The Extravaganza!

Our school has one main fundraiser all year--the spring Extravaganza (carnival). As part of the festivities, the 5th graders are asked to each donate a cake for the cake auction and cake walk. How long have I known that my son would be a 5th grader this year and that we would need a cake? A long time. But we've been on vacation. My brain is still on vacation. This has totally tapped my creative capacities for a long while. And they weren't even my ideas! At any rate, they're done and I think they turned out pretty fun. We had a good time working together on them.









You're welcome to come bid on cakes or buy a snow cone or have a little dinner tonight with hundreds or sugar-high, summer-anxious hyper kids tonight at Rock Canyon school between 4:30 and 7:30. I can't wait!

CLEVER cakes! The extravaganza sounds fun. I wish more schools would do just ONE big fundraiser like that:) When Bill and I were PTA Presidents that's what we did. But it didn't stick. Too much nickle and dimeing the parents with constant fundraisers.

I especially HATE the door to door ones. So I'm thrilled to go and support our school for a big one if it will eliminate the constant hounding of parents. We need more people like you and Bill. :)

Very creative!!!! Any idea how much they went for at the auction? I'm sure both were a big hit! (It was weird not being involved there this year....yet nice!!) :}
