What you need to know
In order to join the festival, you must register. Click the link here to do so. If you fill out the form later than noon on the day of the Festival, we cannot guarantee we can get you the information you need before the festival starts but we will try. You may register right up until the end of the festival.
Some activities require prep before the festival. Please see the section on 'Getting Ready for the Festival' on this page for details.
The festival will be open from 4:30pm-7:30pm Friday, October 30. Links to the self-paced activities will stay up through the end of the weekend, but all live activities will take place only while the festival is open.
Parents, please consider signing up for a 30 minute time slot to help with the Festival. We need volunteers to monitor Zoom breakout rooms. You won't need a personal Zoom account, you will just sign into the event's zoom call. Instructions will be given to volunteers ahead of time. In some cases this will entail just keeping the kids somewhat behaved. In other cases, it will mean running an activity. See the Signup page for more information on what help we need.
Getting Ready for the Festival
The following activities require some prep before the festival starts if you want to enjoy them.
The Costume Corner - if you want to show off a costume, you will need to have a costume.
Roblox Water Park - if you want to play this game, you will need a Roblox account. You can sign up for free at www.roblox.com. It seems like the school-issued Chromebooks will not be able to access this game.
Craft Room - if you want to do the crafts, you will need supplies.
For Mrs. Ryan's live craft session, you will need:
paper (colors if possible, or white paper and coloring implements)
For the self-paced crafts, there are a variety of supplies and it depends on the craft. Almost all of them need the following:
paper (usually they use white, black, and orange, but sometimes pink, red, green, etc. too)
glue (often a glue stick will do, but sometimes white glue is better)
drawing implements (crayons, pens, colored pencils, etc.)
A few of the crafts need the following:
something to draw a circle on your paper
The following items are only needed for one craft:
green and brown pipe cleaners
empty TP rolls
black popsicle sticks (can be painted or with a sharpie pen)
Fall Festival Activities
This is a list of activities we would like to provide at the festival. This list is subject to change, and depends on having enough parents to help run the festival. If you are interested in volunteering to host one of these events, or in any other way, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Craft Room - During the festival, Mrs. Ryan will host a couple short sessions of Monster Corner Bookmark making. This will be a live Zoom room open at 5:15 and 6:00, for about a half hour each time. To get to this, click Mrs. Ryan's Bitmoji character. Whenever Mrs. Ryan isn't hosting a live event, there will be a self-paced set of YouTube tutorials with various crafts. To get to this, click the picnic bench.
Singing with Mr. Diamond - This is a Zoom call that will be open at specific times. Join to sing a song with Mr. Diamond, though everyone else will have to remain on mute. He will be accepting requests via the chat box. To get to this, click Mr. Diamond's Bitmoji character.
Costume Corner - This is a Zoom call that will be open for 10 minutes at the top of each hour. During that time, anyone who wants can come show off their costume and see what others have dressed up as. To get to this, click the 'Costume Mayhem' flyer.
