The Roland-Story Parent Teacher Organization Carnival will be held Friday, Feb. 23, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Roland-Story Elementary school. This fun-filled evening has become an annual tradition for the community.
New this year at the carnival is the Photo Booth. Only costing 1 ticket per photo, kids can have their photos taken with friends and props while walking away with a print of their own to keep.
Also new this year, kids will receive a bag to contain all their goodies won at the carnival. All of your favorites, such as “Pie a Teacher,” the indoor inflatable obstacle course, balloon animals, Plinko, pop toss, and more will also be back.
Food will also be available for purchase from Eat It!, a local food truck owned by Doug and Melissa Loof.
Last year the event raised over $6,500 to support Roland-Story elementary and middle school students and teachers. Funds raised at the carnival are used to purchase classroom technologies, programmatic support, field trips and other needs not covered by school funds.
The PTO donated nearly $32,000 in technology, curriculum and classroom material to the elementary and middle schools last school year.
The 2018 PTO Carnival year proves to hold more fun and exciting raffle prizes including a mountain bike, a Trifecta pass to Blank Park Zoo, Living History Farms and the Science Center of Iowa, Story City Aquatic Center Family Season Pass (2018 summer), Instax camera, Furman Aquatic Center passes, Iowa Wild game tickets, Iowa Cubs baseball tickets, National Mississippi River Museum passes, and much more. More than 50 local businesses are sponsoring the 2018 event. Tickets are available at the door or can be pre-ordered through forms sent home with the elementary students.
