October 27: Fall Festival!

TICKETS

Admission is a cash donation of whatever dollar amount you choose. This is a cash-only event, and the currency once inside the gym will be tickets. Tickets will either cost $0.25 or $1 a piece and will be used for all of the events in the gym.

ACTIVITIES

There will be games, snacks for sale, a bake sale, a raffle, and a dance. Games and such will be run for about the first hour or so. After that, we will be turning down the lights and turning up some music for a dance. Some of the prizes for the games will be glow sticks…so let the fun begin!

COSTUMES

If your children (or you) would like to wear their costumes, they certainly can! We only ask that any pieces that can get lost (ie swords, hammers, wands) perhaps be left at home. We would hate to have something like that get lost in the gym before the big day on the 31st.

VOLUNTEERS

There is a great crew working on planning this event, but we would love some help from you, the AMS community. View our SignUpGenius for ways you can help. We are looking for:

  • some of the upper elementary students to help with the games (they can either make their own game, or we can provide the games). We are looking to have 8-9 games. We are open to any adults who would like help with this as well. We ask that anyone doing a game to please come early enough so you can set up before the event begins.
  • a couple of middle schoolers to man a ticket table/bake sale and snack table/admission table
  • individually wrapped items for the bake sale (If you choose to do this, PLEASE MAKE SURE TO NOTE IF THERE ARE PEANUT/TREE NUT PRODUCTS – THIS INCLUDES NUT PRODUCTS LIKE NUT MILKS OR NUT BUTTERS – IN YOUR ITEM)
  • chips/popcorn for the snack table
  • clean up after the dance

DECORATIONS – CRAFT PROJECT ALERT!

We will be sending home an envelope with some colored paper for your student(s) to cut out and create a pumpkin, hat, ghost, or leaf for us to decorate the gym. They should be coming home with your student on Monday (the 17th), and we would like them returned on Monday, the 24th. This will give us enough time to get our decorations organized and get things set up. Even if you cannot attend the festival, we would love to have your children create a decoration for the gym. It is always fun to see what they come up with.

We are excited about this event and getting everyone together for a fun evening! Please feel free to email Heather Smart with any questions. Hope to see you there!!
