Parade of Pumpkins
October 20, 2017
Hello CBA Families!
One of our biggest and most exciting events of the year is quickly approaching… The Parade of Pumpkins! Here is a little information on this highly anticipated event:
- This is our 14th annual Parade of Pumpkins. The event was started by our Third Graders, and is a student led service project.
- The event is a fundraiser for the organization, Bringing Hope Home. Bringing Hope Home (BHH) is a nonprofit organization that provides unexpected amazingness to local families with cancer through financial and emotional support. To learn more about this charitable organization, please visit www.bringinghopehome.com.
- During the week of October 16th, we will be selling pumpkins in the lobby of the school. We are asking that each family carve a pumpkin and create a Jack-o-Lantern for our parade. Once you are done, please return your Jack-o-Lantern to school on Friday, October 20th. We will line the playground with a parade of spook-tacular jack-o-lanterns!
- During the event, we will be selling hot dogs, soft pretzels, baked goods, hot chocolate, and glow bracelets. All money collected will go toward Bringing Hope Home.
- The event runs from 6:30pm to 8:00pm on Friday, October 20th and is a rain or shine event. In the event of inclement weather, the event will be held in the gymnasium.
