Paul Banks carnival great success

The Paul Banks Winter Carnival was a great place for families to warm up and have fun after the Winter Carnival Parade. The school gym was transformed into a kids haven for the afternoon; complete with bouncy house, face painting, food, games, prizes and more.

The Paul Banks PTA would like to thank the many parent and teacher volunteers who took time out of their busy schedules to make this happen. Thanks to The Homer Emblem Club for making cotton candy and snow cones, Head Start for running the cake walk, HoPP for getting the eye-catching Radio Flyer Wagon replica parked in front of the school, Kachemak Wholesale for ordering the food and having it all ready for us to pick up, Alaska USA Federal Credit Union for providing volunteers, Ulmers and Fat Olives.

We appreciate all the families who attended the carnival too. Not only did the kids have a blast, this event is one of Paul Banks PTAs biggest fundraisers of the year and allows us to help pay for programs such as swim lessons and after school activities for students.
