PAPAPalooza Pumpkin Festival Tonight!

We are excited about the upcoming PAPAPalooza! Pumpkin Festival on October 19th.   There is a lot going on to prepare for PAPAPalooza!  We cannot have a great event without your participation and help.  All the proceeds will go to PAPA clubs, participating departments, and the PTSO.   It will benefit all of PAPA!

One way you can help is by donating gift cards/certificates for the Mystery Bag Fundraiser. Here’s a link to the donation form:

Don’t forget auditions for the show that will take place October 3-4th during both lunches in the Choir/Orchestra room.

Make sure you check out the bulletin boards around school for information about the carnival and contests.

Everyone is invited to show up in costume.  The costume contest will be judged and winners announced at the conclusion of the show.

There will also be a baking contest following the “Pumpkin” theme.  Sign up for the contest (staff and students) and get more information in the front office.   Extended deadline to sign up is Friday, October 5th.  A pumpkin will be provided to use in your recipe on Monday, October 15th.
