Carnival T-shirts:

Show your support for this traditional ROE event with a Carnival T-shirt.  T-shirts must be pre-ordered by Friday, March 23 and will be delivered to your oldest child’s classroom prior to the event. Please note that Carnival T-shirts will not be available for purchase at the Carnival.  Click here to order now!

Discount Carnival Tickets are also available for pre-order until March 23.  All  pre-purchased tickets will be available for pick up at the Will Call table (next to the Ticket Booth) on the day of the Carnival.  Regularly priced tickets will be available for sale the day of the Carnival.  Click here to save money and avoid the long lines!

Carnival Booth Volunteers:

Each class has been designated a booth for the Carnival, which will be staffed with volunteers from that class.  In order for booths to remain open, each booth must be fully staffed with volunteers. Please click here to volunteer!  The sign up is organized by grade level, so please make sure to scroll all the way through the list to find your child’s class.

Donate Canned Sodas for the Carnival Drink Drive :

Each year, the ROE PTO asks for drink donations for the ROE Carnival.  Once again, Frost Bank is graciously donating bottled water, but we will still  need  canned sodas​.   If you would like to donate sodas , please bring drinks to carpool drop-off during the week of April 2.  You may also drop drinks off at the table just inside the school, in front of the cafeteria during the week of April 2.  Please do not bring water or juice for the drink drive as those drink needs are already covered.

Bring a Baked Good for the Cake Walk :

The Carnival Cake Walk is one of the most popular booths each year, but we need your help to ensure its success! We will be accepting baked goods in the carpool drop-off line or in the front of the school on Friday, April 6.  For health code purposes, we cannot accept baked items prior to April 6.

Unable to make it to school to shop during lunch or after school?  No problem!  We are excited to offer Gift Certificates for purchase again this year. Gift certificates are an easy way to allow any ROE student, teacher, or specialist to purchase books at the upcoming Book Fair. Gift certificates will be delivered to the child’s classroom each morning and may be used to purchase items sold in the Book Fair on any day of the Book Fair, including on Family Night (gift certificates cannot be used to purchase Family Night tickets). Any unused funds from the gift certificates will be given as a contribution to the ROE PTO at the close of Book Fair.  Gift certificates will also be available for purchase at the Book Fair.
