Pequenakonck Elementary School hosts annual Harvest Fair
Pequenakonck Elementary School hosted its annual Harvest Fair on Saturday at the school. The event, organized by the PQ PTO, raises funds to support enrichment programming and activities for students in grades K through 5.
"The kids and families look forward to [the Harvest Fair] every fall," said Liz Bridges, co-president of the PQ PTO. "The fair acts as the largest fundraiser for the PQ PTO to put towards our students’ enrichment. We’d like to thank everyone in our community who helped make our annual Harvest Fair a huge success. Between the local businesses that donated gift cards for our raffle, to the parents who made raffle baskets, and the parent and student volunteers who ran the games, we couldn’t have done it without your support."
The fair, which took place from noon to 3:00 p.m., featured bounce houses, carnival games, food and drinks, a DJ and raffles. In a note sent to families last week, principal Roy Martin said, “we are happy to invite the community to the facility for the day! Thank you for all the support that makes this event possible!”
During the fair, the 5th grade social committee hosted a bake sale to raise money for the 5th grade class. Funds raised help to defray the costs for social activities, graduation gifts, the class’ year-end breakfast and lawn signs that every 5th grade family receives just prior to 5th grade graduation. Historically, the bake sale is the committee’s largest fundraiser.
