Dear Class of 2017 Parents and Caregivers, It is hard to believe, but in just a few months, our sons and daughters will be donning caps and gowns and taking their first steps into the world of adulthood. By the time June 22 arrives, they will truly deserve – and be more than ready - to celebrate. Montclair High School has sponsored a successful post graduation party for the graduating class for the past 28 years. Project Graduation is a supervised, drug and alcohol free, all-night party. It starts with a bus ride that winds its way through our streets and ends at a surprise venue, where food and entertainment are provided right through the wee hours, ending with breakfast at 4 or 5 am. Last year more than 400 of the MHS graduating class attended. Project Graduation is accessible to all eligible graduating seniors and there’s a nominal charge of $10/per person. We’re planning several fund-raising appeals and events to cover the costs of the venue, entertainment, food, transportation and security. Like those who have led Project Graduation before, your 2017 committee is doing all we can to keep down the cost of this milestone event. To throw the year’s most anticipated event, we need to raise over $60,000! Over the course of the year you will be receiving emails and fliers about all the exciting events and fundraisers we’ll be hosting including: · Annual Holiday Bazaar · Class of 2017 Spirit Wear · Adults-Only Dance Party for Parents/Grandparents/Friends of the Class of 2017 · Super Bowl Raffle . Used Book Sale · Spring Cocktail and Dinner Parties · The Bulldog Brigade · Blue-and-White Ribbons/Bows Sales and Lawn Sign Sales A fundraising event of this proportion takes many hands – and much goodwill. We welcome any and all volunteers – no help is ever turned away. There will be booths to be manned, tickets to sell, backpacks to check, buses to decorate, dance halls to decorate, auction baskets to donate and assemble and so much more. Please get involved by offering to help in a way that works best for your demanding schedule. To get involved or to ask a question, please email us at: mhspg17@gmail.com and stay up to date by joining our Facebook Page: Montclair Project Graduation 2017 On behalf of the Class of 2017, thank you so much in advance for your support and congratulations to you – your child’s success is a reflection of your love and devotion!
