Fun Fair Is Coming!

Chávez Auction Is Live 
Now through March 8, you can place your online bids for the Chávez auction! We have tons of great items this year, including Comedy Club passes, a diamond pendant, a tie dye party, and more! The proceeds stay right here to support the PTO. We use these funds for things like the Fall Dance, recognition for Safety Patrol, Chávez-wide activities, and teacher appreciation. 

One Week Until Fun Fair

When: March 7, 10 AM – 2 PM
What: The Fun Fair features carnival games, face painting, food, and fun for the whole family!
Who: All Chávez families are welcome! Each student gets 5 free tickets. 
How you can help:

  • Volunteer: The Volunteer sign up form is available! Most slots are 1 hour, which gives you plenty of time to volunteer and then hop back into the fair fun! We need about 30-40 volunteers each hour to keep the Fun Fair running. No experience is needed and everyone is welcome! HIgh schoolers looking for volunteer hours are welcome to sign up as well!
  • Bring 2 Liter Bottles of Soda. We need MORE bottles for the 2 Liter toss game. Drop them off in the cafeteria this week or bring them with you to the Fun Fair.

Hello! I became a part of the PTO 2 years ago when I chaired the Fun Fair. I love working with the PTO to continue to build strong school-community connections and encourage the many wonderful aspects of the Chavez community. My husband, Carlos, and I have one daughter, Penny (DLI 2nd Grade) and two dogs, 10 year old Daria and our puppy, Coco. As a family, we enjoy travelling and working on our butterfly and vegetable gardens. I’m a technical writer at Epic and in my free time I’m the president of my neighborhood association and one of the leaders of the Madison chapter of Box of Balloons. I’m looking forward to getting to know you!
