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.
