Graduation Ceremonies for the
Class of 2013 will be held on Friday, June 7, 2013. Later that evening the seniors will celebrate Project
Graduation 2013, continuing a
tradition that began twenty-three years ago with the Class of 1990. Project Graduation takes place in the school and is a supervised,
substance-free party for graduating seniors. Students arrive before 11:30PM on Friday night and may not
leave before 5:00AM on Saturday morning.
The event provides graduating seniors with the opportunity to be together
one last time with classmates, faculty and friends in a safe and entertaining
Throughout the night there
will be food/beverages, live entertainment, group activities and plenty of
fun. Parents, in conjunction with
the senior class and school administration, organize Project Graduation. The
primary vehicle to raise money for the event is a raffle with cash prizes to
cover the cost of the event. Without
your support activities and entertainment for the evening will need to be
scaled back or cancelled.
You will receive in the mail two $25 raffle
tickets to support Project Graduation 2013 and we are asking each family to purchase one raffle
ticket and sell the other to a relative, friend, or co-worker. Your child(ren) and their friends
could take a chance as well. All
proceeds from the raffle go directly to cover the costs of the event. Checks should be made payable to Albertus
Magnus Project Graduation and should be returned to the main office
as soon as possible. Parent
support of Project Graduation is
critical to our success. Please
support this worthwhile event!
We are also in need of
chaperones for two-hour shifts during the night to supervise activities. Traditionally, the Junior Class
(Class of 2014) parents act as chaperones; however, we encourage all parents of
underclassmen to become involved.
If you can volunteer your time, please contact me @ (845)786-0093. By becoming an active participant in
support of Project Graduation you
will ensure that this important tradition will continue for many years to come.
Thank you for your support.
