Our theme is NEON, so make sure to wear neon!
Kid Parties
  • Kid Parties are for any grade, can be grade specific, girl only, boy only, or co-ed. Kid Party themes include swimming, kickball, painting, spa, outdoor movie night, anything else that is kid-related. Get creative! 
  • We are in need of Kid Party hosts. When you host a Kid Party, you are responsible for the cost, details, theme, location, etc., and spots for the party are sold at Hot Dog Supper.
Raffle Baskets
  • Classes sponsor different themed baskets that are then raffled off at Hot Dog Supper. These baskets are a great way to raise money and are very popular! A note about the raffle baskets will go home soon in folders. Tickets will be 50 cents each. 
  • Meal tickets and raffle tickets will be available for purchase online soon. You will also be able to purchase tickets at school – watch for that information in the near future.
  • If you are interested in hosting a Kid Party, please email Lisa Bielss at Lbielss23@gmail.com or call/text her at 817-980-2893 with questions.
