WHERE: Sebastopol Community Cultural Center
The 25th Annual PROJECT GRADUATION Celebration for ALL 2014 graduating SENIORS is a fabulous send-off party proudly planned and sponsored by Analy parents and the local community. This alcohol and drug-free celebration lasts from 9:30 p.m. the night of graduation until 5 a.m the next morning. Every year some 80% of the graduating class attends this ALL-NIGHT party that serves the dual purpose of keeping our students safe and off the streets after graduation and honoring their graduation with a fabulous night of activities, food, entertainment and many special memories.
Since Project Graduation was instituted some 24 years ago, not a single Analy graduate has died from alcohol, drugs or traffic accidents on graduation night. You can help keep our kids safe by volunteering for this great event, and, most importantly, making sure your graduating senior attends. Project Grad has strong grassroots support through people like you, and a recent Press Democrat article tells more about the Project Grad tradition that takes place in 15 Sonoma County Schools across the country.
The planning of this event starts well before students enter their SENIOR year at Analy. Traditionally, parents of freshman, sophomores and juniors pay it forward—serving on the planning committee and staffing the event for the graduates—which allows parents of seniors to enjoy their student’s graduation and spend time with family on graduation night.
Over 100 adult volunteers work hands-on before, during and after the event, and all Analy parents are welcome to participate, especially those who do not have a graduating senior. What skills are needed? Enthusiasm and commitment. There’s a place for everyone. Just ask anyone who has been involved—it’s fun !
The Project Grad Committee meets monthly (6 p.m., 3rd Tuesday of the month in the Community Room at Two-Acre Wood, 680 Robinson Road, Sebastopol).
