Mark your calendars for Friday, March 11 – the Poly Drive March Madness Spring Carnival. The evening runs from 5:30 to 8 p.m.
Join us for an evening of fun sports games, minute-to-win-it games and the amazing prize room where you can redeem tickets for fabulous loot! Visit the gym where you’ll find pizza for purchase, silent auction baskets to browse and bid on, and a jail cell just waiting to be filled by Mr. Croff.
Silent auction basket items are needed for each classroom, as are parent volunteers to staff the classroom games for a shift or more. Room parents will continue to seek parents’ assistance with these areas. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Briana Bergeron or your class’s room parent.
Wristbands are $12 each before the carnival and $15 at the door. They will go on sale at the beginning of March. The collection buckets to Jail Mr. Croff will also be in classrooms at the beginning of March, so save up that extra change now!
Proceeds from this PTA-sponsored event will go toward increasing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) learning opportunities in and outside the classroom. We are also working to increase safety at Poly Drive by purchasing bumpers for the playground and snow removal equipment for our new sidewalks and entry.
