2016 Specific Carnival Information

We will have your favorite games, inflatables, prizes and really great food! Face painting, tattoos, raffle and new surprises! This is always one of our most fun and successful yearly fundraisers but we can’t do it without your help!

Sign Up Now!

Like last year, we will again be using an online system to have adults sign up directly for the job(s) they’re willing to work at for the Carnival. Here are a few pointers re: the sign-up process:

  • Please have each adult volunteer in your home complete a separate sign up.
  • We have set-up, clean-up and two shifts of games with various job opportunities. If you’re willing and able to help out for both shifts, feel free to sign up for two shifts (even though those shift overlap a bit in times – we’re doing the overlap so that Shift 2 people can come and relieve Shift 1 people as well as “learn” the job they’ll be doing). If you’d rather sign up for one shift now but you’re willing to do a second shift if needed, please be sure to check back in closer to the date and sign up for another shift.
  • Remember, the more people we have for set-up and clean-up, the faster things go.  If you're signing up for Shift 1, consider signing up to help with set-up; if you're signing up for Shift 2, considering signing up to help with clean-up.
  • If you have a child (or children) interested in volunteering, they must volunteer with an adult. (If your child is a responsible teenager, they can sign up on their own but should choose a job that has more than one person at that station – preferably one that has an adult working at it.)
  • On the sign up page, the number in parentheses shows how many spots we need to fill that one job.
  • If you have a certain job you’d like to do, sign up now! Those who sign up early will have more choices…but please know, we need all jobs filled!
  • If you sign up for a job, we are counting on you to cover that job.

If you have any problems using the online setup, please contact Anne Miller at baileyelementarypta@hotmail.com.

"All You Can Play" Wristbands

We will again be offering all-inclusive game wristbands for purchase in advance.   These wristbands will allow the wearer unlimited access to ALL games and inflatables (with the exception of the photo booth – wristband wearers can go through the photo booth one time and if they want to go through again, will need to pay with traditional tickets available for purchase the night of Carnival). 


That’s right!   You’ll be able to play all your favorite games or go through the inflatables as many times as you want!  The cost of each wristband is $25 and does not include any food items or Carnival Store items.   This offer is available for advanced purchase only. Wristbands will not be available for purchase the night of carnival.   As in the past, individual tickets for food and games will be for sale the night of carnival.


**NEW THIS YEAR: **  Wristbands will only be available for purchase in-person at the times listed below.   Please DO NOT send payment to school with your child – it will be returned to your child.   Also please note that we cannot replace lost wristbands, nor can we offer any refunds, so please keep them in a safe location until the night of the carnival.   



Monday, April 25 from 3:30-4:30 pm

Tuesday, April 26 from 9-9:30 am & 3:30-5:00 pm

Thursday, April 28 from 9-9:30 am & 5:00-7:00 pm



1 wristband = $25, 2 wristbands = $50,

3 wristbands = $75, 4 wristbands = $100


If writing a check, please make payable to “Bailey PTA”.


(Check acceptance policy: Checks must include name, address and telephone number of the person signing the check.  In the event that the check is not honored by the bank, the check writer will be required to reimburse the Bailey PTA for the value of the check in addition to paying a service charge and any assessed bank charges.)

Individual Tickets

Individual tickets will be available for purchase starting at 5:30 on the night of Carnival.  Tickets cost $.50 each.  


If your child doesn't have a wristband, games cost 1 to 6 tickets, depending on the game/activity.  (Most of our games fall in the 2-3 ticket category.)


These same tickets are what you use to purchase food at the carnival - wristbands don't cover your food.  Food/drinks cost between 1 ticket and 10 tickets, depending on the food.  Main dish options are 4 tickets up to 10 tickets, depending.  


We will have charts at ticket booths so you know how much games and food cost as well as pricing signs by the food offerings.


A book of 10 raffle tickets is being sent home with each student to sell the individual tickets for $1 each.  If you choose not to sell any tickets, simply return your unsold tickets to your classroom teacher.  Please return all cash, ticket stubs and unsold tickets to your teacher in the envelope provided by Wednesday, April 27.  You can get extra tickets in the office.


A complete list of prizes will be posted at school on the night of the carnival.  Winners need not be present to win.  A complete list of winners will be posted on the Bailey PTA website.

Silent Auction

Carnival News: The Bailey PTA is having a silent auction this year during the spring carnival! Each classroom has a sponsored basket theme. We need your help! Please donate an item (a cash contribution to purchase items is also helpful; send in a labeled envelope) to your child's classroom basket. Theme classroom baskets are listed below. Let's make these classroom sponsored baskets the BEST!


Are you crafty? We need one parent from each class to donate a "basket" to put the items in and to put the basket items together. Contact your child's teacher if you would like this awesome role! Items will be collected from now until April 8. Thank you!
