Fall Festival - 2011

Our annual PTO Fall Festival was held last Thursday night.  It was a great success, raising enough money to be able to provide for our elementary school in many ways during the next year.  Because of it's success, this is typically the only fund raiser our PTO has during each school year.
The concession stand, basket auction, and silent auction is in our school cafeteria.  The high school games, preschool Bouncy House, and gift/craft vendors set up in our gym.  The gym fills up in a hurry with all of the activities!
The Kindergarten room had a duck pond.  Students enjoyed picking ducks to find out of they were a winner or not!
In conjunction with the Fall Festival is the Scholastic Book Fair.  It's a great time to get parents to visit the book fair and students to make their book selections.
This year the PTO sold elementary t-shirts during the Fall Festival.  There is also a silent auction going on during the event.
Most of the silent auction items are tiger-themed, since the tiger is our school mascot.
Each elementary class has a basket for an auction.  The Kindergarten had an art-themed basket.  How cute is that!??
The third grade had a Christmas themed basket.  It was a popular basket, as well.  Actually, this year, they were all really popular!
This scarecrow scene is outside the Kindergarten room.  Isn't it cute? 

The Fall Festival couldn't be a success without the help of others.  I organize the event, but if it weren't for my husband, Joe, I couldn't do it.  He helps so much!  So do our children.  They clean, carry, move, etc.....just whatever we need done.  And of course, without the teachers having their games and baskets, the event wouldn't be as much fun at all.  It takes everyone working together.

So, thank you to everyone - from those who attended to those who brought items or served in any way.  We appreciate YOU!
