Sinterklaas is coming to Los Angeles!

Our 2018 Sinterklaas (Saint Nicholas) party will be held on Sunday December 2nd, in Cypress. Ticket sales will start in November and we will be sending out invitations via email via our mailing listClick here if you are not yet our list and would like to receive an invitation.

As the story goes, Sinterklaas will be coming by boat and will hit a rainbow on it's way to Los Angeles. Through the rainbow, a remarkable change takes place and all the pieten (his helpers) will each be changed into one the rainbow's colors!

The Sinterklaas party is an important fundraiser for our school and of course, it will also be a big event for the entire Dutch community in Southern California.
