The public is invited to attend special seasonal fundraising events at Dingeman Elementary School and Ellen Browning Scripps Elementary School, both being held at the respective schools on Friday, Oct. 25.
Fall festivities support schools
Two local elementary schools are bringing fall festivities to Scripps Ranch. Both Ellen Browning Scripps and Dingeman Elementary schools are hosting fall themed events for the local community to support their schools.
EBS Fall Family Festival
The Ellen Browning Scripps (EBS) Fall Family Festival will be held on Oct. 25 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the school. Danyelle Comer, EBS ABF president, said this year’s events will include a cupcake walk, games of chance, a pumpkin carving contest and a variety of local food vendors. Comer said families can further support the school by participating in the Silent Auction. She also explained that the event will boast new events this year including game booths sponsored by each grade level, in addition to a new game that is likely to be a hit with the kids.
“To add to the fun, our carnival chairs built a life-sized Candy Land, which will be run in partnership with the American Heart Association who is providing prizes for the game. And to promote heart health, we’ve added ‘healthful’ tips for the kids throughout the game,” Comer said.
Attending the festival is free for all families. Twenty-five game and bake sale tickets can be purchased for $20, a raffle ticket for $5, or 10 game boards for $10 at the festival.
The EBS Fall Festival proceeds will go to support programs such as Everyone’s A Reader, Fine Artists, grade-appropriate Science Nights, International Night and Character Education. Everyone is encouraged to come in costumes appropriate for elementary aged children. For more information on the Fall Festival, visit ebs-afp.com/fallfamilyfestival.
Dingeman Elementary Boo Bash
The Dingeman Elementary School Boo Bash will be held on Oct. 25 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the school. The event will boast music, games, trick or treating and food.
Everyone is encouraged to come in costume. Attendees are asked to avoid costumes with gory decorations or costumes with weapons.
