Winter Fest
Come enjoy a night full of food, fun and family
Friday Nov. 19 from 6:30-9 pm
FREE crafts and activities
A Silent Auction (a good opportunity to buy Christmas gifts)
Get pictures taken with Santa
Choir performance by some of our students at Harvest

The PTA could use your help with manning the booths and donating items for the silent auction gift baskets. Each grade is going to have boxes in their classrooms for donations. If you’d like to donate items, drop them off at the appropriate classroom.
Kindergarten: Outdoor activities/toys (ex-chalk, balls, jump ropes)
1st grade: Children’s books (Scholastic book orders might be a great place to find some of these)
2nd grade: Movie night (ex-movies, popcorn)
3rd grade: Children’s toys (ex-Littlest Pet Shop, Matchbox Cars, Puzzles, Coloring books)
4th grade: Game night (ex-Puzzles, Card Games, Board Games)
5th grade: Christmas theme (ex-advent calendar, decorations, cards)
6th grade: Chocolate (ex-gift certificates, anything chocolate really)

These are all just suggestions. Feel free to be creative and if you have a different theme you’d like to create a basket for to donate we’d love to have that too. Thank you for your support of Harvest Elementary PTA.
