Spring Valley Elementary School will host its annual Fall Festival and Fundraiser 5:30-8:30 p.m., Friday , Oct. 19. This year's theme is "Spring Valley School -- How the West was Fun" with western, historical or explorer costume contest for all school ages.
"Our western night is going to be great this year with the addition of a roping station, miniature horses and a jail," said Todd Scheller, Parent-Teacher Club president. "If you are searching for a fall event that the whole family can attend and have fun, this is it."
Other activities will include game booths, face painting, bounce houses and prizes for all, including a cake walk and great festival food. Ocampo's Mexican Restaurant of Fresno will be providing tacos and burritos along with chips, salsa, beverages and desserts at reasonably prices.
While the students are having fun at the game booths and bounce houses, those who like to shop can bid on silent auction items including gift baskets by each class. There will be car care baskets, gift certificates and services as well as party baskets that will be available.
Hosted by the school's Parent-Teacher Club, the Fall Festival and fundraiser will benefit all Spring Valley students.
"Along with having fun and enjoying great food, your attendance helps in funding needed educational activities, on-campus needs and other classroom projects that are vital for every child's education," Scheller said. "We really appreciate all the support from our families, but also throughout the mountain communities."
"We hope everyone in our community will join us for the Fall Festival to have fun and enjoy the western theme of games, food and activities, but more importantly, help the school support our students all year long," said Kelli Bryant, school principal.
Spring Valley School is located on Road 200 just east of Highway 41.
