Position Open Immediately: Spring Carnival Chair

We need someone to help oversee our Spring Carnival! The event is not until April 20th, but now is a great time to start planning! If interested, please email Keith Inouye or Jen Jung at or message them via ParentSquare.

Duties: The Spring Carnival is a one-day event that features game booths and prizes, a cake walk, a bake sale, an inflatable and exhibits. Spring Raffle runs alongside the carnival. Individual coordinators organize and run their part of the event; the Carnival Chair ensures that each part progresses and works together.

Time Commitment: Approximately 10-40 hours (depending on how involved you want to be) concentrated over 1-2 months before and including Carnival day. The Carnival Chair is aware of all the different moving parts and needs to be present on the day of the event. On Carnival day, the Chair will organize and supervise set-up and help out where needed.



Spring After School Enrichment registration got off to a smooth start this week! Much gratitude to Sunset parent, WENDY Wallin, for working tirelessly behind the scenes to bring these diverse, enriching after school programs to our students. Thank you, Wendy!
