Community Events

The Glenview New Church School is proud of our Community Events we offer to the greater Glenview Community.  Our events attract over a thousand people a year to take part in our family-oriented, safe, wholesome events.  Please see the details below for information about our individual community events.

Enchanted Forest – October 28th, 2017

The Glenview New Church School presents the Enchanted Forest. This is a Halloween event designed to encourage the celebration of the imagination and of Halloween without the imagery of fear and grotesque symbolism that can sometimes thread through the holiday. We are setting up a series of connected play rooms, with each playroom featuring a different theme surrounding fairy tales or children’s stories (like Sleeping Beauty, the Jungle Book, or Bob the Builder.) Each room will have toys and games to play with following that room’s theme. Belle from Beauty and the Beast and Ariel from the Little Mermaid will also be there, performing some of their favorite songs as well as playing with kids in each of the rooms.

Winter Wonderland – January 27th, 2018

The Glenview New Church School is putting on fantastical winter wonderland event for young children on Saturday February 11th from 9:30 am – 11:30 am.  This will be an event with building blocks, sensory tables, bouncy castle, car tracks, and singing performances by two princesses from beloved fairy tales.  Please invite your friends and family with young children.  This is a free event if you get your tickets in advance, or $3 per person at the door the day of the event. https://gncswinterwonderland.eventbrite.com
We are also looking for volunteers to help out with the event on February 11th from 9 am – 12 pm, playing with children in the different activity centers, helping with face painting or taking tickets at the door.  If you would like to help, please contact Kendra Paraskevopoulos at Kendrap@glenviewnewchurch.org .

Easter Egg Hunt – March 31st, 2018

The Glenview New Church School’s annual Easter Egg Hunt is back on April 15th, 2017  Over 8,000 eggs are hidden on 15 acres of the school’s land (the inside circle of Park Dr.).  The hunt begins strictly at 10:00 am, and doors open at 9:30 am.  Please arrive early to get checked in and pick up your easter egg hunting bag.

Grand Prize Golden eggs are hidden along with the rest of the eggs that can be turned in for prizes.

A raffle well be held. A magician will give a show!  Snacks will be included!

There is also an optional fenced in easter egg hunt available for ages 1 – 4.  These 4 year old and under, egghunters-in-training pick up as many eggs as they want and turn their eggs in for a singular prize.  This is an option for this age group and not required.
