Proceeds from this year’s fundraiser will be designated to pay for new technology for the building, reading materials for the classrooms, and a shade shelter for the playground. As always, we will need many volunteers to help make this event a success!

We need your help with donations to put together themed gift baskets for your child’s class.  In past, these gift baskets have been a big success in our fundraising efforts.  Here’s where you can help:

  • Raffel baskets: gift cards/ IPAD/ Mystery VISA card-- to donate send a check, any gift card, or wal mart gift card to school to be applied to these very useful raffle baskets!!!! Good luck everyone~ Each would be wonderful to win before Christmas!
  • Donate item(s) if you do crafts or have a business

  • Donate desserts (homemade or store bought) for the cakewalk and desserts in the meal.

  • Volunteer for “work night” (pizza will be provided).  We will work on final preparations on festival games and prizes on Thursday, December 1st from 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Because of your help, each of our past Festivals have been a great success!  If you can help with any of the above, PLEASE take a minute to fill out the form below and return it to the school ASAP.  If you have any questions, PLEASE contact one of the festival Coordinators listed below.
