About volunteering at the festival

There are many ways to help with our 2018 Arctic Blast Eighth Annual Fall Festival including sponsorship, donations, helping with setup or cleanup, and assisting with parking. To volunteer, please use the Sign-up Genius form. Be sure to use the correct options on the form, depending on whether you’re a teacher or parent, or an outside volunteer.

How you can help!

Here’s a list of easy ways to help make this year’s festival a huge success. As a special thanks to all of our volunteers and donors, we also offer special incentives and deals, as indicated below. Check out our Tickets and Order Forms page for more information and to claim your benefit for participating.

If you have a business you would like to ask to sponsor the festival, please contact the school for assistance and to pick up sponsorship packets to distribute. The best part of referring sponsors is that you enjoy many of the same benefits as the sponsors!
We particularly need stickers, pencils, glow sticks, and lots and lots of silly string! Also, please consider donating a door prize. That would be super helpful and much appreciated! We also need volunteers to loan coolers, heavy-duty extension cords, fold out tables, etc. Please click on the In-Kind Donation Sign-up to donate or loan items for this event.[/fusion_toggle
We need volunteers to help supervise booths and games, monitor and direct parking, sell tickets, assist with setup and cleanup, and to help manage our youth group volunteers. Volunteers can sign up for shifts anywhere from one to all four hours of the festival! Please click on the Parent and Teacher Volunteer Sign-up link to offer your invaluable help.[/fusion_toggle
Purchasing wristbands and T-shirts for your family and friends is a great way to support our festival. Anyway you can participate helps the festival (and our school) to be a success. Especially, we really need you to help spread the word by talking to your neighbors, posting flyers to local businesses, and by sharing our Facebook announcements.
Donations help the school cover the costs of the event, contribute toward our science program, earn parents volunteer time, and can also provide additional benefits offered to our official sponsors. Any donation is incredibly important and very much appreciated! The New School Montessori Center is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. All contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by the law.


Most importantly, come to the festival and have fun! Bring your friends and family. Share the word, especially to local folks and businesses in Holly Springs. We look forward to seeing you all on October 12th!

Please contact The New School or email us at info[at]montessoricenter[dot]org if you can help us with any of the above.
