    Hello Parents!


    Thank you for all the carnival donations - keep them coming! You can still send your child with raffle basket contributions, as well as small, new toys for the fish pond.


    We need your help during the Winter Carnival to make it a success. The time has come to sign up to work one, or multiple shifts. We have over 100 positions to fill! All adults and kids 10+ are welcome to help (please note: some stations are marked for adults only - thank you).  Invite your grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins - everyone is welcome! Let’s have some fun and raise money for our school!


    This year we're using Sign Up (the leading online Sign-up and reminder tool) to organize our upcoming Sign-ups for the 2017 Winter Carnival.


    Here's how it works in 3 quick and easy steps:


    1)   Go to this link to see our Sign-up on Sign Up: 

    2) Review the options listed and choose the spot(s) you like.

    3) Sign up! It's easy - you will NOT need to register an account or keep a password on Sign Up.


    Note: Sign Up does not share your email address with anyone. If you prefer not to use your email address, please contact Gitte Nessman at mcgowan  and she can sign you up manually.  


    You will get a reminder email regarding your sign-ups 2 days before the Carnival, so please make sure to enter the correct email address!!!
