Project Graduation 2016
Project Graduation is a nationwide program established to provide a safe, alcohol-free and drug-free environment for students to celebrate their graduation together. This event has been organized and hosted by the Ramapo High School Class Parents for over 35 years. Virtually all of the graduates attend this special evening and we are hoping for 100% participation in June 2016. Since the inception of Project Graduation, their have been no post-graduation fatalities within our community.
Immediately following the graduation reception on Wednesday, June 22, 2016, buses will be provided to transport students and chaperones to a night filled with fun, food, music, activity and entertainment. Security will be on hand all night. At the conclusion of the event, the students will board the buses and arrive back at the high school at approximately 3:30 AM on the morning of June 23, 2016. Students are not allowed to drive home and must be picked up by a parent or responsible adult.
The total cost per student of Project Graduation is considerably more than the parent contribution listed below. We will, however, be raising funds through grants, solicitations from the business community, as well as the major fundraiser, in October 2015 Military Bridge that goes to cover the additional costs of the program.
The parent contribution per student for Project Graduation will be $175.00 (non refundable).
Please note that no graduate will be excluded from the festivities due to economic circumstances.
To help defray expenses we began our fundraising in our freshman year, fundraising efforts have included;
Freshman - SpiritWear Sale, David’s Cookies
Sophomore - Spirit Wear Sale, David's Cookies, Ramapo Fleece Blankets, Plant Sale
Junior - Spirit Wear Sale, Joel's Cookies, Ramapo Fleece Blanket, Night at the Races, Prom Flowers
Senior - Military Bridge, Driver Safe, 50/50 Holiday Raffle, Lawn Signs, Prom Flowers
