The Best COVID-Friendly School Event Idea [w/Andrea Bateman]

Mar 02, 2021

Today I'm joined by Andrea Bateman, Director of Marketing & Enrollment at St. Philip Lutheran School, to discuss how she builds community and family interaction at her school.

In the past year, we've seen a complete shift in community-building strategies in schools. With safety regulations, social distancing, and having to switch to virtual events, schools have had to get creative to keep families engaged.

For Andrea, this is Simon Says: Car Edition, where families meet via vehicle in the parking lot and given a series of funny commands. (Goodie bags included!)

In her words, "Don't be afraid to take someone else's idea and make it work for your school." So, feel free to use this one at your school. 😉

What does your school do to build community in these times? Have any great ideas you'd like to share? I'd love to hear from you!

Join our Monthly Small School Leaders Meet-up to share your ideas and hear what other small & independent schools are doing! Our next meet-up is Thursday, March 11 at 12pm EST. Sign-up here!
