The Fisher Elementary School transformed into a fun-packed family carnival on March 13 as the Fisher PAC hosted its annual Fisher Family Fun Carnival.
During the event, classrooms inside Fisher Elementary were transformed into a miniature carnival, featuring many games and activities featured at most big-name traditional carnivals.
Kids could enjoy fishing in the Fishing Derby, create works of art through a spin art set up, play a game of “Teacher of Fortune,” and more.
Various raffle rooms were also set up across the school where kids could win everything from a Nintendo DS to an American Girl doll.
The annual carnival is one of the largest fundraising activities for the Fisher PAC. According to Fisher Carnival chair Nancy Niles, this year’s Fisher Family Fun Carnival took in $6,500.
Niles noted the money the Fisher PAC raises from its fundraisers and fundraising events goes towards funding educational enrichments to the students at the Fisher Elementary School.
According to the Fisher PAC’s website, the organization has raised money and funded a number of classroom enrichment projects over the years, including the addition of smart boards and projectors to every classroom.
Funds raised by the PAC also goes to funding various after-school activities at the school, including the Family Field Day and Family Science Night at the Fisher Elementary School.
