Spring Carnival - Friday, June 1st - Come One, Come All!

Brassfield’s first Spring Carnival will be held on Friday, June 1st in the Lower Field @ 5-8 PM. Bring the family out to enjoy inflatables, games, food, prizes, face painting, a cake walk, a dunk booth and more.

Donations: Thank you families for your generous donations! You too can sign-up to provide carnival donations (like small prizes, candy, cakes, soda, water, etc). Donations can be dropped off in the school lobby through Wednesday, May 16th.

Volunteers can sign-up now to run a game. We are offering 2 shifts during the event to allow everyone time to work and enjoy the carnival with their family. Without our volunteers, we will not be able to run all the game stations we have put together, so please sign-up and encourage other wake county approved volunteers to secure their spot early. Grab a friend and work a station together! It is NOT too late to seek approval. Find out more at the game volunteer link.

Games: Most games will take 1-2 tickets, with a few free games. To help you plan, one child will be able to play each game once with 20 tickets. Save money and order now!

Pre-Sale Tickets are encouraged. You save money and it will help us gauge attendance, helping us to have enough food and prizes. Pre-Sale tickets are available at a discount ($4 for 10 tickets, $6 for 15 tickets, $10 for 25 tickets or $20 for 50 tickets), by returning your pre-order form with payment (in a sealed envelope) or during afternoon carpool on 5/15 or 5/30, or Movie Night on 5/18.

The Spring Carnival is a PTA sponsored event.

What is the class size mandate?

The maximum individual K-3 class sizes will drop from 24 students to: K: 18, 1st: 16, and 2nd: 17 students. For a year round school like ours, imagine pulling 2 students from the K class as they graduate to 1st and then adding one back when they rise to 2nd. Children need some stability and consistency. Pulling one or two kids from a track and switching them year to year and possibly from track to track will have broad reaching implications for families with older siblings.

Graduation Committee Request

The 5th Grade Graduation Committee is looking for a wireless photo printer to borrow for the days of the event (June 7for Track 1 and June 29 for Tracks 2,3,and 4). We’d like to do a photo booth for the kids and then be able to print out the photos for them to take home. (We will provide the photo paper.) If you have a printer that you are willing to lend us for the event, please email Melinda Hemphill. Thank you!!

School Wide Volunteer Opportunities

We have many volunteer opportunities throughout the school year, and we welcome all help even if it's 1 hour, 1 day, once a month or once a year! Every little bit helps further our goal to improve the kids experiences at school and their educational opportunities. Next week, we'll be sending out a link and information regarding our PTA positions that are still open. Please click the heading to access volunteer opportunities available throughout the coming year, and we appreciate your service!
