Green Corn Festival Logo

October 17, 2019

Dear Bluewater Parents-

            After much deliberation, consideration, and consultation with vendors, we have decided to postpone our Green Corn Festival until November 1 due to the anticipated rain in tomorrow’s forecast. We know that attempting to set up indoors or other alternatives will not yield the quality experience that we strive for.  Thank you for understanding that this is a fundraiser with many expenses that are already encumbered. All purchases will be considered a donation towards our PTO technology fund. Please hold on to your armbands and food tickets for use on Friday, November 1. We will continue to collect candy, 2 liters, and sell Yolo board raffle tickets. Our childcare will be open tomorrow afternoon but closed on November 1.

Thank you for understanding that this was a difficult decision but was done so to give our families the best experience possible.

Sincerely,

 

Amy Klugh

Principal
