PROJECT GRADUATION 2022

Dear Warrior Senior Parents,

This year's Project Graduation Committee is excited to provide our Class of 2022 Warriors with the special year they deserve. 

We wanted to answer a few questions for you. It's a lot to take in, so please read carefully and reach out with any questions. 

We are counting on your support!

 

WHAT IS PROJECT GRADUATION?

Project Graduation is a tradition at many high schools to keep graduates safe and substance-free on graduation night.  For WHRHS, the event will be six hours long, filled with all kinds of indoor activities, entertainment and -- of course -- lots of food and drinks!  All students are required to ride the bus to and from the event, which will be held on graduation night, 6/16/2022, at Iron Peak in Hillsborough, NJ.

 

WHO RUNS PROJECT GRADUATION? 

Project Graduation is an independent parent organization with their own budget, fundraising events and planning committee.  Senior parent volunteers work hard to host various exciting events that lead up to the end-of-year graduation night event.

Our co-chairs this year are Cristina Nunes of Warren and Laurie McLeod of Long Hill.

 

WHAT ARE THE OTHER EVENTS THROUGH THE YEAR?

The fun starts with the PG committee purchasing Class of 2022 T-shirts for Panoramic Senior Picture Day. It continues throughout the year with several Spirit Days and culminates during Senior Week with a special Senior Breakfast and the ever-popular Yearbook Signing and Ice Cream Social events. 
 

WHO ATTENDS PROJECT GRADUATION NIGHT?

WHRHS has approximately 525 seniors from the towns of Green Brook, Long Hill, Warren and Watchung who will be graduating on June 16, 2022. The event is open at no cost to the entire WHRHS graduating class, and we hope for 100% participation.

 

WHO PAYS FOR THE EVENTS?

Project Graduation is funded completely through donations.

The ability to provide all the events throughout the year is only possible through generous donations from our families & community. This includes the parents, local businesses and community organizations. As we are a regional high school, we are reaching out to the member towns, seeking donations to help offset the costs of this celebration. In the past, we have received pledges as well as goods and services, from many different community members. If you have a business or skill you can offer or know someone willing to help, please let us know!

 

IS IT TOO LATE TO JOIN THE PG COMMITTEE?

It's not too late to help out and support our Senior Class of 2022. Please email PROJECTGRADWHRHS@GMAIL.COM if you are interested in helping.

Be on the lookout for emails requesting help and posts on our Facebook page.

 

On behalf of the volunteer committee and students who will benefit from your generosity, we thank you for your support.


Your Project Graduation Executive Board,

Laurie McLeod, Cristina Nunes, Sushama Sekar
