Another chance at planning a party! This event is all about welcoming Dana and Correia teachers and staff back to school. A great opportunity to work with a friend or a small group.

Outdoor movies under the stars... who doesn't love that? This position involves coordinating two outdoor movie events on the Dana campus that are open to all Dana and Correia students & families. Typically there is one movie night in the fall and another in the spring. Setting up vendor sales, snacks, drinks, band performances, movie selection, logo wear sales and whatever else suits your fancy! This will require a committee of several volunteers and a lead chairperson or two to pull off
This position involves coordinating a unique experience for parents ONLY! This is a great opportunity for someone that is budget minded and likes to plan a big party, right down to the last detail, while also keeping FUNDRAISING as the main goal of the event. All ideas are welcome, from Casino Nights to Silent Auctions... the more creative the better!
