JH Fall Festival 2020

UPDATED 10/28:  Due to rain, JH has decided to postpone the Grab-and-Go Fall Festival until next Thursday, November 5th.  I am updating dates below.  Feel free to change your sign up, if needed!  

The Jefferson-Houston counseling team has asked the PTA to help with the Fall Festival, and we are happy to lend a hand!  We're planning to help by providing:

- borrowed or donated fall decorations 

- chalk art on the sidewalks 

- signage (directional posterboards)

- student art on posterboards to decorate the fences

- a few volunteers for setup and cleanup

If you can help with any of these items, please sign up below, or if you have questions or other ideas, contact Yaël at <[email protected]>.   Decorations, art, or signage can be dropped off:

Beforehand at Yaël's house -- 1767 Potomac Greens Drive (off Slaters Ln, just north of Old Town) -- text Yaël at 501-309-5666 if you drop off;

Beforehand at Sarah's house -- 103 West Walnut (Rosemont) -- text Sarah at 703-399-4328 if you drop off, she will set out a bin;

Or on the day of the event, 11/5, from 8am to 2pm at Jefferson Houston's front entry or bus doors.  Text our Parent Liaison, Ms. Fraser, at 501-240-3789 if you drop off at JH.  It's also okay to drop off items at JH during office hours on a day before the event, including during lunch pick-up, but please text Ms. Fraser to make sure she knows.  

If your child wants to create a fall-themed or we-miss-JH / JH spirit-themed poster for us to hang on the fence, use any sturdy paper or poster board, and drop off the finished work at one of the locations above. We will leave the art up as long as we can, but due to weather, art won't be returned.  (If you need poster board, you can pick it up at the addresses above after Friday 10/23. Just text to coordinate.) Keep in mind that the event is fall-themed (not spooky/Halloween), though we'll also have "We Miss You" and "Go Jaguar" messages, too.  

Quantities listed are just guesses, and we'll work with what we have.  

Thank you!  

Your J-H PTA

If you don’t get any others to help with this I’m sure I could do more. Will you provide the poster board or will I need to get it?
