PTA Spring Carnival May 13, 2016

Submitted by kali.brown on Tue, 03/15/2016 - 18:44

Plans are being made for the annual PTA Carnival, which will be held Friday, May 13, 2016 from 5pm-8pm.

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 more, are made possible only by 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 gradelevel 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.  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 ... Feel free to contribute to whichever theme you’re most able!

  • Kindergarten - Camping
  • 1st Grade - Family Fun
  • 2nd Grade - Date Night
  • 3rd Grade - Summer Activities
  • 4th Grade - BYU vs U of U
  • 5th Grade - Emergency Preparedness
  • 6th Grade - Star Wars

Have questions?  Concerns?  Itching to do more?  Reach me by phone, text or email ... Thank you!
