Powell Elementary Carnival is Saturday!

Powell Elementary is having a Carnival on Saturday, May 30th. Sponsored by the parents group (POPPS), the Carnival is a fundraiser to help with paying for technology upgrades for the students. (Here's a PDF of the flyer.)

Come to the Carnival from 11am - 4pm at the Upshur Park basketball courts. There will be cake walks, a bouncy house, bean bag toss, face painting, art stations, food, and much more.

I know some of the teachers and parents working on this event, and they are putting a lot effort in to make this a fun day for the community.

The fundraising part is a raffle to win 75,000 air miles with United Airlines. That’s like a pair of tickets to your favorite dream getaway — only $5 for a ticket. And you get to help fund the needs of the students. Win win. You can even buy your raffle tickets online.

And to make Carnival day quicker, you can pre-purchase activity tickets online (valid for games and food) as well. They ask that you keep your receipt and bring it over on Carnival Day.

Or if you’re just feeling generous, you can donate to their good cause.

Powell Bilingual Elementary School has been recognized nationally as a model for dual language education, and a shining example of what can go right in public education. Your generous donation will help to support the school with the purchase of classroom supplies and technology upgrades, as well as funding educational field trips and enrichment programming for students.

Hope to see you there!
