GES Fall Carnival

The countdown to the annual GES Carnival & Auction is on, and it is now time to think of our grade level auction baskets! If you are new to our school, the Carnival & Auction is our largest fundraising event. Past proceeds have gone to some wonderful school additions like our World of Wonder garden the children love, and new software and other teaching materials for our teachers. It is also a lot of fun! In the past, each home room would be asked to contribute a themed basket for the auction. When each family contributes 1-2 items for the basket we wind up with some really wonderful results!

This year auction baskets will be a collaborative grade level effort. Each grade has been assigned a number of basket themes and we are asking families to contribute to one or as many as you would like. For more information, click the link below. A letter will also be going home in each child's folder. We are so excited to see what each grade comes up with!

Pre-K & Kinder Grade Basket Assignments are: Soarin' Super Heroes, Princess/Diva Dress Up Collection, What's Cookin?, Oh Baby!, and Posh Pet!
