Venetia Valley School proudly hosts its Sixth Annual Venetia Valley School Fall Carnival and Supply Drive on Saturday, October 12, 2013 from 11am to 4pm. The Fall Carnival will feature an assortment of delicious food, games, jumpies and other kids’ activities along with live and local entertainment, face painting, henna tattoos, a cakewalk, pumpkin patch, and a raffle drawing. The event, located on campus at 177 North San Pedro Road in San Rafael is free and fun for the whole family. Family-friendly pricing for carnival games, rides and food.
“The Carnival fulfills important goals for our school,” says Carnival Event Coordinator Renee O’Hare. “The most urgent goal is to raise money for special programs such as music, Playworks and our teaching garden to counteract budget cuts and enhance classroom learning. But, just as important, we are bringing Venetia Valley families and the community together for a fun, social activity. We're involving the community and local businesses to help us strive for the success of their community school. And, it’s a great opportunity to educate people about the many ways to support our students and get involved at the school.”
