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 Kingdom – October 28th, 2017

The Glenview New Church School presents the Enchanted Kingdom! This is a Halloween event designed to encourage the celebration of the imagination and the season without the imagery of fear and scary symbolism that can sometimes thread through the holiday. Kids will enjoy a series of connected play rooms with themes like Tracks & Trucks, Princesses, The Jungle Book, Jack & the Beanstalk, and the Creativity Corner! Each room will have toys and activities following that room’s theme. The event will include entertainment by a real, live Disney Princess (Moana this year) and a popular cartoon character (Marshall from Paw Patrol)! All are welcome and kids are invited to come in their halloween costume.

Location: Pendleton Hall
Date: October 28th
Time: 9:30 – 11:30
Ages: Event is geared towards ages 2 – 6
Cost: $5/child

Tickets can be purchased at the door or bought in advance here: https://gncsenchantedkingdom.eventbrite.com/
