The Carnival is has been postponed due to weather to Friday, May 10, 5-8pm, at Creekside Elementary School!
This fundraiser event will include bouncy houses, face painting, a magician, food trucks, vendors and lots of games, deejay, prizes and giveaways! Admission is free. Participation in games requires a wristband ($30-includes all games and bouncy houses) or a punch card ($15 includes 20 games, and $8 includes 10 games; punch cards may be used for bouncy houses. Some activities may require more than one punch).
How you can help
We will still need A LOT more volunteers to make our carnival a success, particularly for the last shift for light cleanup! Volunteering to run a game booth is a great way for parents to help out in a FUN and EASY way for 2 hour increments. This is also the perfect way for students to receive 3.5+ hours of Community Service or Volunteer Credit. Please look through the list of games and see how you might be able to help. **Sign-up to help for any 2-hour time slot and receive a FREE PLAY wristband! (a $30 value)**We need volunteers to assist with set-up, running a game, and clean-up!
If you can’t volunteer your time, please consider purchasing items we can use at the carnival. We currently have no soda or individually-wrapped cakes!! All donations should be sent into school with your child or dropped off at the front office by May 8:
o 2 liters of soda, (any variety, plastic only)
o Little Debbie cakes (or any individually-wrapped cakes)
o Thank you families for all the candy donations, you have met our need for candy!
