How can I help?
There are so many ways to help, come to one of the event meetings throughout October.
There is a lot of work that goes into planning, setting up, running, and breaking down this event Parents from every classroom are needed to work at least one carnival booth for 30 minutes. If you have time to spare, please contact the event corrdinators
If you don't have time to volunteer, but would like to donate money instead, click here. Printed forms are also located in the Office for your convenience. Donations of baked goods for the bake sale, loaning us a pop up tent are also requested, as well as gently used stuffed animals and hotwheels/matchbox cars.

The carnival is a non-profit event for the sole purpose of the children's enjoyment. Please consider being a sponsor. To donate click here, or get a sponsorship form in the front office.
Booth signups are online and done by classroom. Look on this page for more info and links.
Pop Up Tent
Loan us your pop up tent for the MBMA costume parade. It takes place during the hottest part of the day and children are likely to be hot due to their costumes. These will be used during the parade. We ask each classroom to provide at least 2 pop up tents to be used to shade the students. Rooms without a tent will not have any shade for the children or the parents. If you are able to provide one or two please signup on the form in each classroom. Drop off your tent the week of the carnival in the upper parking lot outside the auditorium. There will be tags provided to label your tent with your name.
Do you bake? No, not a problem. We take any baked goodies as long as they are labeled for eggs, nuts, gluten free, etc. Drop them off the morning of the bake sale in the auditorium.
A wristband allows a child entry into the carnival. This allows them to play the carnival games, enter the petting zoo and win tickets to exchange for prizes. To purchase a wristband click here or click shop above. Earlybird pricing provides a discounted price for a limited time. Wristbands can be purchased online or by check in the front office with a form until the wednesday prior to the event, after that they must be purchased at the event. If you pre-ordered a wristband then they will be delivered to the students prior to being dismessed by their teachers for the event. You can purchase wristbands for outside friends & family who might attend. (Adults do not need to purchase a wristband)
Pumpkin Carving Contest
1:30pm- in the Upper Playground student will gather with their classroomss. They take turns parading around the other students showing off their costumes.

Where do we park to attend the Carnival?
The Lower Field parking will be available all day Friday and Street Parking will also be available all day Friday.
Why are parts of the upper parking lot unavailable on Thursday and Friday?
As most of the carnival takes place on the Upper Parking Lot, we need to close it down for setup of booths and vendors on Thursday at 9am and all day Friday
Permission Slips or Can't make it to school by 2pm
All Children's House students and elementry rooms 2-6 must have a signed and filled out permission slip returned to their teacher or office. This allows the office to know if a child will need supervision after 2pm or if you delegate supervision of your child to another parent/adult.
During the carnival food trucks, kettle corn, baked goods at the bake sale, and other sources for food and drinks will be available. Please bring cash as some vendors do not accept credit/debt cards.
Is the Carnival a fundraiser?
No, the carnival is a non-profit event hosted by the volunteers of MBMA’s Parent Group, organized solely for the purpose of the children's enjoyment. This is a wonderful way to meet your children's friends and parents, so please save the date for this year's Halloween Carnival! Monies collected from admission charges and any donations are used solely to offset the costs of putting on the carnival (i.e., equipment rentals, prizes, decorations, etc.).
Does the school host the Carnival?
No, the Carnival is hosted by volunteers from the MBMA Parent Group. If you would like to volunteer or contribute, please contact the event corrdinator
Who may attend the Carnival?
The Halloween Carnival is primarily an MBMA community event, however grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, neighbors, alumni and other guests are welcome to attend. All children must have a wristband to participate.
What is there to do at the Carnival?
The school is transformed into a true carnival with games for all ages, food vendors, prizes, pony rides, a petting zoo, face painting, fortune teller, fire-truck, a colossal jumpy, and a student created haunted house. Entries and winners from the pumpkin decorating contest and student art tote bag contest will also be showcased!
