Celebrations and Activity Kits
As the name suggests, celebrations are typically gatherings that are fun and foster community. Celebrations vary from year-to-year, and have included crab feasts in the CHS parking lot, ice skating parties, cookie decorating gatherings, movie night in the CHS community room, Smithsonian scavenger hunts, and many more. We usually offer the celebrations at our fall auction, but this year we are going to do it a little differently and invite families to participate throughout the year, and in advance of our auction, which we hope to hold in some form in the spring.
Introducing CHS's Pumpkinpalooza, fun for the whole family. Time for Jack-o-lanterns! Pumpkins, carving tools and festive goodies will be delivered to your house (or available for contactless pickup at carpool, if you prefer). A special Pumpkin Carving Zoom with Mr. Mease will take place on Saturday, October 24th at 4:30 PM.

Working from home? Flexible hours? Then come join current CHS dads, Sean Shannon, Adam Spiegel, David Don, and special guest, alumnus dad, Pete Gronvall, on an afternoon of golfing at Bethesda Country Club. Maryland golf courses have been open since May, and golf is the quintessential socially distanced activity. Every detail of the afternoon has been taken care of – our groups will tee off between 11:30 AM and 12 PM, and as the 19th hole is temporarily unavailable, the Club will deliver food and beverages to us throughout the round. Golf clubs, suitable golf course attire, and masks are required - as is constant adherence to Maryland’s COVID-19 guidance. This celebration is scheduled for Thursday 10/22/20 and is weather dependent. We will make a determination that week about rescheduling if need be.
Cost: $125 per golfer

Concord Hill Celebrations have always been designed to bring families together to have fun while supporting CHS. For now, at least we can’t celebrate together in person, but we can still support our school, have fun and have shared experiences - together, apart - through our planned Activity Kits.
Be on the lookout for several kits throughout the year. Each will be curated by parents and designed to maximize fun for the whole family. Because they will be hand-selected and packed by the generous parent donors, each one will have a limited supply. So watch for announcements of different boxes and act fast. They also make great gifts!
As the leaves change color and the air turns colder, cozy up to the campfire, fireplace or microwave with your CHS limited edition S'mores Kit. It is the perfect celebration for the young and the young at heart, complete with a book to read aloud as you enjoy your gooey treats.
