Mashburn Elementary Blue Bear Notes
September 11, 2015
Everything is Possible, Dream Big, Embrace Creativity, and Expect Great Results:
Everything is Possible teaches us that we are all capable of living extraordinary lives. We learn that everything in existence was once just an idea, until someone believed it was possible and turned it into a reality. Embracing this fact allows us to envision a wonderful life, expect greatness, and make our dreams come true.

Calling All Volunteers!
We are looking for volunteers to help out at Mashburn’s Blue Bear Festival! We need people to collect tickets and “man” games and rides, sell concessions, do face paint, and put tattoos on. If you are available Friday, September 18th from 5-8 and would like to help out we would love to have you! Please contact Emma Loesch at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to include your age so you can be matched to the best area for you. Thanks!!!!
Our beloved Blue Bear Festival is coming up on Friday, September 18th from 5:00-8:00 p.m. Among parents and students of all ages, the Cake Walk is one of the most popular events at our festival. We need everyone's help in making this event a success by having lots of treats for people to win. We are in desperate need for people to bake or to buy and donate pies, cakes, or individually wrapped sets of cookies, brownies, cupcakes, Rice Krispy treats, or any other treats that you can think of. We also welcome specialty items such as sugar and gluten free. If you make homemade items, please put a label on it that lists the ingredients for those with food allergies. Starting Thursday, September 17th, we will have a table set-up in the Front Office were you can drop off your donations for the Cake Walk. We will also have a cart out during the car rider line where you can hand your treats off to staff without having to get out of your car. If you have any questions about the Cake Walk, please e-mail Mrs. Porter at email@example.com. We greatly appreciate any donations that you can make in helping our Cake Walk to be a fun experience for everyone.
