PTC News


Hi Patriots!  I hope you have had a great week.  As you probably know by now, we are getting very close to the biggest PTC event of the year—Fall Festival!  The festival takes a lot of effort, and we all work to make it a big success each year.  As a reminder the festival is October 30th starting at 5pm.  We have said it will end at 7, but it may run just a little later because of some fun new events.  We will wrap up no later than 7:30.  Please see the list below of items/volunteers still needed.


  1. Craft, art, food items for store and/or silent auction (and volunteers to be in charge of the store and auction)
  2. Pumpkins, square bales, and other items for the photo booth, pumpkin bowling, and the pumpkin decorating contest—We need lots of pumpkins!
  3. Flood lights or other lighting for activities that will be held outside
  4. Dad volunteers to help with hauling games and tables before and after the festival
  5. The 4th grade is in charge of the cake walk this year.  They will need lots of items to make it a big success!
  6. We would like to have a couple of dads to help with security and traffic flow outside.
  7. Balloon Animal maker (we have the balloons)
  8. Front Table greeters
  9. T-shirt sales table
  10. We have asked each grade to lead games or activities for the festival.  If your grade hasn’t selected an activity, yet, we would love to have groups lead the costume contest, store/silent auction, and jail.


You will be receiving information soon about the pumpkin decorating contest.  This will be a competition among all classes—3K/4K through 12th grade.  It will take place before the day of the festival, but the judging will be the night of the festival.  We will need a couple of volunteers to help with the setting up the entries and running the contest festival night.


There are several new activities this year, including a pet costume contest (led by the 7th grade parents), a hayride, a dunking booth (unless it’s freezing), and the pumpkin decorating contest.  There will also be new games to go along with the oldies but goodies.


Please take the time to invite all your friends.  Invite alumni, too!  Alumni also make great volunteers!


Looking forward to hearing from all of you!
