Parent Volunteers Needed for Unity Carnival

The annual Unity Carnival is on Friday, Oct 3.  For those of you who are not familiar with the Carnival, it is an event that the PFO runs, that provides many fun activities and is a major fundraiser for the school.  Some of the activities are free and some require a paid wristband.  A flyer was sent home approximately two weeks ago about this and you can find further information on the Sunrise PFO Website at

Volunteers are always needed for this event in a wide range of activities.  In fact, the event cannot happen without the help of many parent volunteers.  If you can, please sign up to volunteer!   We are in great NEED of parent volunteers.

Most of the volunteer time slots are for only one-hour.  If you can help out and sign up for a slot, please do so.  You are also welcomed to sign up for more than one slot.  Your time and energy are GREATLY APPRECIATED!

To this end, to sign up for a volunteer slot, you can go to the following website:
