HOOVER CARNIVAL

Hoover Elementary

Dear Hoover Parents,

The last fun Event of this school year is coming up soon! The much awaited HOOVER CARNIVAL is coming up on Thursday,  May 30th from 11 am -2 pm. 

Besides being the most fun event of the school year, it is your last chance at volunteering too..

We will be having a host of fun activities -  Apart from the usual Cotton Candy, Popcorn and Snow cone machines, we will have 10 carnival games that need help manning. We will also be having Photo booths, Face painting station and  Donut eating station.

We will definitely need more than a few hands to help  us with these and not to forget the hot dog grilling, fruit cutting and serving food!

We request you to please sign up below to help us run the event.  Also click on the details tab next to the jobs, to know more/ read about the task.

 

Thank you,

Priti & Sridevi
