklaas is always a special moment. The children have a lot of fun with arts & crafts, playing Dutch games, meeting St. Nicholas, receiving a present and play together with their friends. And let's not forget the delicious pepernoten and chocolate letters.
For the parents it is a great celebration, too. A lot of childhood memories are involved. There is also a lot of fun, the opportunity to meet other international parents and to enjoy a fantastic buffet with Dutch and Flemish food.
The Sinterklaas party is a fundraiser for our school and a big event for the Dutch community in Southern California. Each year, beautiful baskets are given away through silent auction and raffle. The proceeds go entirely to our school to buy new teaching materials and books for our library.
