Want to know more about what your local public schools are really like? Attending a school fair or fundraiser is a great way to get a flavor of the school culture and meet current parents.
I just found out about a great school carnival in the panhandle/NOPA (North of Panhandle) area:
New Traditions ES Carnival – Happening this Saturday, April 26th from 11am-4pm. This school carnival will feature Fou Fou Ha, Shredder Hoops, Boswick The Clown, SF Cable Car Chorus Barbershop Quartet, The Talent Allstars, Magician Dash and more! There will also be carnival games where kids can play to win prizes! In addition, there will be a Family BBQ, cotton candy, popcorn, a Spin Art Bike and Fender Blender from Fossil Fool, and a Photobooth from Magnolia Photo Booth Co.!
