Sexton Mountain Elementary carnival to provide family fun to support school programs


Volunteers from throughout community gear up for third-annual event

Face painting, cotton candy, games, pizza and obstacle courses are expected to draw hundreds of community members to the annual Sexton Mountain Elementary Community Carnival today at the school from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at 15645 S.W. Sexton Mountain Drive.

More than 100 volunteers from Aloha High School, Arts and Communication Magnet Academy, Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue, Beaverton Police Department, Washington County 911 and the Boy Scouts will be on hand to provide information and giveaways.

As the elementary’s largest fundraiser, the carnival supports the school’s activities including the science fair, art fair, art literacy program, technology and music programs.

Polly Campbell, a third-year volunteer and mother of a Sexton Mountain second-grader, always looks forward to the carnival's atmosphere.

“It feels like small-town fun," she said. "People from all over the area come together. I always see people I know having fun.”
