YELLOW BALLOON FAIR
What a celebration on Saturday! The sun was shining and our school was transformed into a joyful wonderland! Our community all came together to put on a wonderful, magical 37th Yellow Balloon Fair that was enjoyed by so many people!
Further updates coming once the YBF team has a chance to gather their thoughts, but thank you for your sticks and loose change, your lawns for signs, your handmade prizes, contributions to the raffle and auction, your willingness to rearrange schedules and make time to volunteer at the fair, and more!
A million thanks and congrats to the hard-working YBF team for their hours of work, for their leadership, for set up and clean up, for getting and managing student volunteers, for planning all the games, crafts and prizes, for marketing the fair, for the raffle and auction, for getting sponsorships, for planning, shopping and serving food…phew! Great Job TEAM!
There will be an opportunity for comments and suggestions about the fair in the End of Year Survey.
–>If you have a yard sign, please return it to CNS so it can be used again next year for the 48th Yellow Balloon Fair!
