Event Inspiration Board at Guidepost Montessori

Posted by Ramandeep Girn on

Ain't No Party Like A Guidepost Party!

Looking for inspiration for fresh and exciting events? Our school leaders have been working hard to bring quality events and experiences to their current families while inviting new families to join in on the fun.

Best Practice Reminders:

  • Run 1 event per month since they are a great opportunity to engage new and existing families.
  • Each school has a monthly budget of $500. Consult with your RD to approve changes in your budget.
  • Create a flyer and social media graphic in MediaValet to share with your community!
  • If you have an event where you can invite prospective families, reach out to marketing on Wayfinder (3 week notice required) so that we can help drive attendance, RSVPs, and support  making your event a success!

Coming Soon: August

Cranbury is hosting an open house with The Fun Bus, a mobile "gym on wheels" offering fun activities for families with children ages 18 months - 7yrs in a colorful, fun and safe environment.

Branchburg is hosting an open house with a Kona Ice Truck to provide a tasty treat for current and prospective families.

Katy is hosting a Back to School Open House where families can shop our Guidepost Merchandise, take a "Back to School" picture and meet their guides all before the first day of the 2022-2023 school year! Fun prizes will be also be given away.

Katy's Scavenger Hunt at a local park.
"This was SUPER easy and we were able to market a lot to people who were already in the park. We had guides in their Guidepost shirts walking up to families with children and asking if they wanted to participate in our scavenger hunt. Once they finished, they came to our tables and received a special goodie bag from us and a tour packet of information!"
