Fall Festival 101

The Fall Festival is a wonderful family day, and will be held this year on Sunday, October 11, 2015.  There are game booths, food booths, entertainment, dinner in the gym, 3 on 3 basketball and much, much more!  There are booths and games for all ages, making this a true family event.


What are the tickets used for? 

Booths and food are paid for with tickets, which can be purchased in advance or on the day of the Fall Festival at the ticket booth. 


Do I need to volunteer?

Yes!  Each family is required to work a specified time slot at a booth (adult volunteers only).  It takes over 300 volunteers the day of the festival to make everything work.  This is an excellent way to meet other families and a quick way to get involved.


Who runs the booths?

A parent booth chair is in charge of all aspects of that booth.


Telegrams- what are they?

Telegrams are pieces of paper that moms, dads, friends, siblings or grandparents can write a message on to say “I love you”, “I’m proud of you!”, or “You’re cool”.  They come with different types of treats depending on what type of telegram you want.  Each family will receive a packet of telegrams, sent home through their child, to fill out and purchase.  There will be a table the week prior to the festival and a booth at the festival to turn them in or buy more.  They will also be available on the website.  During the week following Fall Festival, these “Telegrams” are delivered to the students of SAS.


Tokens-what are they?

Tokens (grey plastic) are given out at many of the booths during the festival.  For winning or completing something, your child will receive a token.  When you have a handful of these, your child can go to the Prize Booth and buy prizes with the tokens they have won.


What else do I need to do?

We would love for you to donate Silly String and Confetti Eggs for two of our most popular booths. Please send those items in through your child’s homeroom.

Also, we are asking that each family donate 2 cakes for the cake walk. Any cakes will do ––homemade or store bought.  For those with a knack for decorating there is a cake decorating contest!! 

This year, we are bringing back a popular booth that will not be possible without goodies from you. We are asking that each family donate store bought or homemade individually packaged cookies, brownies, or small pastries. (1 or 2 items per package)


Where do I get more information?

You will receive a Fall Festival blast each Thursday, highlighting different information each week.  Also, check the website for forms to download or more information to see.  Tickets and telegrams will be sold the week leading up to the Festival so, be looking for a table outside of the school.  If you have any questions or need more information, email the Fall Festival Chair people, Terri Guhl  and Jeanette Sweany.


The most important thing for you to do­­ is to go to the Fall Festival and have a memorable day with your family!!
