Sunrise PFO CommUNITY Carnival (4/28/17) (Vendor applications due 4/7/16)




Dear Carnival Vendors,


The Sunrise Elementary School Parent Faculty Organization (PFO) will be sponsoring a Community Carnival on Friday, April 28th from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.  Our Community Carnival will be a success because of the support and participation of local businesses like yours!  The proceeds from this event will help Sunrise Elementary and the new Anatolia Elementary School opening in July 2017 pay for technology, arts, supplies, and academic programs during this school year.  We plan to host approximately 2,000 people at this exciting event, so it is also a great opportunity for your business to showcase and share information about your products and services.


Host a Vendor Booth:  The cost to reserve a booth is $50.  This includes an outdoor area approximately 10×10.  Please provide your own canopy tent and table.  Tables may be available at the school for a $260 refundable deposit if requested in advance.  Apply Here!


Host a Game or Activity:  Along with a booth to sell items or share information about your products, we invite you to bring a game or activity for families to enjoy.


Donate Raffle or Game Prizes:  We would love to support your business by including a basket of items, gift cards, or a few items from your company in our raffle.  We are also looking for small toys, pencils, stickers, or small prize items for children to win at the Carnival Games.


Sponsor a Game:  For a $75 donation to the Sunrise PFO, we will purchase materials to make a new game or refresh an old one, and place your business sign or logo provided by you next to one of our new games.


Please complete the vendor reservation (form and fee) and deliver other donations by Friday, April 7th, 2016.  Booth requests received after this date will incur a $10 late fee, and no vendor forms will be accepted after Friday, April 14th.  There are a limited number of spaces available this year, so spaces will be reserved to those who turn in the completed form and fee first.  Please complete the reservation online at , or send your completed form, reservation money, and donations to the address included in the attachment.


Thank you for your generosity!  Please contact Sarah Standring at 916-496-1230 or for more information.

Calendars for Sale – $10

Mrs. Pike’s Class is selling calendars!  Here is a sample of the beautiful artwork included in the calendars!


Mrs. Pike’s SCOE (Sacramento County Office of Education) classroom is located here on our Sunrise Elementary Campus and serves students aged 5 – 14 years of age who have severe cognitive and physical disabilities. Throughout their school day, students work on both daily living skills and pre-academics. These students work extremely hard and we have seen incredible growth in each of them over the school year.

Each year they make calendars using students’ hand and foot prints. This year the calendar is “Disney Themed” and features various characters from Disney Movies. Calendars are $10 each. All proceeds go to purchase technology and sensory equipment that will help students succeed.

Please email Bobbie at if you would like to order a calendar for the New Year.

If you would like an example of the kind of technology that they are currently working towards you may visit Mrs. Pike’s donors choose page using the link below:
