A.R. Turner's Annual Fall Festival

On Friday, November 14th, 2014 our campus will host one of our most anticipated events – our Annual Fall Festival. This community event is open to everyone! We welcome you to come out and enjoy a night of fun with your family! The Fall Festival will offer live and silent auctions, great raffles, and fun games with prizes, dinner & more!

Our Fall Festival could not be successful without the help and contributions of our parents, community, local businesses and corporations. Please consider a sponsorship to our school with items that may be auctioned or raffled off at this years’ event. (ie: Gift Certificates, Merchandise, Service or even Tickets to an event)

Fall Festival is the ONLY fundraiser hosted by the A.R. Turner PTO. ALL of the proceeds raised through Fall Festival are used to support our school. The PTO uses these funds to pay for requests made by teachers in need of supplies to better educate our children. In the past, we have provided music, athletic equipment, projectors, educational magazine subscriptions, science lab items as well as special educational computer programs.

We will also have Sponsorship Banners available for purchase again this year. Banners are a great way to advertise your business as well as support our school. Banners are placed on the fence in front of the school and are visible to more than 400 car riders daily! Banners remain on display throughout the entire school year.
* New this year - Shout Out Banners are available for purchase to wish your special student a great year!
For more information on this event or how to get involved, email us at arturnerpto@aol.com or call (936) 856-1289.
