ATHENA - Athena Elementary School's Partners in Education organization is hosting an "Under the Sea" spring carnival and fundraiser March 9.
The carnival will feature games, prizes, food, a themed costume contest, face painting, bingo for children and adults, a silent auction, and much more. It will be held 5:30-8 p.m. at the Athena Elementary gym, 375 S. Fifth St.
The carnival will raise money to cover the cost of needed projects in the elementary school. Blaine Yunk, president of PIE, said the goal this year is to update computers and the library, and make sure teachers have the resources they need to teach effectively.
Yunk said schools are also always collecting Box Tops for Education and Campbell's Soup Labels, with a goal of $1,000.
