Back to School Event – Welcome Back!

Whether you call your Back to School Event a Festival, Picnic, Night Out, Welcome Week, Party, Carnival, or something completely unique to your school, it is a time of year that is exciting to celebrate! These youth events are great for all types of schools, universities, colleges, and even the town and religious organizations to participate in.

It is an event that is perfect to boost student’s morale and show that the school, staff, and faculty appreciate their efforts. These events are also helpful in bringing students together to boost that school pride.

Who can participate in Back to School Events?

A Back to School Event can be held for an entire campus or a single satellite location. There is no limit to this great opportunity to get to know other students, faculty, staff, parents, potential students and see the positive aspects that the school provides. The best part of planning these events is that you don’t have to do it all.

Committees are very helpful in dividing the workload among many participants. It still allows general oversight to all aspects of the event. Also, professionals like Elite Event Services can provide guidance in picking activities, games, inflatables, prizes, crafts and food items to meet your needs. We have worked with large crowds to provide everything needed.

Making Back to School Event Successful

The most important part of planning a successful event of this nature is to be organized. Keep detailed binders containing sections with all the items covered by the committee. This may include Budget, Advertising, Prizes/Raffle Items, Food and Beverage, Site Layout, Logistics, Volunteers, Schedule of Events, Entertainment/Activities, etc. This will help to keep contracts and notes in one area.  Each committee head can have a binder covering their area of oversight.

For even the smallest event, this will help you to find answers quickly and reduce the stress involved with planning. It will also provide immense support to the person who handles this job next year and helps with budgeting for the future. This is also helpful in including notes after the event.

Which vendors were great to work with and you would recommend and which would you not? What would you change? What advertising worked and what didn’t? Post event meetings can often be overlooked.  They are very important in building on the event from year to year to make it even more successful!

Set the Students up for a GREAT school year and give them something to CELEBRATE!!
