PTA Basket Auction and Carnival

Submitted by kali.brown on Wed, 04/27/2016 - 17:28

The PTA Silent Auction Fundraiser and School Carnival will be held Friday, May 13, 2016 from 5:00pm­-8:00pm.  This is a major fundraising event for our PTA.  The funds earned are used to buy bikes and books for the reading program, provide food and activities for staff appreciation, buy prizes for Walk to School Day, recognize teachers on their birthdays, and provide dinner on SEP nights.  Did you go to the great Family Art Night?  Funds from the carnival purchased the art supplies for that evening.  Love the Reflections art program?  PTA pays for the medals and recognitions.  These things, and many MANY more, are made possible only through the generosity of families like yours.

Besides attractions and food that bring money in at our carnival, we also have success auctioning themed baskets.  This is in large part to all of you!  We appreciate your generous donations to the carnival baskets.

This year each grade­-level is assigned a theme.  Look around your gift closets, check out the store clearance sections, or ask your boss for a donation ... and send them to the school by ... (extended date) May 6, 2016.  Your child will receive 1 ticket to throw a ball at the dunk tank for every item they bring.  The grade-­level that brings in the MOST items will win an awesome prize!

Below are the different themes available ... Please feel free to contribute to whichever theme you are most able!

● Kindergarten - ­ Camping
● 1st Grade ­ - Family Fun
● 2nd Grade ­ - Date Night
● 3rd Grade ­ - Summer Activities
