Welcome to the 3rd Annual Kidfest! Kidfest is an event intended to raise money to purchase summer reading books for the Triangle Lake Montessori School. In addition, students from UNC Greensboro will be invited to join kids from Triangle Lake for an afternoon of fun and excitement right here on campus. The afternoon event includes dance parties, a bounce house, finger foods, arts and crafts, parachute games, dodgeball, Zumba, and much much more.

KidFest 2015

Students from UNCG wishing to participate are asked to join in teams, with the intent that each team raise as many funds as possible for the book purchase. Throughout the event, at least one student from each team should be participating and interacting with the kids. At the end of the afternoon, we will present the books to the principal and teachers from the school. They will then distribute the books to the children to keep them reading over the summer!

Unfortunately, Triangle Lake has a lot of students who, without us, would not have anything to do over the summer. Most of the families do not have enough money to purchase books or send their kids to summer camp. This program provides both a fun free activity for kids and parents to enjoy and a book for them to practice their reading skills over the summer. Being an institution of higher education, promoting literacy and reading is important. We want these kids and their parents to remember UNCG and, one day, return here as future Spartans!

Books purchased with funds raised at KidFest 2015. Each PreK - 2nd Grade student will get a copy of the big picture book shown after conclusion of next week's book fair program, and each upper elementary student will each get TWO chapter books!  In total 535 students will benefit from the books.
