Carnival is the PTA’s biggest fundraiser of the year, and 80% of the net proceeds go directly to our classrooms! The success depends on the support we get from our family and friends. There are several donation levels to choose from. You can sponsor as a family, individual, or business. Please feel free to solicit donations from your employer. You can purchase a sponsorship online HERE or print out and complete the sponsorship form and return it to the front desk. No donation is too small! Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Thank You, Spooktacular Art Contestants and Decorating Committee!
Thank you to the talented young artists who participated in the Spooktacular Art Contest! Every entrant created frighteningly fabulous art. One lucky winner will be announced very soon and will have their art featured on a Spooktacular tote bag!
Special thanks as well to our Carnival Decorating Committee, chaired by Angela Halasyamani and Veronica Rayo. Their team did a scary-good job decorating our hallways!
Additionally, we would like to thank Kristie Belding, previous Carnival Decorating Chair, for her years of service! We are grateful that she used her talents to bring fall fun to our hallways through the years, and we can’t wait to see what she does for this year’s Haunted House.
The scary truth is, Carnival just wouldn’t happen without a horde of helpers. If you’re looking for a fun and easy way to get involved, here’s your chance! Signing up to help out at your child’s classroom’s booth is simple. Just click THIS LINK, scroll down to find your teacher’s name, then pick a time slot that works for you!
We also need volunteers before, during, and after the Carnival to make it a success for our school. Opportunities include pre-staging, set-up, break down, first aid trained persons, and more. Questions? Email email@example.com.
Wristband & BooBucks Pre-Sale and Alumni Wristband Sale
Skip the ticket lines on Carnival day and get your wristbands NOW! Travis Carnival wristbands are $25 and only available through pre-order, which ends on October 18. The wristbands & Boo Bucks will be delivered to your child’s classroom during the week prior to Carnival. Each wristband allows the wearer to get the whole Carnival experience — Kids play at all booths (except “Trunk or Treat”) as many times as they want! Food and drinks are NOT included with the wristbands. Food, drinks and “Trunk or Treat” will require Boo Bucks (tickets), which can also be purchased by pre-order or at the Carnival. Order online HERE!
Carnival Wristband = $25 (pre-sale only)
Carnival Boo Bucks $10 = 24 Boo Bucks (day of Carnival $10 = 20 Boo Bucks)
New: Alumni Wristbands
The Travis Carnival is spooky fun for not only our Travis family, but for every child in our neighborhood. This year we are offering our alumni at Hogg and other local schools a chance to purchase wristbands at our pre-order price of $25! Please spread the word to siblings, friends, and neighbors to buy a wristband online. All alumni wristbands are pre-sale only and will be available for will-call pick up the day of the carnival. Click HERE to order an alumni wristband.
Calling all cars! Decorate your car’s trunk to match a theme you choose (please, nothing too scary). Keep it simple, OR go all out! From 11am-2pm children will be invited to “trunk-or-treat” around all the trunks that will be located in the staff parking lot. Please note, you do not have to stand by your car for the entire four hours! We will have helpers to assist you! There is a $5 entry fee per car. We encourage everyone to sign up for this attraction, as it will bring in much-needed funds for our school! To reserve your spot, sign-up HERE. Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bring Your Own Water Bottle (BYOWB)
This year’s carnival will make progress toward a more eco-friendly event, with no plastic water bottles! We are encouraging everyone to BYOWB (bring your own water bottle), and the Spirit Store will also be selling stainless steel Travis water bottles at Carnival. There are even more eco-friendly surprises to come — we are striving for progress, not perfection!
Sponsor a Teacher’s Zen Moment
Our incredible teachers are what Carnival is about, so let’s show them some love during this year’s Carnival! Click HERE to sponsor chair massages in the Zen Den Spa (aka Teachers’ Lounge). Your $15 contribution gives a teacher or staff member a 10 minute chair massage. ALL teachers and staff will be sent a sign-up to reserve their spot. Please note, you can send your child’s teacher a note letting them know you’ve made a donation in their honor, but you cannot direct your donation specifically - it will go toward covering the cost of the massages. Questions? Email email@example.com.
