Coles Carnival

Spring Carnival 

Friday, April 20, 2018, 6-8 PM

Coles Elementary’s  Spring carnival will be a time to celebrate with students, teachers, staff and family!! It will be a great evening of carnival games, face painting, bouncy house maze, and all sorts of yummy goodies including food trucks, popcorn and cotton candy!

We are looking for businesses who would like to feature their businesses by sponsoring one of the games or concessions. 

Box Tops For Coles

Please help us continue to earn money for our school through the rewards programs by submitting your Box Tops. We are now running a Spring Box Tops Contest from February 14th -May 1st so please send in or deposit your non-expired Box Tops in the collection box, found just outside of the office, starting February 14th. When sending them in, please put the student’s and teacher’s name on the page or baggie you send in so they can be counted toward the class’s total. 

Though you are welcome to send in as many Box Tops as you wish, each individual student will only be allowed to have 500 Box Tops counted toward their class’ total for the contest to keep the odds of winning fairer for each class. The winning classes will be announced at the end of May. 

As with previous contests, the top 3 classes will receive prizes:

*First Place Class will receive: A Cookie Party & a Spirit Stick

**Second Place Class will receive: Extra Recess & a Spirit Stick

***Third Place Class will receive: A Spirit Stick


Our Spring Boosterthon Fun Run begins April 18th, through the 27th.   

Boosterthon is a fun, nine-day program that combines world-class character content with a highly-profitable fundraiser. Along with this program we’re hoping to provide each student with a FREE custom Coles Elementary School t-shirt to wear the day of the Fun Run event, at no cost to the student, school, or PTA. In order to make this happen, we need your help! 

We’re hoping to partner with local businesses to help sponsor our effort. If you know of or are part of a business that would be interested in sponsoring shirts for our students, please forward them the attached sponsor form. Their name or logo will be displayed on the back of a shirt that will be worn by every student in the school. Not only will their support be helpful to Coles Elementary, but we believe it will bring more awareness to them and provide a profit in return. 

We need payment and logos from all sponsors by March 7th in order to supply all of our students with a shirt. 

Thank you in advance for supporting our school through the Fun Run! If you have any questions, please contact Shannon Fletcher at

PTA Budget
