We are sorry to report that due to the restrictions put in place last night by the State of California prohibiting large gatherings, we officially have to announce that the Pinetree Spring Carnival scheduled for next Friday, March 20th has been postponed to Friday, May 29th.
Any wristband and vendor booth prepayments received will be carried over to the new date. If you prepaid and are unable to make to make the new date, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can arrange a refund.
This is always one of the best nights of the year to come and hang out with your Pinetree friends and enjoy the Festivities. This year we'll have returning favorites including the giant slide, obstacle course, toddler bounce house, train ride, carnival games, video game truck, petting zoo and new this year - ORB Hamster Balls, Bungee Run and Pony Rides! We'll also have some really cool silent auctions, raffles and the return of the yummy 6th Grade Food Booth. Also, new this year, we're bringing back vendor booths to browse and shop.
We have two tiers of wristbands for the different age groups:
Ages 5-15 Wristbands (adults do not need wristbands) Presale: $15 - At the Carnival: $20
Ages 4 and under Wristbands Presale: $8 - At the Carnival: $10
Food Tickets will be sold separately at the Carnival
The presale for wristbands is always the best deal! Make sure to take advantage of it before the presale ends Wednesday, May 27th. Pre-ordered wristbands will be available for pickup after school on May 29th and during the Carnival at the check in booth.
If you didn't complete one at the beginning of the school year, please make sure to submit the completed PTA and Sulphur Springs School District Waiver with your cash/check order or print it out and submit to your teacher for online credit/debit orders. Order forms will be going home with your Pioneers.
Wristbands will not be given to the students unless both waivers are completed and signed by their guardian.
We at the PTA always want to provide the best Carnival for our Pioneers but we can’t do it without the parents and teacher volunteers to help us run everything safely and smoothly.If we don't have volunteers during certain shifts, we'll be forced to shut down that attraction/game during that time. The PTA’s motto is “Many Hands Make Light Work” and we could use as many hands as we can get. If you have older kids in Jr. High or High School, please have them come out and volunteer. We will sign any volunteer hour verification forms for their schools.
NEW THIS YEAR: For every 30 minute shift volunteered, you'll receive a free raffle ticket to enter in one of our many awesome raffles!
Volunteering Tip: Perhaps team up with another Pinetree Parent! They can watch your Pioneers play at the carnival while you volunteer your 30-minute shift and then you can trade off.
Please click the button below, review and signup. You can volunteer a half hour shift (or more) which still leaves plenty of time to spend with your kiddos at the carnival the rest of the night.

6th Grade Food Booth Donations
The sixth grade is in charge of food and we are asking for each 6th Grade Family to contribute if possible. This is the list of items needed; we are breaking it down to last names so that we don't get too much of one item and not enough of another. If you can contribute it would be very much appreciated! The more food that is donated, the more $$$ profit can be made at the 6th Grade food booth for their end of year 6th Grade Activities including the Six Flags trip and Greek Week.
