Sophomore Haunted House Sign Up Genius #2

Hello all!

We are very excited about the sophomore Haunted Circus next Saturday evening, 10/30 from 6-8 pm outdoors at the high school. Many of your children are involved in this fun event, and it is a big fundraiser for our class.

We are sending this expanded Sign Up Genius now that we can see the weather forecast for the next 10 days. So far it looks like we’ll be able to hold this event even with a few possible showers, but we will make a final call on Monday evening and will let you know if anything changes.

Sign Up Genius: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040b44aea62ca57-class2

We would love to have more volunteers especially for Saturday evening 5:30-8:30 pm. And if you are unable to volunteer, we would love for contributions of food for the sales at the Snack Shack to defray costs to our class. To see the suggested food items, you need to copy and paste the Amazon link. (Food contributions don’t need to be those exact brands–those are just a general suggestion to show general amounts and for those who would like to order online.) Food/supply donations can be brought to Proctor Field on Saturday, 10/30 between 12-2 pm or if you’d like to drop off at a different time, reply to this email and we can set something up.

For those of you with children involved in the event, we’d love for you to be prepared to help them source their props/costumes and to help with set up and break down of their scenes if you are available. You don’t need to sign up, you can just show up!

Thank you all for your generous contributions of your time and food items. The kids are doing a great job with their planning and we are looking forward to a fun community event. Haunted Circus flyer is attached!

If you have any questions, please reach out!

Thank you!

Tom K., Susan R., Allyson J., Sara O., Jay V., Peg B., Kim P., Sally F., Susan D.

We hope you and your children have had a great start to the school year.  We wanted to provide a quick update regarding the parent social for the class of 2024.  Given the busy Fall schedule with the Boat Cruise and the upcoming Haunted House along with the need to have an outdoor gathering, we have decided to hold the parent social in the Spring.  Please let us know if you’re interested in hosting or helping to plan the event.

In the meantime, we encourage anyone who wants to get to know other parents and students to join us in the preparation and execution of the Haunted House on October 30th.  We kicked off that effort yesterday with a productive meeting with faculty advisors, the Haunted House committee and about forty engaged, energetic students! Thanks to the many parents who have already volunteered.  Please let us know if you’re interested and/or if you have any questions.

Thanks,

Kim Pelzar, Sally Farzaneh and Sara Osborn (Parent Advisors)

Sophomore Haunted House

PARENT VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

Dear Class of 2024 Parents & Guardians,

The Sophomore Boat Cruise was a big success. We were pleased to have most of the class there!

Now it’s time to start preparing for the next class activity, the Haunted House, which will be held on Saturday, October 30th from 6-8pm at the Weston High School. Tom Kilgallen and Susan Ryan are leading the charge with the support of the parent advisors (Sally Farzaneh, Kim Pelzar and Sara Osborn), and we’ll all be meeting with the students to kick things off this week!

The Haunted House is an opportunity for the students to organize an activity as a team and to raise money, given it’s their primary fundraising event of the year. Traditionally, the sophomore class picks a theme, designs and does the creative work and setup, and then staffs the event. The parents provide lots of logistical support and fill in where needed, and this is where we could use your help.

PLEASE consider helping as we will need a number of people to make this event successful. Here are some ideas of what we need help with, though we can also accept help from people who just want to be given some tasks to do and not lead a section. Later we will post a signup genius to the group for smaller tasks, but we’d love some volunteers now for:

• Creative and implementation work for the Haunted House and Children’s Area
• Finance who will help with ticket sales, cash box and credit transactions, keeping track of expenditures and reimbursements, revenue, and donations.
• Electronics to help with lighting, sound, power, and other items
• Advertising and communication
• Transportation and construction of sets, props, and equipment
• Setup, breakdown, and staffing the day and night of the event
• Other things will come up!

This will be a fun project, and we are really excited. Please consider helping the Class of 2024 have a fun and successful Haunted House!

Please respond to this email if you’re interested in helping and let us know if you have any questions.

We look forward to your partnership and participation in the coming weeks!
