Community Events

Below is a list of community building events that are organized and run by Schoolhouse families!

(Current Families: see the Family Portal for dates, RSVP and volunteer signups for these events.)


Halloween Party

Come join us for some frightfully good fun at our annual Halloween Party! Families can admire each other’s costumes, climb the play structure, and start some games on the field. This is a potluck so please bring something to share.* Don’t forget to wear your costume!**

Fall Celebration

A Schoolhouse Family Picnic (for current families only) to celebrate the start of fall and welcome new families to the school! Bring a lunch for your family, blankets, balls, frisbees, hula hoops, and any other fun items you like. ~September

Winter Lights Celebration

Our annual Winter Lights Celebration and potluck* celebrates the Winter Solstice. Started by the school’s founding teachers, Schoolhouse families come together to eat, sing, and laugh. There will be art projects and a musical performance. The evening ends with a lantern ceremony. And for the students, Pajama Day is the next day! ~December

Pancake Breakfast

With games, face painting, and plenty of (nut free) pancakes (with gf options) for all, the Pancake Breakfast - now in its sixth year - is an event that celebrates community and family fun. Students, parents, relatives, friends, prospective families, and teachers and their families are all invited. The cost is $10 for adults, $5 for kids 5 and over, and under 5s are free. All money raised at the door goes to Schoolhouse to cover the cost of putting on the event. ~February

Spring Celebration (& Book Swap)

This is the mirror event to the fall picnic, celebrating the spring equinox. Two inspiring parents also added a book swap component last year. Bring your own lunch, picnic blanket, and some balls or other outdoor toys! Also, bring any books you do not want anymore and trade them in for some new ones. ~March

Welcome Party

Every year, Erin Cooney, co-founder of Schoolhouse and Board chair, opens up her lovely home to host an adult only welcome event for new families. Current families and new families mingle, eat great food, and begin to bond over children, summer, and the school year to come. ~May

Grandfriends and Family Day

Grandparents and Special Friends Day is an event where grandparents and close friends visit and experience first-hand what Schoolhouse is truly about. This event helps build stronger connections and increased appreciation for Schoolhouse among our extended community. The guests will have a chance to mingle, look at projects created by the children and visit classrooms. Light refreshments will be provided for all guests and teachers. ~May

Hang-out (Grades 6-8)

Hang-out is a social event specifically for the oldest Schoolhouse students (grades 6-8). The kids and maybe the parents (who will stand a good distance away) will come together to celebrate the year! Possible events include bowling, miniature golf, or spending time at a board game studio. ~ May
