ChargerFest & International Festival

ChargerFest LogoChargerFest
Carnival, Fine Arts Performances, and International Fest

November 15, 2014
12 – 4 pm

The exciting afternoon of ChargerFest includes an international fest celebrating our language magnet focus, fine arts performances showcasing the performing arts talents of our students, carnival games and activities, kid-oriented raffles, prizes, food, and lots of fun.

We envision ChargerFest as both a FUN-raiser for our students, siblings, family, friends, and community, and a FUND-raiser to assist our fine arts, foreign languages, and athletics departments in meeting their operating budgets.

The teachers and administration at POMS do an amazing job of stretching budget dollars, but state funding only goes so far. In order to ensure that students have the unique extracurricular opportunities and the quality academic experiences that POMS is known for, we rely on parental and corporate support.
