Family Night- Dinner and a Movie
The PTA's Family Night- Dinner and a Movie 2018 was an event that the PTA planned for the families of Clemson Elementary intended to include the whole family, whatever the makeup. We wanted to be as inclusive as we could be and offer a memory maker for everyone. It was also not a fundraiser for the PTA, but rather, an event that only charged enough to pay for itself! In doing this we were able to offer the lowest prices of any movie night event allowing more of our families to go and also allowing families with more than four members to bring the additional members for free! We were able to achieve having dinner for everyone, a movie on a 20ft outdoor screen, 2 -18 foot blow up slides, a DJ and a craft area for $5 a person because we made the dinner pot luck! We invited our families to come and bring a cover dish and also had many community leaders donate food from their restaurants! These donations were not only delicious, they fed our whole crowd.
So, I want to extend a huge thank you to everyone that came, everyone that donated to both our dinner and our raffle and to all of the volunteers that helped make this event the awesome night that it was!
THANK YOU ALL!
The Clemson Elementary PTA International Festival, held each spring for the past 20 years, is a staple of the CES PTA year. Each year, over 30 countries are represented by students and families, in song, dance, art, and food. Performances in the past include martial arts demonstrations, West African drumming, Bengali folk songs, Nigerian babywearing, Japanese origami, Indian henna, and a special performance by the 3rd grade chorus.
The PTA International Festival is a major fundraiser for the PTA and helps support the year-long programing of the PTA. In recent years, the International Festival has teamed up with the Art Department to host a sale of framed student art. This yearly art sale helps generate thousands of dollars in proceeds each year which directly benefits the CES art department.
The annual Clemson Elementary Fall Festival is a fantastic event for the whole family. The festival consists of games, bouncy houses, slides, food, prizes, face painting, pony rides, music and more. It is typically the first PTA sponsored event of the year and is a very successful fundraiser for us. Parents and community volunteers help to make it a special event for kids and parents alike.
