Horn School will host its annual Winter Carnival and Silent Auction on Saturday, Feb 6th! The Horn classrooms transform into carnival games, the Art Room into a relaxing cafe, and the evening ends in a fun-filed auction/raffle where everyone has the chance to win parties with a special teacher. We need volunteers for helping with games, working in the Hornet cafe, baking cakes, and baking for Hornet Cafe.
You can also sign up to request a buddy for your child (a Horn 5th-6th grade student that will chaperon your child) so they can experience the winter carnival without you, while you help us out.
Silent Auction Callers:
We are immediately looking for individuals who can help make phone calls for silent auction donations. If interested, please email John Carpenter via email@example.com.
Horn families are invited to donate items or services, theme baskets or make monetary contributions toward auction items. All donations should be delivered to Horn Office by Friday, January 22, to allow processing and inclusion in marketing.
