Many thanks to our venue chairs, teachers who lent us their rooms, and the more than 100 volunteers who kept everything running smoothly.

Special thanks to Karen Farris, Nicole Erickson and Maria Mellen (Carnival Chairs), Kelly Nelson, Aimee Kizewski, and Hillary Poutasse (Auction Chairs), Maria Villavicencio and Robert Gutierrez (Eagle Mascot), Eden Lake Custodians, Tim Beekmann, Tom Walters, Linda Arp, and Roxanne Manderfeld for your amazing efforts that made the carnival a success and provided enjoyment for all that attended.

Lost and Found

We have a lot of items that need to find their owners! If your child is missing something, please remind them to look through the Lost & Found area which is located by the gym and across from the cafeteria. (Even if they don’t think they are missing something, it doesn't hurt to check.)

PLEASE LABEL YOUR CHILD'S BELONGINGS! Items not claimed within 1 month of being dated at the Lost & Found area are donated to PROP.


Thinking about ordering holiday cards or personalized gifts?

Use our Shutterfly storefront link - - to order them.
For every purchase, Shutterfly will donate 13% back to Eden Lake PTO through December 31, 2019.
Please share with Family and Friends!
