Epping PTO Carnival A Fun-filled Success

Epping PTO Carnival A Fun-filled Success

On behalf of the Epping Elementary School PTO I would like to express our gratitude to the many parents, teachers and students who volunteered at our carnival June 7th. It was a tremendous success due in part to their great job running the carnival games and inflatables.

Many of the volunteers were Middle and High School Honor Society members as well as Boy Scouts. However other volunteers were future honor society members trying to increase their community service hours. The volunteer turnout was triple the numbers that had signed up! We found spots for everyone to work and we were thrilled with their enthusiasm and support of our event.

Throughout the year our middle and high school students have generously given their time to volunteer to different PTO events. Their youthful enthusiasm and energy is obvious at our events. They are setting a wonderful example for our elementary students. In fact, many 5th graders have already asked to volunteer at events next year! Their contributions have also been noted by parents and other family members that are certainly impressed that our teenagers are willing to help out at community family events. Epping middle and high schools are certainly teaching civil responsibility and involvement to our teenagers.

In addition to our teenaged volunteers we also had a wonderful turnout of parents and teachers who manned carnival booths, sold tickets and food, and made cotton candy and sno-cones. honestly we had no idea how popular sno-cones would be on a rainy 55 degree day! I think every child had at least one! Thank you to EYAA for their loan of the sno-cones machine. A special shout out and thank you to Tom Dwyer for his generous donation of sausages, peppers and onions in addition to manning the grill the entire evening.
