Fun Fair Volunteers Needed!

posted Apr 23, 2017, 3:48 PM by Lee Drever

Adams Road Fun Fair 
Friday, May 26th 
| 5 - 8pm!
It is that time to step up and volunteer to help make our fun fair a huge success!  

Cakes

To make our cake walk a success we ask that you donate as many cakes or cupcakes as you would like!  The cakes/cupcakes don’t have to be homemade they can be store bought.  Please ensure that all items are nut free!  We will have a judging contest and the top 5 decorated cakes will win a free punch card!  These items can be brought to the school on Friday, May 26 and dropped off before 11:30am in the multi-purpose room.  Decorated cake judging will take place at 12:00pm.  If you are bringing store bought cakes or do not want your cakes judged we will be accepting cakes until 2:30pm.  Please ensure your child’s name and division is on the cake if you would like it judged.

Candy Donations

We will be welcoming buckets of sealed candy for our candy game for Fun Fair.  If you would like to help by donating a volunteer sign up sheet will be sent out the first week of May.


Raffle Baskets

There will be an email and sign up sheet sent to your classroom to sign up for items we hope to have donated for raffle baskets or for the candy game.  Each Division has been assigned a theme.  Money is always a welcome donation to fill missing needed items.  All donations and money have to be received by Thursday, May 4.
 

Volunteer hours  

We want you to enjoy the fair with your child but it takes the hard work of many volunteers to pull off this event.  There will be a sign up sheet online to volunteer at the beginning of May.  We will advertise when this is posted.  We will need volunteer hours to cover from 4:30pm until 8:30pm on Friday, May 26.  

Game Punch Cards

The Munchalunch website will be open for ordering of pre-sales as of April 18. We require all pre-sale orders and payment no later than May 5th.  After May 5th the full price will be charged for punch cards and will be available on the day of the fair based on availability.  

We encourage you to order through pre-sales as the prices will be substantially lower until May 5.  Pre-sales give us a good idea of how many punch cards to provide and how many prizes to purchase so please order early and save money!  Punch cards will be sent home with your child on Thursday May 18th.  Do not lose these as there are no refunds!  

PLEASE NOTE: Punch Cards are $8.00 each (a previous handout incorrectly said $6.50)

Food Trucks

We are trying something different this year!  We have a few food trucks attending our fun fair this year.  There will be no presales.  

Food trucks will be set up to purchase food directly through the trucks from 5:00-8:00pm.  We will have two trucks - Wings and Red’s Poutine.  Please expect long food lines especially if purchasing over the dinner rush.  We will have a concession set up to sell drinks only. The Cotton Candy Kids will be there selling Cotton Candy and Sno Cones as well.

A New, Easy Way to Help!

posted Jan 14, 2016, 9:07 PM by Lee Drever

The PAC is looking to create a list of people who are willing to be contacted when 'one-off' help is required.

Add Your Name To The List!
When help is required, we will send an email to the group. Whoever is able to help at that time responds! An easy way to help out... could be counting flyers, writing thank-you cards or making a poster.
