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.




Bake Sale


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. Want to help during the carnival? You can help sell baked goods during the event to hungry mouths. Contact the event corrdinator for more informaiton about helping during the event.

Parking


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.




Food


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.
