PROJECT GRADUATION 2013
|SBHS Project Graduation 2013
*****IMPORTANT PROJECT GRADUATION UPDATE*****
We are happy to advise that Project Graduation has received an overwhelming response. To date 425 of the 685 students in the Class of 2013 will be attending this event. The deadline has been extended to Friday, May 3rd to reserve your senior’s seat on the bus and participation in this exciting celebration event. Thank you to all who have volunteered to be chaperones or bus check in assistance. You will be contacted shortly with regard to this.
Project Graduation is an event that is held nationwide following high school graduation to provide graduating seniors an opportunity to celebrate their graduation with their peers in a safe, supervised, tobacco, substance and alcohol-free atmosphere. It began 32 years ago in Oxford Hills, Maine in response to 7 alcohol and other drug related deaths of teens in the graduation season of 1979. The event is organized and funded through the efforts of parents and is fully endorsed by the South Brunswick Board of Education. Project Graduation receives funding from the South Brunswick Municipal Alliance Against Substance Abuse and the Governor's Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse (GCADA).
To date PG has raised approximately $12,500 of the approximately $40,000 needed to support a FREE Graduation night event for the Class of 2013. Your support of our events and donations will help to make this celebration a safe, alcohol, tobacco and drug free event for the graduating class. This committee has worked tirelessly for months which made this a very difficult decision for the PTO Executive Board to make. The inability to raise funds through various channels and the current economic climate have made it necessary to regretfully inform the families of our seniors that there will be a $35 fee per student to attend Project Graduation this year. Please see attached letter to parents for more information. Click here for a copy of the Permission Slip.
Please be sure to complete the Permission Slip and send it along with a check or money order in the amount of $35 made payable to SBHS Project Graduation by April 25, 2013 to reserve your senior’s seat on the bus. Please note that if we do not have confirmation and payment for at least 250 students by April 25, the event will unfortunately be cancelled.
The KickOff Meeting on September 13 will be held in the Faculty Dining Room at 7 PM. Meetings are held in the Library starting at 7:15pm after a brief update with the PTO.

FUNDRAISING EFFORTS UPDATE –
As of March 31, 2013, the Committee has only been able to raise approximately one third of the necessary funds that would allow Project Graduation to remain free of charge. The inability to raise funds through various channels and the current economic climate have made it necessary to regretfully inform the families of our seniors that there will be a $35 fee per student to attend Project Graduation this year. Please see attached letter to parents for more information.
