Eastvale – On May 13, Eastvale Elementary held a free community c
arnival in honor of their 10-year anniversary: their celebration of excellence.
“We just wanted to celebrate with all our current students, our alumni, and have a big carnival for everyone,” said Emily Mitchell, 4th grade Eastvale Elementary School teacher and head of the Carnival Committee. “This was our first carnival ever,” added Mitchell.
The carnival was an exciting event with booths, food trucks, vendors, and games. Each grade level had a booth of activities for the community to participate in, such as various games of basketball, a bean bag toss, and even an Angry Bird game.
A DJ played music for the kids to dance to and the students were even able to take pictures with Spider-Man and two Stormtroopers.
Balloon animals were being made for kids to enjoy and Eastvale Elementary 3rd grade teacher, Lisa Hoffman, was seen face painting.
Mitchell explained that Eastvale Elementary’s performing arts group showed a preview of their Jungle Book play at the carnival. Well-known Eastvale player, David Lee, and his band Minor Strut also performed at the carnival.
In addition, there was a train available for community members to ride around the carnival in.
With all of the games and activities that took place at the carnival, Mitch
ell said it was all thanks to the volunteers and community members who made the event happen. “We have such a great community, they all came out to help and [the carnival] turned out really awesome,” said Mitchell.
“We had a great committee with Kathy, Liz Paskey, Lizette Sweaza, Teresa Cimino, and a bunch of people joining together to make this happen.”
Congratulations on 10 years of excellence Eastvale Elementary!
