Crosby High sets sites on first Project Graduation

CROSBY—The graduating class of Crosby High School has decided to celebrate their graduation on May 27, 2004 with an all night; chemical-free graduation party to assure that none of the class of 2004 will be injured or killed in alcohol-related accidents. The party will be a well chaperoned.

“Nationally, more young people between the ages of 16 and 20 are injured or killed between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m. in May and June than during any other time of the year,” said Richard Dreyton, principal of Forest Hills. “We want to make sure that all of our seniors have a chance to attend their 10 year reunion.” The death rate is higher today than it was 20 years ago because of drunk driving crashes. But, with Project Graduation, we’re fighting back.

This will be Crosby High School first “Project Graduation,” the name used across the country for chemical-free graduation parties. It will be held at the high school, which will be open to seniors only for that night. A variety of activities has been planned for the night, including a casino night, karaoke, magic shows, fortune teller, volleyball tournament, photographer, food and lots of entertainment. At this time we are working on a car as a give away at the end of project graduation in which you have to attend to be able to win the car.

To make Project Graduation the biggest and best party ever, we ill need your help. We are in need of parents to help chair numerous committees.

It also takes junior parents as well so that we can walk them through it this year for their coming year. This will be the first year and hopefully more to come so therefore we are reaching out to our community for your support. Donations of money, services, or merchandise for prizes are now being accepted.

There will be a garage sale this fall and in the spring so don’t get rid of them please hang on to them or call me and we can make some arrangements to get them picked up.
