Spring Carnival Information
Hello OTE Community,
During these unprecedented times, and in doing our part to keep our community safe, the original date of April 3rd for our OTE PTA Spring Carnival is no longer possible.  With this being our biggest community event for our school and fundraiser for the PTA, we know it is an event that everyone looks forward to every year. So for now, a new date for the Carnival itself, as well as the Raffle Baskets is currently on hold pending further direction and information from RRISD, as well as the state. 

But…what is not on hold is our Online Silent Auction!  The new bidding dates are as follows:  Bidding will open at noon on Wednesday, April 8th and will close at 10pm on Friday April 17th.  When the auction link is ready to go live we will publish it through our PTA FB page, our PTA website and e-news.  The online auction is an amazing way to be able to support our great school and all the local companies that have donated items.

Thank you,
Old Town Elementary PTA
