Durbin Creek celebrates Dr. Seuss and more

CONTRIBUTED PHOTO Students having a wacky time at the Durbin Creek Elementary School Wacky Carnival that benefited a Dreams Come True Child.

Durbin Creek Elementary School hosted Wacky World of Durbinville Carnival on March 2 in honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday.

The families in attendance were able to enjoy entertainment like a magician and wacky science show, crafts, storytelling, games, carnival rides, book fair and of course carnival style food.

Local vendors added to the fun with wacky hair, face painting, balloon fun and caricature drawings. Our own school celebrities (aka our teachers) also helped entertain the children by reading Dr. Seuss books.

Besides having fun, the reason behind hosting the carnival was to provide a dream for a sick child. This is the fourth year that the PTO from Durbin Creek has sponsored a child’s dream through the Dreams Come True organization.

The students participated in a change drive during the week that brought in $2,000. They are still working toward a goal of $4,000. Our dream child Gabby is 6 years old and battling neurofibromatosis.

Anna and Elsa, princesses from the Disney movie Frozen, came to our school to surprise Gabby and reveal her dream — a trip to Disney World. The reveal party was made possible by donations from Girly-Girl Parteas Inc. Gabby and her parents begin their trip on March 16; they will be in Orlando for a full week.

Event chairs Jennifer Zunic and Melinda Chesser did an outstanding job of organizing the day and coordinating all the events. The PTO would like to thank everyone who came and supported the event. Donations for Gabby’s dream are still being accepted. Checks can be made out to DCE PTO; write “Gabby’s Dream” in the memo line. The school address is 4100 Racetrack Road, St. Johns, FL 32259.
