5th Grade

It's Time to Plan the 5th Grade Carnival!!!

It has become our last-day-of-school tradition to welcome the 3rd graders to their new playground and to celebrate the end of another great year at Bay Farm Elementary!  Your Fifth Grader will be responsible for staffing and working a booth for this carnival.  Here is what he/she needs to know:


1. Your first task is to choose a reliable group and come up with THREE viable booth ideas. BOOTH IDEAS!

2. Then go online and fill out your booth application. Booth Application Form

3. Once your booth application has been accepted, you and your partners will be given a contract that is to be signed by all students and one parent per student.

4. Pay your Booth Rental Fees

  • It will cost each team $200 to rent a booth. However, to help be more environmentally responsible,
  • A $25 rebate will be given to any group who does not need electricity.
  • An additional $25 rebate will be given for each group who uses all compostable and recyclable items. (including prizes!)

Note!! Students who are given an environmental rebate will be inspected on the day of the carnival. Failure to pass inspection will result in a $100 fine!
