We need volunteers to help run this event. Please sign up in Help Counter to support the event. There are many volunteer options. You can help out and enjoy the event. Thank you for your support!

Calming Room Available

This year, we will be offering a calming room for kids who need a chance to be away from the noise and hubbub of the carnival to come and take a break so that they’ll be able to rejoin carnival activities when they’re ready. It will NOT be a carnival event or a space to play, but rather a quiet, safe space for kids who are easily sensorily overwhelmed. The room will be kept quiet, the lights will stay low, and there will be a few low-key activities available, such as coloring, fidgets, and a reading corner. The room will be staffed by a volunteer for the duration of the carnival, but kids using the calming room must be accompanied by an adult, keep their voices down, and respect the need for quiet and calm of the other kids using the space.

The raffle is a fun addition to the carnival, and we are looking for raffle basket donations. All students will receive a free raffle ticket, so everyone has a chance to win!

How it works

Any individual, business, or group may create a kid-friendly themed basket to donate at the carnival. The value of each basket should be at least $25 and the more creative your basket, the more fun at the carnival. Some examples of basket themes are A Night at the Movies, Chocolate, Rainy Day Fun, Legos, Book Worm and Game Night. 100% of the raffle proceeds support PTA programs.

Basket Drop Off

Baskets donations can be dropped off at the school office or contact Joann Faris, our carnival donation chair for other options. We are taking donations now, but would like them no later than May 1st . That gives us time to organize and plan.

Thank You!
