Project Graduation 2016-17

Project Graduation is a committee of parents/adults, along with the Senior Class Advisor, who work together to provide graduating seniors a FREE, substance-free, all-night celebration on graduation night. The goal of Project Graduation is to keep our children safe on one of the most memorable days of their lives.

Project Graduation Needs You!

We need your help! The committee works all year to raise funds to host this party.  It takes a large group of people to make it possible.  Join us at the meetings and/or help with our events. Your support in any way is greatly appreciated!

We welcome parents/guardians of ALL classes to join as this is not only for the graduating senior class ... funds are also raised for future graduating classes of MHS.

We can't do it without you!

If you can't help but would like to donate, that's great too!

Flamingo Flocking is a year-round fundraiser. With a $25 donation, A FLOCK OF PLASTIC FLAMINGOS will mysteriously  appear on the lawn of your friend, family, or neighbor!  (Middletown area only). Project Graduation volunteers will install a flock under cover of darkness, leaving them to brighten your "victim's" day and bring smiles to the faces of passers-by. For an additional $5, we'll include a short, personalized message attached to one of the flamingos! Great for birthdays, graduation, anniversaries, sporting events, new baby, and any special occasion!
Anti-Flocking Insurance is also available for a premium of only $10. This guarantees that a flock will not roost on your lawn as they migrate through the city. Please e-mail either request to MHSflamingos@gmail.com  Project Grad will make every effort to accomodate date requests, however, flockings are done on a first-come, first-served basis once payment is received.

Supermarket Fundraisers - Stop & Shop and Price Chopper supermarkets give rewards to school groups through your store loyalty cards if they are registered for the programs. MHS Project Graduation will be the recipient of rewards based on dollar amounts purchased by cardholders when you shop - at NO COST to you and without affecting your rewards programs whatsoever! It only takes a minute to sign up your cards for the school programs on the store sites.

Graduation Lawn Signs - Corrugated plastic congratulation signs with wire stands, personalized with your student's name, to "plant" on your lawn to show your pride! Check back late Winter/Spring for posting of flyer here.

Restaurant Fundraisers - Will be set up with various area restaurant for Project Grad to receive donations based on sales on a particular day. Sign up for our mailing list below by clicking on the Google Groups icon to receive messages about dates and instructions for participating.
