Jose Ortega school carnival--Saturday, May 22

If you're interested in checking out Jose Ortega, this is a great opportunity...

Jose Ortega is throwing the school yard open to the community this year for its annual Umoja (“unity” in Swahili) festival. In global fashion, the day will include live American jazz music, salsa dancing, limbo contests, and a tale of the Chinese diaspora to Guyana as told through food. A real-life carnival tent of 20 games for families will entice fair-goers to play to win prizes and Supervisor John Avalos will take part in the games and a dance contest. Ortega’s PTA is hoping to raise as much as $30,000 in their biggest fund-raising effort in years. Profits will go to fill funding gaps the school faces during the current budget crisis.

When: Saturday. May 22 / 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Where: Jose Ortega Elementary / 400 Sargent St.
