Prairie Elementary Carnival

Prairie Elementary Carnival
Friday, April 26, 5:00 – 8:00 pm
Families welcome! All students must be accompanied by an adult. Activities are suitable for children under the age of 12.

Many years ago, Prairie’s parent group hosted carnivals in the spring that were fundraising events for the school. This year’s carnival is not a fundraiser. Instead, it is a free event, planned with the spirit of giving back to our families and saying “thank you” for supporting their child’s education.

A group of about 10 teachers got together and started thinking of ways to do something special for our kids and families to celebrate nearing the end of another great school year. This crew has put in countless hours already, excited to give our kids this awesome night! Our final Discovery Room theme encompasses a carnival vibe, so they thought this would be the perfect way to kick-off our final Discovery Room adventure for the year.

Many community sponsors have provided donations to help make this event a success. Numerous games and activity booths will be available to entertain the students. There will be inflatables, prizes and treats. In addition to traditional carnival games, students can get a book at the “Book Walk,” and win a big soda at the Ring Toss. In the cafeteria, students can play Loteria, which is a traditional game from Mexico, similar to Bingo. There will be food trucks on-site for families to purchase something to eat.

An event like this requires many volunteers. Community organizations and student groups from our High School and MN West, as well as many of our Prairie staff are all slated to help run this event. We are grateful for all of the district and community support that has been generated. It is sure to be a great night for all!
