MGS Needs Help for Spring Carnival

Metamora Herald spring trees

Spring is almost here! In Metamora, one way we celebrate is going to the annual Metamora Grade School Carnival. This event is a fantastically fun way to support the school and spend time with the kids. This year’s Foundation for Educational Excellence Spring Carnival will be held on Saturday, March 11th. The carnival is full of games and food and is a large contribution to the school’s funding for improvements.

The carnival is full of fun activities. For instance, multiple games to play and win prizes, face painting, a cake walk, and a silent auction.The booths are run by volunteers of parents and students and faculty.  All of these accumulated have helped the school in the past to raise $10,000, and that is money that wouldn’t be available otherwise. This year the school is asking for our help in making this event happen.

If you are interested in being a volunteer or donating money, Elisha Bachman is involved in getting volunteers and donations for the silent auction baskets, etc… Please contact Elisha at or call her at 208-8133 and she can provide you with all the information you need. The school needs donations of $2.00 to $5.00 for the carnival to help offset some of the money being spent. For those parents donating and sending money to school with your child, please turn in by January 30th. Thank you!
