Larissa is finishing up her final week as an intern at CHS. Please join us in thanking her for her fine work and wish her luck in the big wide world.
Don’t miss out on the Stevens Elementary spring carnival coming up this Friday. The carnival will be featuring traditional carnival games such as; golf ball tub, water balloon toss, water squirt, nail hammering (safe, of course), stomp rocket, airplane toss, ring toss, cake walk (!!!), hoop shoot, air blaster (?), marble grab pond (formerly soap grab), fortune telling, face painting (get a unicorn, obvi), water ballooon launch, recycle race (teaching kids good habits), nut cracker (nut allergies beware). And for the little ones, hoop shoot, bean bag toss (a personal favorite) and toys in the hay.
In addition to carnival games, there will be a raffle for an e-100 razor electric scooter. This is a zero waste event – biodegradable materials will be used and composting/recycling bins will be convenient and encouraged.
I emailed with Susan Goubert, the coordinator of this event, who said, “The carnival is a fun way to promote community for the school & neighborhood. Proceeds from the event are used for student programs that directly support learning programs. This event is specially important amidst current budget cuts.”
Keep in mind, game tickets cost 25 cents, meals cost $8 (catering done by Flame Catering), raffle tickets are $2 a pop and the carnival will be held from 5-8 pm.
