    BOOKING THE MAGICIAN

    Booking the magician is the most important step in preparing for this event.  Arrangements should be made as soon as possible to secure a reservation.  Al-mazing the Magician was an excellent choice for magician (412-600-4903 or www.almazing.com).  He kept the kids engaged and entertained.  Weird Eric was used several years ago too --  (412.867.5701 or contact @weirderic.com) have performed shows in the past.  Feedback is Eric was funny, but chattiness lost kids’ attention. 

    INVITATION/RSVP FLYER

    Invitations/RSVPs should go out 4 weeks before the event and should be due 2 weeks before the social.  This will allow enough time for ordering sufficient amounts of treats.  Sample Kindergarten Social Invitation/RSVP can be found in the “Kindergarten Social” bin in the PTO closet.  E-Alerts should be used as reminders.
