Events and Programs

Fall Fundraiser

Buy and sell cookie dough and other treats and win prizes! This year we also have an awesome Boone travel mug available. Forms and catalogs will appear in Thursday folders.

Math Pentathalon

The Mathematics Pentathlon is a program of interactive problem-solving games, supportive curricular and instructional activities, and assessment tools for students in grades K-7. The PTA and Boone have established this program in conjunction with the Pentagon organization to bring this new and exciting after school club that challenges each player in a competition style board game setting. These board games challenge the player to creatively think of math problem solutions as well as strategies to win against an opponent. We are starting with the 4th and 5th grade students and will increase the grades as coaches come on board. In order for this program to be successful-we need parent volunteers.

Fall Festival

A traditional Fall festival with fun and games. The kids are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes for a costume contest. We'll have game booths, food, and fun.

Spring Carnival

The PTA holds its annual Spring Carnival fundraiser in April. There are tons of games, food, prizes, bouncy castles and other rides. We also hold a silent auction. Please contact Sherina Warstler for more information: 

PTA Nights

Stay tuned for information on PTA nights.

Spirit Nights

Throughout the year there will be Spirit Nights at local eateries to raise money for our programs.

The Kids Philosophy Slam

The Kids Philosophy Slam is an annual program designed to make philosophy fun and accessible to all kids in grades K—12, as well as to help promote critical thinking skills and encourage dialogue with other students and adults. The Philosophy Slam asks kids to answer a philosophical question such as "What is the meaning of life?" Depending on their age, kids can express themselves in words, artwork, poetry or song. Each grade level has its own national winner. Winners will be posted on their website. The Kids Philosophy Slam question for 2013 is "Which is More Powerful, Love or Hate?" Check out Boone entries from previous years here.


The Yearbook Staff invites students and parents to send photos for the yearbook. If you’ve got great photos of school and community events of your friends just having fun, we’d like to see them. Our photographers can’t be everywhere let us get as many photos as possible to create a terrific book everyone will want to have.
