Hello parents,
I wanted to let you know about an exciting opportunity for our school. On Saturday, August 24th is the Columbus Children’s Festival at the Ohio Village from 10AM – 5PM. The festival is intended to help Franklin County Children’s Services provide back to school supplies for underprivileged youths. We encourage people attending to please bring new or gently used supplies to help families in need.

The Columbus Children’s festival is so much fun including 4 entertainment zones, a family friendly musical festival featuring New Hollow (3 top 5 songs), Shazzbots, Magic Nate, 50+ activities, various contests (talent, cooking, art, and more), sport competition (dodgeball, 1 mile & 5k race), bounce houses, game trucks, rock climbing wall, and much more.
You can help our school by purchasing tickets to the event. For every ticket you purchase, $2 goes back to our school! Here are some details and more ways to help and have fun:
