2021 Spooky Dash ‘n Bash

Mark your calendars now to join us for the 2021 Spooky Dash ‘n Bash on Friday, October 29th from 3-5pm! The Dash ‘n Bash is Prospect’s family social event of the school year and our premier fundraising event. Due to lack of fundraising in 2020, we are hoping this will be our strongest year yet! 100% of fundraising proceeds will go to the school to fund educational tools as well as PTO clubs and events for students throughout the year.
Logistics and Timing:
Teachers will lead students from their class Halloween parties to drop their school bags and extra costume items at the MPR (organized by classroom and watched over by a volunteer). Then students will be led over to the Prospect Park tennis court start area.
– K – 2 at 2:45pm
– Grades 3 – 5 at 3:00pm 
Each class will then run the Prospect path starting with Kindergarten, finishing on the path near the school.    Post-run, students can then meet their family and head directly over to the Bash.  (Kindergartners must be signed-out by a parent or guardian with their classroom race volunteer.)
– Students can pick up their items at MPR when departing Bash
– Bash ends at 5:00pm
The Bash will include lots of seasonal fun for the whole family, including:
– Donated snacks and drinks
– Outdoor tent for shelter
– DJ
– Pumpkin painting craft
– Huge obstacle course slide
– Rock climbing wall
– Haunted house maze
– Bouncy pumpkin houses
– Carnival games
– Petting zoo
– Pie throwing for top fundraisers! (More info below)
