Community School's fundraisers allow us to gather and celebrate the "community of Community" while also supporting our students, faculty, and operations. Learn more about each of our signature fundraising events below.
Our annual Book Show is held in the fall and has been a tradition for more than 60 years! In collaboration with The Novel Neighbor, a mini bookstore is set up at school. Books are available for personal purchase, or to be purchased and donated to the school. 20% of the proceeds from the Book Show come back to the school for the purchase of even more books to supplement the school and classroom libraries.
Two highlights of the Book Show are Grandparents and Special Friends Day and the Guest Author Assembly. During Grandparents and Special Friends Day, grandparents or special friends are invited to come and shop with the students. Those who live out of town may opt to send a donation for their grandchild(ren). Each year, through the Marilyn Goldstein Memorial Guest Author Visit Fund, a guest author visits the school and talks to the students about the writing or illustrating process and their books.
Cornucopia is a dinner and auction held off-site every two years. Proceeds support tuition assistance, faculty professional development, and school operations. Cornucopia provides a fun and exciting way for families to come together to benefit all of our students and faculty.
Trivia Night is a fundraiser held every other year at school when we do not have a Cornucopia auction. This event provides a fun and relaxed atmosphere to build relationships and further support school operations.
