What is Project Graduation? Project Graduation is an event that is held nationwide following high school graduation to provide graduating seniors an opportunity to celebrate their graduation with their peers in a safe, supervised, tobacco, substance and alcohol-free atmosphere. It began in Maine in response to 7 alcohol and drug related deaths of teens after graduation in 1979. The event is organized and funded through the efforts of volunteer parents and local community businesses.How much does it cost to attend?
It is free to all MHS Seniors, but it takes a great deal of fundraising to keep this event going each year. Your help is needed. All parents are invited to get involved – not just senior parents, but junior parents too. The current cost to fund the event is around $50,000! The success of this event is contingent upon the efforts of volunteers, parents and local community organizations supporting MHSPG major fundraising events and activities throughout the year. In the event we do not raise enough funds, there may be a charge for the event.
