Food trucks open at 5:30 pm
Games start at 5:30 pm
This event is the PTA's largest fundraiser of the year. It is a carnival with food trucks, games, and bouncy areas along with a silent auction event in the gymnasium at the end of the evening. If you haven't been or don't know about it, then you definitely are missing out on the fun!
Leading up to the event is a week long celebration because each day has a "theme". Monday is Mustache Monday, Tuesday is Tacky Tuesday, Wednesday is Dress Your Best, Thursday is Sports Day and Friday is when to wear your Hoot, Scoot and Boogie shirt! Also, he class "baskets" are displayed in the hallways for everyone to check out! See below about the baskets.
Each child and teacher are given a free tee shirt, that the school then uses for every field trip that is taken that year. Other family members can purchase tee shirts as well, to show their school spirit. The forms have been sent home with your child or you can click here to buy them online.
Each child is given 5 free tickets to be spent at the fair. Tickets can be purchased the evening of the carnival or online in the My Account/Forms section in bundles of 10. This is suggested due to the long lines that sometimes form at the carnival.
This year rooms will be combining and 3 baskets will be made per grade level for the silent auction. Each item has a theme - movies, camping, Pokemon, cooking, etc. Parents are asked to donate items via a SignupGenius list or money via PayPal.
All in all, it is a great event at Oak View and takes a lot of volunteers working several months to pull this together. If you are interesting in volunteering, please contact a board member.
