Pecan Grove Primary will host its sixth annual Winter Carnival from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dec. 13.
The event will feature holiday music performed by students and book readings will be available throughout the morning. As part of the school’s #sitstrapsave awareness program, the Alliance Safety Council of Our Lady of the Lake Hospital will be on hand to distribute 100 booster seats free, a news release from the school said. To be eligible for a booster seat the child must be present, weigh at least 40 pounds and be at least four years of age. Distribution times are 10:15 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. and are on a first-come, first-served basis. No one can enter the session after it begins. Those interested in receiving a booster seat should be prepared to stay for up to 45 minutes to receive information and a booster seat.
The carnival also will feature a pancake and sausage breakfast, photos with Santa Claus, Christmas crafts, face painting, cake walks, carnival-style games and gift raffles. Items for the raffle currently are being accepted, the release said.
Donations are appreciated and may be dropped off at the school office. Raffle tickets are being pre-sold in the office until 3 p.m., Dec. 12. Throughout the morning of the carnival, tickets will be available for $1 each. Drawings for gift raffles begin at 12:30 p.m. Contact Pecan Grove Primary at (225) 391-7450 for information.
