MLK Elementary Year-End Carnival!

Please volunteer! Sign up here!

MLK Carnival (1)On Friday, June 16, from 4:00 – 7:30 pm, the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School Parent-Teacher Organization is sponsoring a Year-End Carnival for all families, staff members, and neighbors of MLK Elementary. The carnival has two purposes: 1. fun! and 2. fundraising.


  • Hot dogs, pizza strips, popcorn, and snow cones!
  • Carnival games with prizes!
  • Obstacle course bouncy house!
  • Raffle for wonderful classroom-made items! We’ll be sharing photos of the classroom-created raffle items in emails (check out our first one below) and on Facebook all this week.
  • Dessert raffle: 20 home-made items from MLK families!
  • The Providence Public Library Bookmobile! Kids can pick up their library cards on the spot and be ready for summer reading. Check backpacks for library card application forms! Return forms by Wednesday, and library cards for summer reading will be available at the bookmobile.
  • Face-painting, music and dancing, and much more!


The MLK PTO raises money to sponsor field trips, academic enrichment for all students, teacher appreciation events, in-school assemblies, classroom projects, and much more. We need approximately $10,000 per year–which is $20 per student. This year, in addition to asking families and supporters to contribute donations, we want to celebrate our community and have fun. The carnival will do both: raise funds while we have fun. If you’d like to know more about ways to donate to support all students at MLK Elementary, please click here.


We need more than 50 volunteers for the carnival to be successful. This means you! Please contribute a couple of hours of your time so that our children can have fun and celebrate the end of the school year. Sign up today to help, and please ask your friends and family to do the same. You don’t need to be a King parent to help! You just need to have a couple of extra hours and a big heart. Thank you!

All volunteers and donors will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win tickets to Paw Sox, Providence Bruins, or Providence College Friars basketball games, or gift certificates to local restaurants! This raffle is only for those who volunteer or donate, so please let us know that you’re able to help so you can be entered to win!
