Fun Fair 2015 – Fun Fair is almost here — mark your calendars for February 6!  Again this year: buy a wristband for unlimited access to as many games as you want to play for the whole night!  Each wristband costs $12 if you pre-order ($15 if you buy at the door).  A photobooth, plus cotton candy, popcorn, pizza, hot dogs, chips, candy and drinks will be back at Fun Fair this year, too – all for purchase with cash only.  To pre-order wristbands, use Fun Fair Flyer 2015 and send it back to school no later than Friday, January 30.  A hard copy of the order form was sent home via backpack mail today. The other side of the form also offers you the chance to volunteer at Fun Fair and/or donate food items (including soda, water, ice, or a baked item for the cake walk).  MANY volunteers are needed to make Fun Fair a success, so please consider volunteering!  Please e-mail Suzanne Krause at svkrause@hotmail.com with any other questions.
