Students, parents, alumni and area residents flocked to Fort Craig School of Dynamic Learning Nov. 1 for the annual Fort Craig Fall Carnival.
Assistant Principal Lisa Tuggle said the event is the school’s biggest fundraiser and they hold it every fall. “We have a silent auction, we have food and games for the kids. It’s a fun, family night. I think we’ve been doing this since 1995 when Fort Craig School of Dynamic Learning opened,” Tuggle said. “It’s been long-standing tradition, we had a pumpkin carving contest, a dunking booth. We had a high participation.”
Tuggle said the event is just a good way to connect with the community. “We have lots of alumni students who come back for this event. It’s great to see the older students return and we have family and parents who don’t have kids at Fort Craig anymore that continue to participate,” she said. “That’s been a lot of fun.”
The Fort Craig Boosters organize the event every. “Our parent organization does a tremendous job. There are countless hours that go into this carnival. We have a carnival committee and it’s broken down into several sub committees,” she said. “There is a tremendous amount of work that goes into this event every year. We’re so grateful to the parents for all they do.”
