General School Event Tips
General School Events Tips
Before planning any school event, one must obtain permission from school officials to not only host an event, but also to use school facilities. For late-night event or field trips, one might also need to get parents' permission and ask for volunteers to chaparone.
Color Me Thrilled
Choose colors that complement the theme. Use the color palatte to guide decision-making when it comes to the backdrop for photos, decorations, and invitations. Don't give partygoers a headache by choosing hard-to-find colors or colors that don't blend well together.
Save the Date
Check the school calendar to make sure the event doesn't clash with other major happenings. Then advertise in advance to assure the best turnout.
Be smart about budgetting the money allotted to party planning. Ask for donations from local businesses to save cash for extras that will enhance the party. Fundraise with candy, T-shirt, or food sales.
Keep it PG
Don't upset school officials, teachers, and parent by playing inappropriate music. If a DJ is hired, give him or her clear guidelines on what music to play and what is considered appropriate. All activities should also be tasteful.
