Sandcastle Academy (An Accredited Private School) had their annual fundraising carnival on Wednesday night. It is the only fundraiser that the school does, so it is very important for the students.
I was in charge of organizing the game booths, and I also was a balloon sculptor. Usually Miss Jana (pre-k Kindergarten teacher) does it the whole night, however, she couldn't stay so I took over for the last half of the carnival.
The booths included: Fishing pond, Fortune Teller, Spilt Milk, Chance, Craft Corner, Club Disco, Dunk Tank, big inflatable slide, Fishing Well and Face/Hair painting. There was also a Raffle with some really great donated prizes, a Prize Center, where the kids turned in their tickets for prizes, A Silent auction with even more really great donated prizes, a bake sale, and of course FOOD including: Hot Dogs, Chips, drinks, Snow cones and cotton candy.
The carnival lasted from 5:00 - 8:00 and we got there at 4:50 and stayed until about 8:30. A very fun night for a very incredible children.
I feel so fortunate that my kidlets are able to go to this school. I love that there are only 10-12 students per class, and that they are getting the attention that they need. Sandcastle Academy has and a great administration and wonderful teachers, who are obviously teaching for no other reason than they love it, and care about my children's education. I would recommend this school to anybody.

I'd heard they'd turned my old favorite movie theater into a school. I'm so glad it's a good fit for your little ones :)
