The graduating class of 2012 had their first grad fundraiser October 28th in the school gymnasium.  The CarnEVIL was the most successful of past graduating classes, raising over $2,000 dollars to put towards the price of tickets to dry grad and grad cruise.

The gym was filled with activities for all ages, but directed more at the elementary wing of the school.  Activities included, Donut Rings, Ghost Pops, Caricature, Shoot the Goulie, Cake Walk, Fortune Telling, and a Photo Booth.

Elementary students brought their parents, grandparents and friends, to the event. Many had good things to say: “It’s fabulous, lot’s of different things to do; I like the participation of the high school students,” said one participant.

“So fun! It’s my first year and I love it. It’s better than we thought it would be. Our favorite was the Caricature,” said an elementary school parent.

Despite job action by teachers, the graduating students managed to do all of the work on their own. The students came together in GRAD council to discuss what needed to be done and by whom.  They separated the activities among their majors. They took care of set-up, needed equipment and running the booth during the CarnEVIL.

When asked, the graduating class had nothing but good things to say about how they felt they did on the CarnEVIL.  “Surprising numbers of kids came through. I think they wanted an opportunity to be part of something,” said Lucy Clarkson, one of the student organizers. At the Spooky Treats table Heather Nathan felt, “It [went] very well. Most of the [desserts] were gone in the first hour!”

Others simply enjoyed running their booth. Photo major, Emily Ciavarella, had a booth called “Shout out! Hey mom!” She helped run the photo booth that had a line up to the dessert table.

Successfully overcoming every challenge, the graduating class of Langley Fine Arts are on their way to having a good kick start to their final year.
