Spots are all INDOORS and cost $35 for an approximately 10 x 10 sized space. All vendor fees go to support the Moncure PTO.

Can’t wait to see you there!


Smencils & Spirit Sticks Sale is Next Week!

The “world’s only gourmet scented pencils” are coming to Moncure Elementary next week! Did you know Smencils are made from 100% recycled newspapers? Did you know that the scents are guaranteed to last two years? And most importantly, did you know that our students love their Smencils?

Plus!… this is our students chance to grab their favorite Spirit Sticks and show their favorite things and their awesome school spirit!

Send your student in with a few dollars to grab their favorite before they’re gone!

We would also love your help selling both next week from 8:30-9am in the front hallway October 22nd-26th. Sign up at, or email us at [email protected] if you are interested in helping. And thanks for your amazing support of our school and students!
