The entrance to EDW

Your help is needed for the 2014 EDW Community Carnival!
Friday, October 10, 6:00 - 8:30 p.m.

Attend the carnival – and have fun!
We're bringing back the carnival games, popcorn and pizza, silent auction and giant hamster balls!  This event is a great way to show your Bobcat spirit, spend time with other EDW families, and raise necessary money for our school.

By volunteering, you help create a sense of community at EDW, show your kids that you are engaged in their learning, assist in raising money for the extras that make our school great and have FUN! And, shifts are only 1.5 hours - leaving you time to spend with your family.

Donate to the Silent Auction
We are especially interested in silent auction items that are family-friendly and promote community spirit:  consider things like hosting a boat cruise or dinner party, or donating items from your small business. Business donations are recognized on our thank you wall, on a list-serv announcement and in the Bobcat. Please contact Tanya at Tanya.r.anderson@outlook.com or Tammy at tambobheiple@yahoo.com to donate.

Donate books, beverages or baked goods
Help us with the carnival by donating your gently used books as prizes for Bowling for Books. We are also in need of donated bottles of water, cans of soda or juice pouches/boxes/cans for the concession area. Store-purchased baked goods are needed for the cake walk. Books and beverages may be donated at any time by bringing them to the EDW office. Baked goods may be dropped off in the office the morning of the carnival.
