Carnival Planning Committee Information

SPRING 2017

 

Friday, April 21st from 5:30 – 8:00 p.m.

Near the end of April we celebrate all of the fun things about SPRING!  All Norge Elementary School Teachers and Staff Members, Parents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and siblings over the age of 15 are welcome to volunteer for the Spring Carnival Committee.

Volunteers work hard to arrange all plans for our largest fundraiser which include: organizing, setting up, staffing and cleaning up after the Spring Carnival, baking a pie or cake for the Cake Walk, or making telephone calls to local businesses for our amazing Silent Auction.

The event includes bounce houses, farm animal petting area, pony rides, pie throwing contest, dunk tank, pie eating contest, Karaoke, the Norge Orchestra and many, many more fun events for the whole family.  You can also enjoy dinner (Chick-fil-A and many other yummy treats). On the day of the event volunteers help set up stations, staff those stations in shifts, and assist with ticket and food sales.

Join us on the following dates to see how you can dedicate your time and talents to make the Carnival a HUGE SUCCESS!

Norge Celebrates Constitution Day

On Friday, September 16, Norge Elementary School celebrated Constitution Day with a special Beep Beep News Constitution program.   The five fifth grade SCA leaders were watched live in each classroom as they told Norge students and staff why the Constitution is important to us as a nation as well as why it is important to them as  students at Norge Elementary. Additionally, the fifth grade recorders played patriotic music for the program.
