Students, teachers, and parents of Pilot Mountain Elementary School are anxiously preparing for the upcoming annual fall festival that is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 7 at 5 p.m.
According to Fabiola Pannutti, Parent-Teacher Organization president, the festival will be packed full of engaging games and activities.
The PTO is organizing the event.
Throughout the festival, students will be able to play games that are featured at different booths that the teachers have planned. After winning tickets by playing different games, the students will be able to cash in their earnings for various prizes.
There will be a small pumpkin patch, as well as a DJ providing music for the event. There will also be a dunking booth and haunted trail.
Pannutti said that students are welcome to wear their Halloween costumes as long as they obey the school dress code.
As for food at the festival, there will be barbecue sandwiches.
The mascot for the Winston-Salem Bash minor league baseball team will be on hand for the event.
The festival will mark the end of the school’s September coin drive that will be used to purchase additional Croomebooks for the school. The goal of the coin drive was $1,000, with the reward for reaching the goal being that Alison York, principal, will kiss a pig.
“Everything that the PTO does is for the school,” Pannutti said of the event and ones similar to it.
