FUNDRAISING EVENTS


 


Project Graduation is organized by the Senior parents and supported throughout the community. To put on such an event for 550+ teenagers, that is enticing enough to get them there and fun enough to keep them there requires a lot of planning, volunteers, and money.
Here's how you can help:

WHO? All 2016 Graduating Seniors are invited! Free of charge!

WHAT? Project Graduation is an all-night, lock-in party for all graduating Seniors, organized by the Senior parents and supported throughout the community!

WHEN? The Night of Graduation (June 3rd) from 10:00pm to 5:00am

WHERE? Westwood High School

WHY? This party is a place for our Seniors to all be together one last time. It is lots of fun with lots of cool prizes. Most importantly, the entire party is free from alcohol and other drugs plus well chaperoned.

Parents,

Your students may come home questioning about a wrecked car outside by the field house. Our dedicated SRO Officers have helped Project Graduation obtain a wrecked car as a reminder to our community and our students not to drink and drive.  

Project Graduation is a yearly celebration of the special achievement each senior accomplishes by graduating from high school. Not only is our purpose to celebrate, but we wish to keep our graduates safe in an alcohol and drug free environment while celebrating. 
This year Project Graduation wishes to remind every Westwood student of the dangers of drinking and driving. 
According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving  TEEN ALCOHOL USE KILLS 4,700 PEOPLE EACH YEAR - THAT’S MORE THAN ALL ILLEGAL DRUGS COMBINED.
Young drivers (ages 16-20) are 17 times more likely to die in a crash when they have a blood alcohol concentration of .08% than when they have not been drinking.
We have placed a crashed car by the field house to remind each of you about the importance of not drinking and driving. Also, always be aware of the drivers around you. You may not be drinking, but they may have. Always have an extra plan to get home if you  suspect your ride has been drinking. Be safe always!

Help us reach our goal of $70,000 
so every Westwood graduate can attend a once in a lifetime event !

We are at $55,000!  More than half way to our goal!

Parents,
As you know, Project Graduation is an all night celebration free from alcohol and drugs. As your child prepares to leave home and begin the next step to adulthood, it is helpful to have conversations with them about alcohol use.
Project Graduation invites you to view this link:  http://www.samhsa.gov/underage-drinking/parent-resources
I hope that it will provide you with a starting point in the very important topic of underage drinking with your child or help you in your continued conversation. 
Sincerely,
