What does it cost?
It’s $18 for the first child enrolled, and $12 for each additional kid. If you want to help out all evening, you can receive an $8 refund. Make sure to check the box on the registration form to volunteer.
This price includes a pizza dinner, water, a treat, and all events for the evening.
What should my kid bring?
Not much! For the movie portion of the evening, the kids will be allowed to lay out blankets and pillows to get comfortable on the cafeteria floor. This will only be about 30 minutes at the end of the night, so they may not need anything. No toys or stuffed animals will be allowed. Please label all items with your name in case they are misplaced. These items will be stored in the music room until they are needed.
Your kid will NOT need a water bottle, a meal, or anything electronic! We have it all covered!
Who is going to be watching my kid?
Neely teachers! Aren’t they wonderful? Each grade will be with a certified teacher and several teen/parent helpers all evening. PTO board members will supervise and organize the event. Only registered volunteers will be allowed through the south cafeteria doors to ensure your child’s safety.
Give me the nitty-gritty. How does this all work?
Arrive before the doors open at 4:45 and get in line by student last name. Teachers will verify your child’s information, attach allergy wristbands, and direct your kids where to go. You may walk them into the cafeteria to help them get comfortable if needed, but only registered volunteers may enter the school campus.
Then you’re off for a kid free evening! We will contact you if your child needs you, we promise, so go with a carefree heart!
Return between 8:30 and 9:00. The east cafeteria door will be open and we will need you to be patient as we match children and parents safely. Do not leave younger siblings in the car, please. You will pick up the card you signed at check-in and proceed into the waiting area. If we don’t recognize you, we may ask for ID. We have wranglers to collect your kids for you and the kids will meet you by the double doors. If you have a photo of them on your phone, have it available to show the wrangler to make finding the kids faster. A volunteer will match your check-in card to your child’s sticker at the end of the waiting area and you will be free to go.
*If you have a 6th grader, please use the remind app at pick-up to text the 6th grade team your child’s name and that you are in line and they will send your kid to the cafeteria.
