Halloween Mini Fair
DATE: October 30, 2015
TIME: 10:00 a.m. - 1:50 p.m.
Early Dismissal - No Aftercare
Preparations are in full swing and excitement is building for the OLPS annual Mini Fair, which will be held on Friday, October 30, 2015.
We need the help of all of our families to ensure the financial success of the fair and to make it a great day for the children. We will once again have inflatables and we hope that you will purchase a Pay-One-Price wristband for your child. Remember, there are designated time slots for all of the grades and your younger siblings are welcome to participate at their appropriate age level. Simply purchase their wristband on the same order form as your OLPS student. The cost of the wristband is $8 when purchased in advance and $10 the day of the fair. Those students purchasing a wristband in advance will be allowed to wear flip flops or crocs to school the day of the Mini Fair. Orders for wristbands are due in the school office by 3:00 p.m. Thursday, October 29.
There will be a Slide, two Obstacle Courses and several
Jumps. Three designated 50 minute time slots are
assigned for each group, as well as an open slot from
1:00 - 1:50 p.m. for all grades.
PK3, PK4, and Kdg 10:00 – 10:50 a.m.
1st – 3rd Grades 11:00 – 11:50 a.m.
4th – 8th Grades 12:00 – 12:50 p.m.
All Grades 1:00 - 1:50 p.m.
A pay-one-price wristband will be required to utilize
the inflatables. The cost is $8 per student purchased in
advance and $10 the day of the fair. Those students
purchasing a wristband in advance will be allowed to wear flip flops or crocs to school the day of the Mini Fair. The purchased wristbands will not be sent home,
but will be given to the child the day of the event. Orders are due Thursday, October 29, by 3:00 p.m.
The Major Raffle tickets have been sent home. We are raffling two tickets to the December 21st SAINTS versus Detroit Lions football game, as well as two buffets at Allegro and a one night stay at the Hilton Garden Inn in the French Quarter. Each child has received 20 tickets at a price of $1 each. Each class that sells a total of $1,000 will earn a trip (or to an age appropriate activity) to Airline Skate World.
We are asking each student to donate $5 towards the cost of purchasing the prizes for the booths. Simply send your $5 donation to your child’s homeroom teacher in an envelope marked “Mini Fair Prize Donation.” In lieu of the $5 donation, we are asking Mrs. Suebe’s seventh grade class to send in cakes for the Cake Walk and Mrs. Dupas’ fourth grade class to send in sweets for the Sweet Booth. By all means, if any of you are bakers, please join in the fun and send a cake for the cake walk or treats for the sweets booth.
Each class is asked to solicit a booth sponsor, whose name will be prominently displayed at the booth. The cost to be a booth sponsor is $150. This can be a business that is willing to offer their support to the school, grandparents, or even a number of parents combined to show support of their child’s class. The deadline to apply as a booth sponsor is October 28 so that the appropriate signs can be made.
Our list of businesses and families that have already agreed to sponsor our Mini Fair either as a T Shirt or Booth Sponsor continues to grow: Wayne Landry; Jeanne Nunez Juneau; Guy McInnis; Richie Lewis; Ray Garofalo; Tony Melerine; Randy Nunez; Perry Nicosia; Jaylynn Bergeron Turner; Gulf Coast Bank; Port Ship Service; The Balcony; Sheriff Jimmy Pohlmann; Louis Pomes; Nathan Gorbaty; Gordon, Carol and Ethan Willhoft; DeLaRonde Medical Center; Tims Marine; Guillot’s Supplies; Campo’s Marina; Havana Oyster Co.; First Bank and Trust; Elyse Dysart; Casey Hunnicutt; Greg Ruiz; Cindi Meyer; Southern Digital; Armstrong Family; Coastal Air Conditioning and Heating, The Parents of the Seventh Grade Precious One’s, and the Cochran Family. Our heartfelt thanks to these businesses and families for supporting our school. Please remember that if you work for a company like Phillips 66 or Valero, these companies will match your financial gift to us. Please check with your Human Resource Officer to see if you qualify for matching funds from your company.
Finally, we would like to ask your support in volunteering to help in your class’ assigned booth.
Giving of your time for just a half hour or so would allow everyone the opportunity to enjoy the fair with their children. Please fill in the form above and send it to your child’s homeroom teacher.
Students may not be checked out before 2:00 p.m. in their homeroom. Please do not ask.
Students are expected to help clean up after the party. Therefore, a clean-up bell will ring at 1:50 p.m. Teachers and students have instructions for the areas to be cleaned by each grade. When the 2:00 p.m. bell rings, the children will return to their classroom for roll check and dismissal by the homeroom teacher. Parents may go directly to the classroom to pick up their children at 2:00 p.m. Children remaining will be dismissed from the car line following prayer. Children will be released to parents only. If a grandparent, neighbor, or car pool driver is picking up your child, please send the form below with each child on the day of the Halloween Mini Fair. If there is no written note, the child will have to be checked out through the office. EDC will not operate on October 30, 2015.
