Held each May, the Armatage Montessori School Carnival is fun for the whole family. It is sponsored by the PTA and is open to all. Hundreds of kids and their parents flock to the school to pariticipate in the fun.  Games of chance and contests of skill, food, treats, face-painting, inflatables, a used-book sale, and plenty of chaos.

Each time you play a game at the Carnival, you will get a token. Keep your tokens, and get as many as you can because they are worth something! These tokens can be redeemed for fantastic prizes in the prize room (aka Media Center). There will be prizes for all token amounts, so every child can come home with something.


Be on the lookout for info from your child/ren's room parents about volunteering at the carnival. The carnival is our most volunteer intensive event, requiring up to 200 volunteer hours. Volunteers are scheduled in hour-long, overlapping shifts, so you still have time to enjoy the carnival with your family.  Sign up for a shift and get five tickets to use at the carnival for food and/or games. Talk to your room parent, or email
