Carnival is this Saturday 4/20/24 from 3-6pm

4/12/2024 1:08 am

See you all this Saturday from 3-6pm for our MPE Spring Carnival.



  • The Silent Auction is online at https://app.memberhub.gives/mpecarnival2024 and will begin on April 5th (you are welcome to have a sneak peek at our auction items as our site will go live on 4/5/24,  but please know we are still uploading more items all week). All bidding is done online. The auction ends at 6pm on Sat. April 20th. Feel free to share the auction website with friends and family. 
    • There are over $15,000 of donated items in our auction. Examples of items include summer camps, local businesses and attractions in NC (Umstead, Marbles, etc.) , orthodontic treatments, UNC Wellness family memberships, etc. We also have amazing MPE experiences including breakfast bunch with the counsellors, a dance choreography with Ms. Rochelle up for raffle and more. Let's not forget the coveted front parking space as well as front row seats to the 5th grade moving up ceremony.
    • This year, there is a BUY NOW option so check out the items early in the week before they sell.
    • You can set a proxy bid with your maximum bid.
    The 12 Raffle Baskets were created by all our classrooms through our room parents. They will go live for auction on April 8th. We will upload a list of the basket contents to our silent auction website. Mrs. Pauls will draw 12 winners on April 22nd. Enter the raffle basket draws in one of 2 ways: 
    • online through our silent auction website. Bundles of tickets can be purchased and we will physically enter a ticket into the appropriate basket draw.
    • in person at the Carnival using Fun Tickets (we will ask you to write your name and phone number on each ticket you enter).
    • teacher experiences



As you know, this large event can't happen without our amazing parent volunteers. We do need your help to bring this event to our school community. Sign up for a volunteer shift at the carnival and receive 2 extra raffle tickets.
