The Fernwood Fun Fair is coming up in May!  The Fun Fair will be held Friday, May 26th afterschool. The Fun Fair is a school and family festival with food and games, and has been a Fernwood Spring tradition for decades. This community event is anticipated by Fernwood families, friends and neighbours.  It’s an afternoon of playing games, hanging out with friends and family, enjoying the food, and most importantly—children running blissfully free through the Fernwood "fairground"! The Fun Fair is also Fernwood PAC’s biggest fundraiser and does not happen without parent involvement, and PAC money (hopefully you all know) is used for classroom and library books, purchasing much needed sports and school equipment, funding field trip transportation, to name a few. There will be a bouncy castle, boogeying at the cake walk, games "fishpond", "mini-golf", "sponge toss"....even the new Zorb Balls from last year to take a spin on! Stay tuned for your PAC Parent Classroom Rep to let you know which game parents will share the operation of and for further details on how it will be run by parent volunteers for the kids! The Fun Fair can be especially meaningful to the graduating Grade 5s!
