Fall Festival Here We Come!

This Friday 4:00 pm...

Mark your calendar: October 2, 4:00-8:00 pm (rain date is October 23). You're all invited! Bring your friends and family to school for one of the most exciting Maggie Walker events of the year: the THIRTEENTH ANNUAL MLWGS FALL FESTIVAL; A GLOBAL CELEBRATION sponsored by our very own PTSA. Please join us for delectable food and treats with an international flair (paella and tapas, Asian fare, snow cones, pizza, bratwurst and crepes, and more), spectacular music and entertainment (including the much anticipated return of the Maggie Walker's own Faculty Lounge Lizards), and lots of fun, crafts and games (Chess Challenge, DDR, Guitar Hero, the Cake Walk and others) while you mingle with old friends and make new ones! Best of all, you’ll be supporting over 60 clubs and organizations offered at MLWGS!

The MLWGS class with the most students, families and friends attending and signing in wins $50 for its treasury. Sign in at the Class Participation Booth during the festival.

We can't do it without you! Why not volunteer and make your experience more memorable? Email Cathy Hermes at cathyhermes@comcast.net or call 530-1063 to find out how you can help with the event. It’s a great chance to meet other parents and have fun working together. Volunteers are needed especially for take-down and cleanup.

Short on time to volunteer for this year’s Fall Festival but still want to help make it a successful and sustainable event for our school, our clubs, and the PTSA? Your donation to defray rental costs and purchases of Fall Festival “essentials” makes a tangible difference in the quality and enjoyment of the celebration. This year’s MLWGS Fall Festival seeks sponsors to contribute to the purchase of pop-up style canopies (to replace our unwieldy small staking tents), large size coolers, additional microphones for the stage, and other items. Any and all monetary gifts are welcomed and appreciated, and we will post your name on our donor lists.
