Carnival is coming! Symmes Candyland Carnival will take place at Symmes Elementary from 5:30-9:00 pm on Friday, March 3rd 2017. Please bring your family and friends to share in this exciting event! All are welcome! Carnival is one of the most fun-filled nights of the year for Symmes’ staff and students. There will be lots of games, great food, and prizes!

Carnival is also our largest PTO fundraiser. Parents will have the opportunity to support our school through the online silent auction, attending great gatherings, trying to win a teacher auction, purchase game/food tickets and much much more.

Last year, with your help, our carnival raised enough money that the PTO was able to provide:

  • Chromebooks for EACH student in both 2nd and 3rd grades!!

  • Classroom materials

  • PEACEBUILDERS anti-bullying program

  • The playground GAGA PIT!!!!

Please take time to “Like” the Symmes Elementary School Facebook page where important information about this event and others will be posted and shared.
