The event is organized by the school’s Parent Advisory Council (PAC).

According to Principal Jeremy Tammi, proceeds from the carnival are used to meet school needs – for example, technology, books and field trips for students.

Carnival games were set up throughout the gymnasium, while one classroom was set aside for the cake walk, another for bingo and a third for prizes.

In addition, food and beverages were served in the cafeteria.

The carnival games included duck pond, tic tac toe, fish pond, apple darts, hole in one, crazy board, bumper car, dice game, leap frog, coin roll, egg roll, plinko and pop toss.
