Candy Drive starts on Monday, October 3!!

Help your SWEET class win the PANTHER PASS by bringing in bags of individually wrapped candy. Please no chocolates or candy containing nuts.

Make sure and label each bag with your teacher’s name on it. NO NAME means NO CREDIT.

Thank you to our carnival sponsors Advantage Eye Care & Jason Ridley Nationwide Agency. We are excited to have Kona Ice coming to cool us off with delicious snow cones as well as Emler Swim School who will have a booth on water safety.

Do you know somebody who would like to be a vendor at our fall carnival? Or maybe you know somebody who like to help sponsor one of your midway games or inflatables.

Please contact Krista Robb kristalea2001@yahoo.com or 817-253-2941
