The Carnival is made successful by the generous donations we receive from local businesses and Cedar Ridge families and teachers.

Here are the Carnival events we need donations for.  If you can help or if you have ideas or suggestions, please contact one of the coordinators listed below.  Thanks in advance for your help!

Classroom Theme Baskets:

This year, we’ll be doing gift card baskets only.  No extra shopping, just grab a gift card, or if you have one lying around at home bring it in!  We can certainly use it! Donate it to the carnival! Grade level themes include Family & Kid Fun, EP Restaurants & Grocery & Gas.

Not enough time to shop?  No worries!  Send in a check made out to “Cedar Ridge Elementary PTO” (put ‘theme baskets’ in the memo line) and we’ll shop for you.

***Please send donations to your classroom teacher by March 9***

Silent Auction & Raffle:

We need your help in getting some fun and exciting items or “experiences” for our Carnival’s Silent Auction & Raffle.

For the Silent Auction, we appreciate a wide variety of new items and gift certificates for kids and adults.  Past silent auctions have included items such as toys, jewelry, household items, sporting goods, apparel, artwork, and computer software as well as gift certificates for local restaurants, stores and services.

If you have donations for the silent auction, contact: Jocelyn Stenberg at

All donations are tax deductible. Tax receipts are issued by request only.

Silent Auction donations can be dropped off at school, preferably by March 9. If you don’t have time to drop them off, give us a call or an email and we’ll come pick it up from you!

Nail Art

We need lots of bottles of nail polish, in a variety of fun and fantastic colors. Do you have some polish that just wasn’t the right color? Contacts with a company that might be willing to donate polish? We’ll take donations in the school office starting the beginning of March.

Candy, Pop and Munchies:

We need lots of treats for the Carnival for the Candy Walk and Pop & Munchie Walk.  Movie-sized candy, large bags of chips, popcorn, pretzels, etc!

Simply fill out the form located in the Carnival packet noting what you can donate.

All donations should be brought to the school lobby by Monday, March 19 by 4:00 p.m.
