The Carnival For Las Virgenes Schools is Back!


The Carnival 2014

The Foundation for Las Virgenes Schools is once again hosting their Back to School Carnival next month in Agoura Hills, bringing three days of family fun and entertainment to the community. The event will take place at Whizin Market Square (28914 Roadside Drive) September 11-13.

Admission to the event is free and proceeds benefit the local schools. “Over the past four years, [The Foundation] has supported the Las Virgenes Unified School District by raising over a million dollars in privately donated funds to hire classroom teachers, reduce classroom sizes and expand counseling programs,” Glassberg said.

According to their mission, The Foundation’s goal is to help ensure that every child, in every school in our community, has the opportunities and resources to succeed and reach their full potential. “We are committed to supporting our school district with the resources necessary to ensure long term success for our students and our community,” said Glassberg.

Glassberg promises that the carnival will offer fun for the entire family. “There will be rides for all ages including a ferris wheel, fun house, gigantic slide and much more,” she said. There will also be a variety of games and prizes as well as novelty items for sale.
