CANDY & PRIZE DONATIONS NEEDED!

Thank you to those who have already dropped off some candy & prize donations in the lobby. We still need to collect a lot more to supply our kiddos with a fun experience. Please consider picking up a bag of PEANUT FREE candy while you're at the grocery store and sending it in with your kid in the morning to drop in the big labeled bin in the lobby.

TRUNK OR TREAT cars still needed!

We still have 4 slots available to fill for our Trunk or Treat! Participants will arrive at 10 am and setup in the bus loop. Please text me if you are interested and let me know the theme you'd like to do, as you'll be the only car allowed to decorate in that theme. Candy will be provided and service hours will be awarded for the 4 hours you'll be there (10AM - 2PM).

SILENT AUCTION DONATIONS NEEDED!

PTO is putting together a silent auction fundraiser for Harvest Fest. We need donations to fill the gift baskets. The attached items are just ideas. We welcome any donation that would be suitable for auctioning as the gift baskets will be assembled according to what is donated. Please drop off your donations in the lobby (or send in with your child). Please bag your donation and label it "PTO HARVEST FEST DONATION" - we do not want your donation confused with the items for the Bahamas Drive. Thank you so much!
