GET YOUR GAME ON!!!!!! Help Needed in Advance of the Costume Carnival!
1-233 - Alaina Rausa

Hi All: 

In advance of the rapidly approaching Costume Carnival (10.25), we are in need of some help with the creative work that goes into putting on a successful and fun event! 

We have great, silly games from last year that need champions to help get them off the ground this year!   We have photos and basic instructions, but of course if you have a new, creative, crazy idea, don't hesitate!

Sign up with a friend or two and have fun with it! PTA Co-President Linnea Olson will get in touch with you/your team to go over what your individual game needs.  NB: This does NOT require you to work the game during the carnival. 


THANK YOU for all that you do to support our community and the kids!
