We rely on our great community of WBE families to step up, volunteer and contribute! In the coming weeks, we’ll be sending out specifics about how you can help, so please keep an eye on your email, like us on Facebook, visit our website, and check your child’s folder for details. We have plenty of opportunity and many ways to get involved.
Over 300 volunteer shifts must be filled in order to pull off this amazing event! We need volunteers for set-up, clean-up, shifts at the booths, silent auction, concessions and activities on the day of the festival. There are also volunteer shifts the week before for ticket pre-sales. Volunteer sign-up sheets will be posted in the coming weeks on the volunteer website. Springfest is a great volunteer opportunity for responsible high school and middle school students, as well as parents, grandparents and community members. Volunteer for an hour or all day!
Each grade level sponsors a basket at the festival and supplies are donated by the families within that grade. For example: cakes for the Cake Walk, cans of silly string for Silly String Wars, Pringles for Pringles Toss. For the Silent Auction, each classroom has a theme and items are donated based on that theme. For example, Beach Theme donations might include sand toys, beach towels, discount admission to Hawaiian Falls, etc. Pets theme might include new collars, food dishes, pet treats/toys, doggie/cat bed, gift certificate to doggie daycare, etc. Cash donations for booth/basket items are always welcome and appreciated, and if you know of a local business willing to donate products or services for the Silent Auction, that is also a great way to help us raise funds!
Spread the word
Springfest is open to our whole community, and the more people attend, the more our school benefits. It also happens to be a really fun time! There is live music, great food, and fun games and prizes for kids and adults of all ages! So please spread the word: invite your friends, families, and neighbors to join WBE for a fun day Saturday, April 8, from 2 – 6 pm! Let’s make this our biggest, best Springfest ever!
