Pumpkin Patch

Thursday, October 22, 2015 (1:30p - 5:00p)    

We need gift certificates for local business or donated items for the silent auction.  If you have a connection with someone who works for a company who can donate (that is local) we would love it!!! Or if you personally have concert tickets, rounds of golf, surf lessons or anything cool that you want to donate that would work too.

We need several people  to help with set up and take down and we need lottttts of easy-up tents!   They want to have the class pumpkins out in the middle this year...so we need to have enough tents to cover them all in case some have elements that might melt in the sun.  Please email if you have one..OR MORE! 

Thanks for the help... this is going to be a great year for the Pumpkin Patch and we appreciate all the great parents who partner with Smith Elementary to make fun, profitable fundraisers! Go Smith!!!!

Room Parent Info: The Room Parents are responsible for a decorated class pumpkin for the Pumpkin Patch.  You will receive a flyer from us with more information on the Pumpkin Patch.  

The pumpkin needs to be decorated, but NOT carved or punctured.  Carving or puncturing will cause the pumpkin to deteriorate.  In the past, classes have gotten very creative by adding gift cards or other enticements to make their pumpkin a real money-maker.  This should a be a very fun, artistic, creative project, so feel free to hand it off to someone in the class who can do that.  Sometimes, the teachers want the students to participate.  Remember to ask for help.  You do not have to be artistic for this job.  You will need to get started on this project very soon!  Discuss this with your teacher on how they best want to handle it.
