Since our inception, the Friends of Nantucket Public Schools has awarded over two million dollars to students and staff within the Nantucket Public Schools. We cannot think of a better way to spend your hard earned money. Please consider attending one of our events or becoming involved yourself.
Community Spelling Bee - (February)
The 17th Annual Community Spelling Bee will take place on Saturday, February 2. Dinner at 5:30, Bee starts at 6:30
What kind of supporters of education would the Friends be without the Spelling Bee?? The Annual Community Spelling Bee is a wonderful opportunity for the community to get together to benefit the programs of the Friends of Nantucket Public Schools. Teams of three compete for the ultimate speller award and range from students and teachers to businesses and non-for-profits - and everyone gets into the act!
Before the show, dinner will be available for guests beginning at 5:30pm in the high school cafeteria. Tableside service by students and volunteers is a great start to this fun event. More information on dinner menu coming soon.
