The theme baskets are one of our most popular attractions!  This year will bring a basket-load of fun, delicious, and tantalizing items for you to bid on.

Parents, theme basket donation/volunteer information for each classroom is available here.

Tickets will be available to purchase at the carnival outside of the kindergarten rooms. They are $1 each or $20 for an arm's length (best and most fun deal!). Once you purchase your tickets, you can place your tickets in the envelope next to the basket you want. The more tickets, the better your chances!

This year you can also purchase tickets in advance online using the link below! Please be sure to include the name of the Theme Basket you are buying tickets for, as well as your contact information, in the fields provided.
