Fall Festival

Yum





Last night was our school's Fall Festival. Our amazing Parent Teacher Organization puts it on, and last night was a fabulous testimony on how much these people can accomplish. There were at least 50 different games, entertainment from 5-9, a dunking booth for the administrators and coaches, a raffle with over 50 prizes and a main raffle where the grand prize was a Wii. There was food galore, including chili dogs, shredded smoked pork, cotton candy, homemade desserts, and on and on!

The event raised nearly $7000 and most goes into the pockets of teachers who worked a game last night. These teachers have a goal of purchasing items for their classroom that are not typically in the school budget. Don't you love their dedication?

Here are a few fun pictures from the event... enjoy!



PS I finally changed the date on my camera. Hopefully you won't see anymore 2005 on the photos I am taking!

  1. I miss going to these fall festivals now that the girls are grown. I will have to check with the neighborhood kids about their schools. Love that the money stays in the school

  3. Hi Terri,
    I so miss those type of school fairs. We used to have them when we lived in Nebraska.
    What dedication from your teachers and staff.
    Have a wonderful week.
    Blessings,

  4. I love school fairs! a lot of work but a lot of fun too!

    Hey Terri...we would have such fun out shopping and lunching together. I hope we can make that a reality someday soon. I keep telling Bill that I NEED another trip back towards your way...we can meet half way between your house and Pat's and hit the shops.

    But you have to bring you gorgeous daughter and Wilson and Truman!
    Just seeing that picture of them on the side bar put a huge smile on my face!

    Love,
    Sue

  9. At our elementary school, they no longer allow the dunking booth. They say that it's degrading to teachers... PU LEEZ!
    $7000... that's awesome!!!
