What is Carnival?

Carnival is our biggest fundraising event of the year – and it is open to the public.

Each year on a Sunday in the middle of October, we host our Carnival fundraiser. There are games, prizes, food and drink, a bake sale, live music, jugglers, magicians, costumes, a craft sale, raffle drawings, a silent auction, and much more! Enrolled Parents (and often Alumni), help to put on this event. Many adults and children come in costume. Returning students count the days from the start of the year until Carnival.

Silent auction

Bid on great products and services to support Parents Nursery School at the carnival. All proceeds go to fund the school. This online auction is for everyone to participate; the bidding session will end at midnight on October 21st. The physical item should be picked up the next day on the 22nd, the digital item will be emailed to the winners. We will also host an indoor auction on the Carnival day.

Bid here!

To donate goods for Carnival (or our Spring Gala), please get in touch with our fundraising chair.

Join us for the fun!
