Carnival 2019 Logo

We estimate that with wristband & ticket sales, parents, volunteers and vendors, there were over 1,000 people in attendance Saturday. PTA is not a fundraising entity, but your support netted almost $7,000 for programs like Parent Education, Pastries with Parents, Movie Nights, Science Night, Inclusion & Diversity, Assemblies and Legislative Advocacy.
