Cakes Needed for Cake Walk
One of our most popular Witches Delight traditions is the Cake Walk. It is made possible by everyone who graciously donates decorated homemade or store bought cakes. Many cakes are needed to satisfy all of our participants (250 plus) and our Santa Rita bakers can be competitive too!
Contest categories are:
- Best Santa Rita themed cake
- Scariest cake
- Grossest cake
- Best Halloween cake
- Best Los Altos themed cake
If you want to enter the contest, please make sure your cake is marked with student name, grade, and teacher name.
Sign up to donate a cake or two. Volunteers will also be needed to run the activity and manage the prizes.
Cake drop off is Thursday, October 24th, from 2:30 to 4:00, or Friday, October 25th, from 8:00 am till 2:00. Drop off all cakes in the Multipurpose room.
Help Sponsor the Event
Witches Delight is one of Santa Rita’s biggest fundraisers of the year. Sponsors are needed!
By sponsoring Witches' Delight you will expose your business to 500+ local families that attend this community-wide event and will also help the Santa Rita PTA continue to enrich our children's educational experience.
Volunteers Needed for Witches' Delight!
Volunteers will be recruited by the Room Representatives for grades K-5 (6th graders will be running their Snack Shack). Each class will own a booth or activity. We will still need additional help with Set-Up, Tear Down, and Food.
Please remember that all children must be accompanied by an adult. Also, parents are responsible for removing all backpacks and instruments from Santa Rita after school. Santa Rita Elementary is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
Thank you to all of the Santa Rita Community for your help in continuing to make this a fantastic tradition at our school. A special thanks goes out to our Witches Delight Volunteers, Auction Donors, and Sponsors!
