After being rescheduled a few times throughout the Spring, the Junior Class Carnival ran in the senior class parking lot on Thursday, May 26th. And despite a bit of drizzling rain, the community turnout was impressive — at its peak, nearly the entire section of the parking lot was stocked with people playing games, buying tickets, or even dunking a teacher.
The Junior Class Carnival came into existence for the first time last year, replacing the Junior Class Fashion Show that used to be the biggest fundraiser of junior year. Its main purpose is to help fundraise for students’ senior year events, including homecoming, class picnics, prom, and more. In addition to 10 games, facepainting, a bounce house, and music, there were also two food trucks and a Kona Ice truck. One of the food trucks was Rescue Dogs, who used their proceeds to benefit the homeless.

Some of the setup for the event.
Junior Class Sponsors Ms. Wahl and Ms. Negron helped immensely with the process, in addition to the work done by Junior Class Officers. This year, in contrast to last year, the event had 10 business sponsors, helping offset some of the costs of the prizes.
Overall, the consensus is that the event was a great success, especially considering some of the unfortunate weather that affected some of the event. The Class of 2023 should be in a good place as they enter their senior year.
