Fall festivals raise needed money

locust grove elementary fall festivalThe air is cooler and it’s hard to believe but fall festivals are upon us.  Elementary school fall festivals are a great source of entertainment for children and parents.  It is also a good source of revenue for the PTO/PTA organization whose funds are used to not only put on this event but other events throughout the school year.

My son came home about 4 weeks ago and was very excited that the fall festival at his school was coming up soon.  He had a flyer that the teachers had given out at school to let everyone know the date so we immediately posted it on the refrigerator.  (My wife and I also put it in our phone calendars)

The weeks counted down and this coming Friday, the festival is here.  There will be inflatable bouncy rides, cotton candy, various other games, and local vendors showing off their products.  This is a great way for local businesses to meet with their potential clients and for clients to meet businesses owners.  It is also a good way for the PTO to raise much-needed money by selling spots for the local businesses to set up stands or tents.

With budgets getting tighter in all schools, the PTO is having to pick up more and more of the duties to help the children  The PTO will be selling other merchandise with the school mascot.  There will be t-shirts, hoodies, bracelets, and more.  All of the money raised by the PTO will be used to provide further activities and educational opportunities for the children.  We support the PTO and we hope you do as well.
