Annual Spring Fair
Our Annual Spring Fair is a long-held tradition of Mount Hebron Nursery School, and one of Parent Group’s largest yearly fundraisers. The Spring Fair committee is in charge of booking food and entertainment, enlisting financial sponsors, organizing and presenting the Silent Auction, managing the class projects that are sold the day of the fair, managing the Plant Sale, and delegating responsibilities to parent volunteers and teenage helpers. Volunteers are needed for the committee, as well as to help with set-up, tear down, and managing the events on the weekend of the Fair.
Parent Group a hosts an adults-only, formal night every other year to create the most profitable fundraiser for the school. This team takes on a wide-scale Silent Auction, as well as makes decisions about venue, food, order of events and entertainment. Our next Gala is scheduled for Fall 2022. Volunteers are currently needed for the planning committee.
Teacher Appreciation Week
In Spring of each year, Parent Group spends a week honoring our hard-working teachers and staff. The Teacher Appreciation Week committee plans a theme, with daily food, treats and surprises for our teachers. Volunteers are needed for the committee, as well as to help provide breakfasts and lunch for the teachers, decorate their meeting spaces and supply thoughtful touches. Room Parents (not the committee) help organize and present the Favorite Things basket to their teachers.
Every fall, Parent Group presents an outdoor movie night. This school-wide fundraiser involves movies on a big screen, pizza, popcorn and fun for the whole family. Volunteers are needed to manage ticket sales, help coordinate food and beverages, and are responsible for the set-up and tear down of the technical equipment.
Parent Group partners with local restaurants for MHNS Restaurant Nights, where MHNS families and supporters can have dinner with a portion of the proceeds benefitting MHNS. Volunteers are needed to make arrangements with restaurants and to be on-site as an MHNS Greeter during the evening.
Other Social Events
Throughout the year, Parent Group hosts other social events to help foster a sense of community among our families. Past events have included: Mix & Mingle, Retail Therapy Night, Bingo, and more. Have an idea for an event we haven’t tried yet? We’d love your help to make it happen! Volunteers are needed to plan the events, manage ticket sales (if needed), coordinate food and beverages, set-up/tear down the event, and be on-site to host the event.
Volunteers are needed to help with other Parent Group fundraisers: staffing the annual Scholastic Book Fair, helping our students make beautiful Art to Remember, helping distribute the plants from our Spring Plant Sale. And we’re always looking for new fundraising options so that we can continue to support MHNS initiatives.
