Now’s the Time to Finalize School Events

Posted on Feb 12, 2016


Parenthood brings new meaning to that old saying, "Time flies when you're having fun!" As a parent, you've likely experienced this a time or two: Your elementary schooler has just said or done something oh-so-grown-up, and all you can think is "Where did my baby go? I blinked and missed it!"

Similarly, you may think you have all the time in the world to plan that end of the year class party or school fundraiser, but before you know it, you'll be scrambling to put it together at the last minute. Avoid the stress of planning a last-minute event; go ahead and book your party or fundraiser now at your local Monkey Joe's

There are several reasons to plan ahead, including: 

  • Peace of mind. Pulling together an event at the last minute can take the fun right out of it. By planning ahead, you can stress less and actually enjoy the excitement. 
  • Getting on the calendar. Many schools are already finalizing their calendars for the 2016-2017 school year, so if you want your event to be included you may need to take care of it sooner rather than later. 
  • Setting up success. The sooner you book your event, the more options you'll have. As the year goes on, bookings fill up and there's more comptetition for prime time slots. Booking earlier will allow you more options when selecting a date, plus it gives you more time to promote your event--a key to the success of any fundraiser!

At Monkey Joe's, we make school fundraisers and other kids events easy for parents and fun for kids! Check out our Fundraising page for more information, and get the ball rolling on your group event today. After all, there's no time like the present!
