School Activities

 

Polka Hop Dance


Find a good local polka band to come and play at this dance, inviting students and parents and run as a regular dance. Price of tickets may increase due to the cost of hiring the polka band, but the profit should be high as parents are invited as well.

Fundraising

Horror Movie Festival


A school wide event, Horror Movie Festival is an event in which all students of the school congregate in the school cafeteria or a location of your choice to watch horror films. This can also act as a fundraiser, charging so much to see the movie and then costs for concessions. To make this event a success, show double or triple features with one guaranteed shocker. Avoid classic movies as they have been shown before and blockbusters as they are more expensive to rent. Obtain projectors from the school and use the auditorium screen or something very large so that a big audience can watch the movie. Advertisement is very important, and usually word of mouth is very effective as well as putting up posters and having students dress as movie villains the week leading up to the event.




Ice Cream Social


A fundraising event, ice cream socials are great ways for students to congregate and meet new people while allowing for the school to fundraise. The key to this event is to sell tickets in advance so that the appropriate amount of ice cream, toppings, and utensils can be bought. Be sure to check out how much your supplies cost so that your profit is maximized.




Kiss-o-grams


The perfect activity for a little money and a lot of fun, Kiss-o-grams is a great fundraiser to hold during the month of February. Sell cute candy cards that can be exchanged on Valentine’s Day, with personal messages written by students and sent to the specified recipient. With this message, accompanies a bundle of Hershey’s kisses tied with festive ribbons.




Benefit Basketball Games


Hold a basketball game to raise money for a local cause. The opposing teams can be popular pairings such as students vs. teachers, or student counterculture vs. local police, or coaches vs. athletes. Having students dress as cheerleaders is also a fun way to draw the crowd and make the event enjoyable and spirited. Admission will be charged, and all the profit will go to the cause of your choice.
