Wilchester Carnival
Join us on November 4th!

What is Carnival?

Carnival is a family-fun community event for ALL Wilchester families and neighbors! This fun event is held annually and includes games, inflatables, food, and prize/raffle drawings. The event itself is free, but you will need tickets to play games and buy food, and you will need a wristband to play on the inflatables. There are also raffle tickets available to win prizes. All proceeds benefit the school through the Wilchester PTA.  


What's the SCHEDULE for Carnival Week?

The carnival schedule will be announced closer to the activities. Stay tuned for more information! 


How Can I Help?

Be on the lookout for ways to help at Carnival! There are many ways, including:

  1. Buy Food & Game Tickets! 

    100 Food and Game tickets should allow a family of four to eat dinner and play an average of 5-8 games.

    **Red Food and Game tickets are $1 each.

    Insider tips:

    * Buy a lanyard for each child to hold their individual tickets (only $3)
    * Buy a wristband for each child to have unlimited use of inflatables ($12) 

    Purchase Carnival Tickets! 
  2. Buy a Wristband! 

    A wristband will allow unlimited use for your child to play on inflatables. Each child must have his/her own wristband.  

    Purchase a Wristband for Carnival 
  3. Buy Prize Drawing Tickets! (Available in-person the week of Carnival)

    Buy tickets to enter in various prize raffle drawings! The more tickets you buy, the greater your chances of winning!!

    **You can buy 2 white tickets for $1! 

    Insider tips:

    * Preorder tickets AND print labels with your name/phone number so you can label your tickets in advance.
    * If you prefer that we print your labels, purchase the label option when purchasing your raffle tickets (only $10)

    Purchase Raffle Tickets for Prize Drawings! 

  4. Donate Items for the Prize Drawings! Parents can purchase items from the Amazon Wish List for prize drawings. There are hundreds of items on the wish list and they all ship directly to Carnival!

    Purchase from our Amazon Wish List 

  5. Donate In-Kind Items: Parents can make in-kind donations, either on their own behalf or on behalf of their company.  Examples of in-kind donations include: water, soda, paper goods, small toys with company logos for the game prizes, etc.

    Contact Courtney Prochaska to Coordinate In-Kind Donations

  6. Donate Food Items: The Carnival already has lots of yummy food items lined up, but they still need donations of: Corn Dogs, Nachos, and Sausage on a Stick. 

    Contact Sinead Tierney to Coordinate Food Donations

  7. Bake Something for the Bake Sale! Sign up to bake something for Carnival!

  8. Let Us Borrow Your Ice Chest: Carnival requires LOTS of ice chests. Sign up to let us borrow your ice chest.

    Sign Up to Lend Your Ice Chest

  9. Volunteer to Help Set-Up or Tear Down Carnival (coming soon!)

  10. Work YOUR Shift! 

    Each child's parent will be responsible to work a shift during carnival (so, if you have 2 children at Wilchester, your family will be assigned 2 shifts to work). Carnival only works when everyone chips in to help, so it is important that you work your shift! If there is a conflict, it is YOUR responsibility to find a replacement.


What are the Important Dates to Remember??

Thank You Green Png, Transparent Png

As a busy September comes to a close we want to thank the following volunteers and committees for their hard work at WCE this month.  They are truly helping to make this "A Year for the Ages!"

Our Homeroom Coordinators Cassie Greenway and Courtney Robertson for all of their hard work behind the scenes working with this year's homeroom parents and for leading another great homeroom parent training meeting at the end of August.  

The Birthday Marquee Coordinator Lisa Hodges for overseeing the sales of the birthday marquees and for working with the front office to get those names on the birthday marquee this month and the rest of the school year.  We know how excited kids are to see their names on the marquee!

Our new Social Media Coordinator Annie McQueen for helping keep us all informed of what's happening around WCE. And there is alot to keep us informed about!  

The PGP/GT Liaisons for organizing and hosting a Bendwood Parents Meeting at WCE.  This was a great chance for parents to get their questions answered and to learn more about the Spiral program: CrystalLee Potts, Emily Raines, Shayla Russell.

Odyssey of the Mind Chair Mariju Wille for hosting a very informative Odyssey of the Mind information session and helping to spread the word about OM!

The newly formed Internal Needs Committee (Brandi Stanton, Ashleigh Davis and Ashley Kunco) and the heart of Wilchester, Amanda Dikdan, for the work they have already done supporting the WCE community. And a big thanks to everyone at WCE who has donated snacks and hygiene packs this month!

Thank you again to everyone for helping make this truly "A Year for the Ages"!
