Carnival, auction planned at Middlebury Elementary

MIDDLEBURY — The parent-teacher organization at Middlebury Elementary School is not only offering the usual games and crafts and gift baskets at its annual carnival and auction on Saturday — it’s rounded up some pretty impressive auction items.

For starters there’s the $4,500 full braces package from Dr. Long in Elkhart.

“That’s incredible,” said MES Principal Jeremy Miller. “We are so fortunate to be able to offer that.”

Alongside a 39-inch LCD television and several cornhole games will be a Notre Dame football autographed by Coach Brian Kelly, an offer to ride to school in a police car or fire truck, an electric guitar, a photography package from Red Barn Photograph in Goshen, student art and a night of baby-sitting service by Miller.

This is the second year I’ve baby-sat. We had five kids come to the school last year and we watched a movie and had popcorn,” Miller said. “We also took a walk around the school and I opened doors that are normally locked while they’re in school. We even opened the trap door to the basement and took a peek. It’s pretty fun for me and the kids.”

The carnival and silent auction is from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., with the live auction beginning at 12:30 p.m. A food court offers hot dogs, pizza, smoothies, cotton candy and popcorn.

All proceeds support the children at the elementary, offsetting the cost of various projects, field trips and classroom equipment.
