ChargerFest & International Festival

No more EWTSChargerFest

We are excited about the new tradition ChargerFest in place of the Evening with the Stars.

November 15, 2014  -  12 – 4 pm

Carnival, Fine Arts Performances, and International Fest

 

ChargerFest LogoThe 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.
