PTA Carnival is May 16

Posted in News & Announcements

The Carnival is almost upon us. It is scheduled this Saturday, May 16th.  

Yikes! . . . . . are you having visions of rain-soaked kids grimacing for the camera next to soggy princesses and superheroes? Well, never fear . . . . . we have a solution for that!

Due to the high probability of cold temperatures and rain, we have chosen to hold the carnival INSIDE the school.  Don’t worry, it will still be an amazing experience, filled with excitement and fun! Those jump houses WILL fit in our gym. You and your family will love the experience.  Don’t let this great opportunity go by without your involvement.

The PTA has not even missed a beat in planning an awesome evening. Thanks to pre-sales the PTA is 1/2 way to their goal. So come on out and support us. If you have not bought tickets yet, you are welcome to come and buy at the door.  The prices are: $9/individual ticket and $33 for a family of 4 or more.  Such a deal for all this great fun!

Please also bring your cash or checkbooks (sorry, we have no ability to take credit cards). You will use that extra cash to buy tickets for additional rides (these will still be some rides outside, if the weather permits) or to purchase food (yummy dinners and snacks) and of course, money for our amazing auction items.  Also remember to bring your camera/cell phone to take pictures with princesses and superheroes (you are it - there will be no other photographer here). Please enter through the front doors of the school. All other doors will be locked. We will have directions/locations to all of the events, so that you don’t miss a thing.

Let me talk a minute about the silent auction. The community and parents have been so supportive in donations. We have many baskets to auction off with values of $10-$200 or more. So come prepared for great deals. There are several amazing donations that came in, like photography packages, karate lessons, bird cages, dog boarding and grooming, chocolate baskets and so much more.  A silent auction is when bid papers are put next to the baskets and people write down their bids. If someone out bids you, bid again. The last and highest bidder wins it. And all the money goes for a good cause – our kids!

Have you ever had a dream of running away and joining a circus? If that is the case, then working our Carnival games can help you fulfill that dream. If that is not your dream, you will still have great fun as a volunteer running carnival games or selling food.

The PTA is still in DESPERATE NEED of volunteers to make this night work successfully!

See you at the Carnival!

Hufflepuff wins the Annual Harry Potter Penny War

Posted in News & Announcements

In a close race, Hufflepuff won the annual Harry Potter Penny War last week!  Congratulations to the classes of Mrs. Newton, Mrs. Jensen, Mrs. Nichols, Mrs. Hatton, and Mrs. Wirth! They enjoyed a celebration on May 6 that included Harry Potter themed snacks, a raffle, a dress up/photo booth, and a potions class!  Slytherin, Gryffindor, and Ravenclaw also attended an assembly where they were able to participate in a raffle.

All four houses did a fantastic job bringing in donations, which all went to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  Students and teachers had a fun time all week - between the school being decorated as Hogwarts and students "sabotaging" other houses, it sure was a week to remember!    The real winner was L&LS, who earned just over $4,000 for cancer research.  11193382_826917137401314_4013645086700801240_n.jpg
