Sharpstein Elementary carnival set for Thursday - Etcetera - 9/18/13


If it inflates and can be bounced upon, chances are the Sharpstein Elementary School fall carnival will feature such springy options. In fact I hear tell there will be houses, slides and an obstacle course of the bouncy sort.

Open to the public, the event from 4:30-7 p.m. Thursday at the school, 410 S. Howard St., will also feature carnival-style games, a style studio, dunk tank, dinner and treats. Most activities range from 50 cents to $1 each or all-inclusive wristbands are available for $6, excluding the dunk tank, jail and style studio.

All proceeds benefit Sharpstein PTA-sponsored projects, reports the Walla Walla Public Schools Week in Review online newsletter.

It’s been a decade since the Blue Mountain Humane Society settled into its digs at 7 E. George St. and that’s cause for celebration.

From 1:30-3:30 p.m. Saturday, the society is hosting The Big 10 and offering reduced adoption fees, and free shelter tours, games and prizes, a petting zoo, dunk tank, hot dogs and more. The Ice Cube will sell home-made snow cones and pet accessories will be available for sale at the All-Pet Network. Call 525-2452 for more details.

An anonymous tip line for school safety is on tap via SafeSchools LiveTip. The tollfree line is accessible around the clock all year long at 1-866-548-3847 ext. 570.

“As a student or parent, you have the power to keep our school district safe. Administrators rely on you to be their eyes and ears — letting them know when a member of our schools or a district building is in danger. Be a life saver and help stop school crises before they happen,” the Walla Walla Public Schools Week in Review online newsletter reported.

The tip line is completely anonymous to report school violence, such as weapons, bomb threats, fights; school damage, including vandalism or theft; gang activity; physical/sexual abuse or harassment; discrimination; or drug and alcohol issues.

Messages are transcribed and emailed to the assigned district contacts. In the case of an emergency, district administrators are called at work, home, or on their cell phones.
