Your PTA has been working hard behind the scenes the last few months getting ready for PTA's biggest fundraiser of the year, the spring carnival! The carnival this year will be on Friday, May 12, 2017 from 3:30 to 7:30. We have many fun things planned, a 45 foot Ferris Wheel, a 3 lane fiberglass slide, the popular obstacle course, surf simulator, carnival games, cake walk, silent auction, teacher feature, and MORE!
The carnival is open to all community members, so invite your friends and neighbors. They can purchase tickets (and sign the waiver) at vdmpta.org/carnival. Wristbands are $20 each (all participants 5 and older need one).
We are still looking for sponsors! This is the last chance for a sponsor to get their banner on our fence, participate in the carnival by having a booth, and support VdM PTA for the 2016-2017 school year. We are also accepting in-kind donations to be auctioned off in our silent auction. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the sponsorship program or to make an in kind donation.
We want to thank our carnival auction committee, our decoration committee, the board members of PTA, our room parents for organizing classroom baskets, teachers and staff for participating in "Teacher Feature" and for their support, and of course, our parents for donating items for the auction (either through a class basket or a gift card if you are a middle school parent) and for volunteering to help staff the carnival (more information coming on that this week).
Another big week we are planning is Teacher Appreciation Week. This week, we are celebrating our teachers the first week of May. On Monday, May 1st, we are asking students to send an "Aloha Note" of appreciation and parents, please drop off any desserts or treats. On Friday the Hook Family and California Pizza Kitchen are providing lunch for the teachers and staff! Students, be sure to wear your best Aloha wear! For more information and a complete list of activities, please visit vdmpta.org, you will find the sign up genius there as well!
And this week, April 24th through Thursday, April 27th is dine out week at Ball Park Pizza. A great dinner option for those who have "Open House" this week (kindergarten, first grade, 4th grade, and fifth grade).
Thank you for reading to the end!
