Volunteer and Fundraising Opportunities

Click the link to view a summary of the 2017-18 Annual Fundraising Schedule, including these opportunities available throughout the school year:

  • Shop Amazon.com through the Smile program – set your charity to New Morning Nursery Inc, and a portion of your purchase goes right to our school.
  • Shop for custom labels for all your kids’ items through Mabel’s Labels – set your school/organization to New Morning Nursery School [check that you select the Madison New Morning!]. Families have really liked the products from Mabel’s Labels, and the reliable name information inside sweatshirts, coats, hats, etc., helps out our teachers as well!
  • Support our wonderful school photographer/NMNS parent Jen Lucas.
  • And, watch for car magnet and tote bag sales at our events!
