ptoqueen! Yes, it is me. I tried to e-mail to your profile address, but it bounced back. How are things in Bourne?

How is your outdoor classroom? I talked to one of our teachers about that and he was really interested in how well it was working.

Marble fishing is picking up marbles with your toes. We had two swimming pools going. Three kids per pool. Twenty seconds per game. We had it outside so there wasn't a big mess.

The gold mine is swimming pools with packing peanuts and prizes. It's great for the preschool kids.

Last year we had 438 K-4. This year we are over 500!!. The rest of our money comes from corporate cash donation, spaghetti dinner, silent auction, and general store. Our total net was $20K and we were through by the second weekend of October.

Wow Potts! We netted around $15k last year. It was a record for us. In addition to the royaliy contest we have a ham supper, plus the games, and we do pretty well with our prize walk. Last year they did Christmas Baskets for $5.00 per walk (as opposed to $.25-$1.00), every spot was full. It nearly doubled the average profit of the walk. We have cakes too, but more donations so we just call it a prize walk. We have about 450 students. We do our festival(just the games and if we have enough parents and prizes we do the walk, also concessions) 2 hours during the day and then again that evening for the whole community.
