BooFest 2017

The Rochester Public School Foundation (RPSF) is announcing the 3rd Annual Boo Fest Carnival and Educational Enrichment Experience.   The Carnival, at Century High School on Saturday, October 28, 2017, will last from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm.  This year’s event, geared at preschool thru middle school students, will offer a fun, educational and unique opportunity for families in Rochester and the surrounding communities.  All proceeds will support additional Rochester Public School programs.  "Boo Fest is our only fundraising event," says long-time Board Member and School Administrator Scott Mahle, adding, "The support we receive through this event provides valuable funding that allows us to enrich the student experience, award grants to classroom teachers, and present college scholarships to a number of graduating seniors."


This year, Boo Fest will have a new section, titled “Scary Schoolhouse” which provides an emphasis on fun and educational topics.  There are 9 courses available including: Survive the Sea (Buoyancy), Build a Body (Anatomy), The Scream Cream (Freezing Point), Dracula’s Dream (Blood Biology), The Magicians Workshop (Chemical Change), The Golden Snitch (Elasticity), Potions Class (polymer chemistry), Pumpkin Volcanos (Chemical Reaction), and Pollination (Botany).  The Carnival has also brought back the hugely popular “Haunted Hallway” for a little scarier experience.


Activity tickets are available at the door: $10 for 20 tickets and $20 for 50 tickets.  Most activities are only 2-3 tickets.  Lunch will be available for purchase from BB’s Pizza.


The Rochester Public School Foundation is an independent, nonprofit foundation that connects the community and our schools to advance and inspire educational opportunities for all students.  More information on the foundation can be found at
