In 2009/10 I'll be the new "social planner" for our parent team at school. I thought I'd put a shout out to CafeMom for ideas on what can help bring parents closer together. Here's what we do already:
Back to school BBQ, Fall carnival, Snow Day, Fairy Tale Overnighter, End of school BBQ.
I want to add: parent social gatherings w/o kids, education sessions (we're montessori), New parent packets, Call a new parent program, minature golf day.
Let me know if you have any thoughts on a time you entered a new school and felt isolated and had ideas on what would have made you felt less like that.
