Dear St. Serra Parents,

This year's Harvest Festival is ONE not to be missed!

It has been a tradition for the past 21 years that the St. Serra families come together on their children's campus to Share the Harvest. This year's theme "BE ONE" pays tribute to this special tradition and celebrates the diversity among us, which is what makes our community so special! 
Each year Harvest Festival is able to raise money for the current operating budget, which in turn, helps to keep tuition affordable. This is done through a Festival that is truly an amazing day for the whole family to share! From a state of the art Zipline, to a Petting Zoo, and Handcrafted Food from around the globe, we have something for everyone of all ages! Take a look at what is NEW this year!

  • 'Keep Your Kitchen Clean Day'! This Thursday, September 15th, you can do your part!  Join us for some fun as we eat out at Casa Ranchero in Ladera Ranch. Have some great food and drinks anytime from 11:00 a.m. - 11:00 p.m. (dine in or take out) and 20% of food purchases go right to Harvest. Please take a picture with your phone or print the Casa Ranchero Flyer and take it with you.
