The Parent Grad Committee is working hard to fundraise for the memorable prom event for our graduates.

If your family, your friends or your employer's business could kindly provide merchandise, gift baskets, monetary donations, or service/discount certificates - this would be an amazing help!

The business' sponsorship would be recognized on a large sign at the prom event, through social media, and in the school newsletter. Please let us know ASAP if you or someone you know can participate in fundraising efforts. Any donation, great or small, is very much appreciated!
