On behalf of Principal Amanda Compton and the E.A. Harrold Hornets, we would like to give a huge “Thank you” for making the 2014 Fall Carnival a huge success. E.A. Harrold had plenty of sun, fun, and most of all support from surrounding businesses’ for the event. Some of the featured attractions this year were Mr. Games Mobile Games, Space Walk, and Chuck-E- Cheese. There were tons of fun for all age groups including face painting, wacky hair, and the most famous silent auction. Laughs and giggles could be heard around the school campus all week as the students anxiously awaited the carnival. The carnival countdown sign secretly changed prior to the student’s arrival and the students wore their pajamas to school on the day before the carnival, which is now known as “Carnival-Eve!” Special thanks to Mrs. Campbell, the Art Teacher, for capturing these memorable moments via photos. The 2014 Fall Carniv al sponsors were the parents of E.A. Harrold, faculty/staff of E.A. Harrold, the PTA of E.A.

Giving a car to one is just a small way to give back to them.”
There are applications to fill out. They can be mailed back to Automotive Pro Tek, 2058 Tipton Road in Atoka or bring back to my shop by Dec. 1.
