Dear Olathe North Senior Parents,
National statistics show that more young people between the ages of 16 and 20 are injured or killed between the hours of 10p.m. and 4a.m. during graduation season(May/June)/night of graduation than during any other time of the year. PROJECT GRADUATION is one way to fight these alarming facts and teach our kids to celebrate smart! Project Graduation provides our graduating seniors with a safe and fun environment that is drug and alcohol-free to celebrate their accomplishments. With these things in mind we are looking to our school community to once again come together and support this great tradition.
ON Project Graduation is a mostly senior parent volunteer group that will organize an all-night drug and alcohol-free event on Sunday May 20th, 2018. Your support will help ensure our graduating seniors have a place to safely celebrate all their hard work over their last 12 years of school.
We will be holding fundraising events throughout the year to raise money to cover the costs of hosting this event for our Seniors. Please support these efforts by getting involved or encouraging your student to help at fundraising events. Upcoming events include:
Our fundraising goal is $8,000. With this amount, we anticipate being able to “offset” the cost of attendance in the form of gift cards and other prizes to be distributed at the event.
If you are interested in being on the steering committee for 2018 ON Project Graduation please contact Scott Mayes at 913 219 4038 or email@example.com.
On behalf of the graduating class of 2018 THANK YOU, in advance, for your consideration and support of this truly special program for our graduating seniors. We look forward to a fun year and great end of the year party.
