Can I just say that I am SOOOO glad that last week is OVER!!!! I'm on the PTSA Board and Friday was our school Carnival. It seems like we have been working on this thing for months and when the final week came it was just a rush, rush, rush!
You talk about thinking BIG!!! We found out that one of the schools in our district wasn't going to have a carnival this year, so they asked if they could come to ours, no biggy. We'll then it just grew and grew from there. Next thing we knew we had 2 other schools from the district we invited to come. Then the day before we found out that the other school in the district canceled theres and was planning on coming to ours. WOW, I think we got in over our head here. But you talk about bring a community together.
Of course with everything, you'll have a few snags here and there, but over all everyone seemed to have a good time. We had kids out there dancing with the DJ (not just little kids, but older kids, crazy) and everyone seemed to enjoy the rides. ME, I just wanted to crash and burn. We've learned a few things to do and not to do for next year, so next year will be even better. Its all about getting community involvement and that was our aim! If you came, thanks for coming, hope you had fun...sorry the food lines were so long (something to work on next year). If you helped in ANY way, we couldn't have done this without you, your helping to make our community a better one and our schools. Thanks.
