Seasonal festivals are an essential part of Blue Oak culture and community.

  • 4:30 pm > Booths and Potluck OPEN

TALENT SHOWCASE

Kids, parents,staff, families etc., are all welcome to share their talent with us.

VOLUNTEERING

All crafts and games are provided for the children by parent volunteers.
Your Parent Council Class Representative will be reaching out to ask for the following:

  • 2 volunteers for set-up from 1:30 - 2:30 pm
  • 2 hosts to run their class booth from after the play (4:30'ish) to 5:30 pm
  • 2 hosts to run their class booth from 5:30-6:45 pm and then clean-up the booth

Please help where you can so we can provide the kids with a FUN festival and all volunteers will have time to enjoy the festival as well. All hours can be counted towards your family participation hours.
