FUN FAIR COMMITTEE: Fun Fair 2016 – Fun Fair is almost here— Mark your calendars for February 5! Wristband orders were due today, but we are extending the deadline until Monday, Feb. 1st. A wristband will be needed 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). New this year we will have games down the first grade hallway, and photo booth will be where it was last year, near the kindergarten rooms. The Photo Booth, 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.
Fun Fair needs you! It may be hard to believe, but we still have 80 volunteer spots to fill at our biggest event of the year! Shifts are short and easy! We are looking for Moms, Dads and responsible high school students to fill the many slots that we have. (This is a great opportunity for teens needing service hours!) Grab a friend and sign up together! Just place your friend’s name in the comment section near your sign-up. Make sure that they sign up and request you too! Feel free to sign up for multiple slots if you are interested! Second shift (6:20 – 7:10) and third shift (7:10 – 8:00) are in particular need of volunteers. Thank you so much for your help! Click here for Fun Fair sign up and let us know where we can count on you to help! This link will also be available on the Ivy Hill Elementary PTA Facebook page!
