Project Grad provides WHS graduates with an opportunity to celebrate with their classmates in a safe, alcohol and substance free, environment. This year’s graduating class will enjoy this event on June 17, 2017 (the night of graduation).
Project Graduation was conceived in Maine over 30 years ago after 18 teens lost their lives in drug and alcohol related crashes following high school graduations. The event was so well received that it was quickly adopted by other high schools throughout the nation – including Texas.
For 20 years, WHS Project Grad has been an annual event for eligible graduating students. It is an adult supervised event and it is FREE to all graduating seniors. It is the last social event where the seniors can have a great and safe night ~ filled with music, food, games, entertainment, prizes and of course… FUN – TOGETHER!
Here’s a really important note – though Project Grad is endorsed by the City of Winooski and the Winooski School District, this event is NOT organized by WHS staff. It takes the collective efforts of dedicated parents and volunteers to pull off an event of this size. In other words? WE NEED YOU!! Financial donations are greatly appreciated ~ checks can be made to WHS Project Grad and dropped off or mailed to WHS Project Grad, 80 Normand Street, Winooski, VT 05404. There will also be numerous opportunities to contribute throughout the year, and there is plenty of work to go around!
