Halloween Week… full of thanks and themes

 do you ever have an idea pop into your head and
you just hope and pray it doesn't leave you…
this is how these tags came about…
I have had this idea swirling in my head for a few weeks now and
after our carnival… I had to do it…
we often overlook our custodians during the busy days at school…
they have to put in extra work on our party days, festivals, and any other school function that produces extra trash and clean-ups
but before I show you what I came up with...

first let's talk about our carnival…
we are a very tiny school
about 3 teachers to a grade
some have 4
but when it comes to carnival time…
it takes all of our efforts to try and throw something fun for the kids…
most of us… take on our own booth…
the more the merrier RIGHT!!!
my booth was
Meet and Greet with the
 It was a blast to have the
TMNTs at our school…
the kiddos LOVED it!!!
Our carnival is our number one
fundraiser and the TURTLES
helped get 4th grade's funds filled up!!!
CoWaBunGa DuDe!!!
it takes a lot to set up and even more
to tear down…
most of it we, the teachers, do ourselves…
BUT when it comes to moving tables before and after
and cleaning up spills and the aftermath mess
of hundreds of festival goers…
our night shift custodians do that…

don't get me wrong…
the teachers did what we could to help clean up and tear down…
but there are some things we can't do
like use their really cool floor mopping machine…
which I am sure is not so cool to them after a carnival

anywho… here is what I did

 the options are
a delicious treat… what if you don't want to give an edible treat
a little treat…. maybe you want to give a gift card
and then there is keeping our school neat… instead of room neat…
anyways… they are all available to you :)

 I put the Mummy Tag in its own freebie pack
find the links at the bottom...

that is it in a nutshell!!!

anywho… here they are
