EVENTS

Balloon Aloft

Friday, October 1, 2021 - Before School

NMIS Parking Lot

Many pilots who are registered for the Balloon Fiesta sign up to participate in Albuquerque Aloft. Pilots tether or launch their balloons from selected school grounds (NMIS is hoping to be selected). In the past, parents and students have been invited to be on hand for the event, and we usually offer refreshments for sale, adding to the fun. We are looking for a volunteer to help coordinate the logistics of the event.  We also need volunteers to help with setup, cleanup, and the activities planned.

Trunk or Treat

Saturday, October 23, 2021

NMIS Campus

By utilizing our spacious campus we’ve found a fun, safe way for our community to celebrate Halloween. Community volunteers sign-up to host a trunk, decorate their vehicle in an approved theme and greet NMIS community members with donated treats. Many generous community members donate candy, small toys, and other treats for the event. In an attempt to raise funds there are also various stations to participate in games and crafts, concessions are available for purchase and raffle items are available. This is a big event which requires lots of volunteers!

School Supply Fundraiser

May 28, 2021 to July 16, 2021

Free Shipping Ends June 18, 2021

Online

Enjoy the crazy, easy convenience of ordering school supplies through NMISF - your one stop shop! A portion of the proceeds will go to NMISF for supporting the School. This program is a fundraiser to support NMIS and is optional; however, if you choose to not purchase through NMISF then you will still need to purchase school supplies on your own for your student(s).  We need volunteers to help distribute the boxes to classrooms once they are shipped to the school. The exact date is TBD but is likely the first week of August.
