Attention parents of Seniors, tomorrow night Wednesday November 28, Project Grad will be meeting in the McKay Library. We will be talking about the upcoming Senior All Night Party. There is 190 days left until graduation, and project grad still needs help fundraising in order to make this years party successful. Please come with your ideas, and with your schedule, so we can get some parents signed up to help with our fundraising efforts. We currently are collecting cans and bottles in order to take advantage of a match program at BottleDrop, now until December 9th. During this time frame only, we have the opportunity to receive a match anywhere from 10-40% extra on bottle deposits. Its a great way to give to our seniors, so please consider donating your cans and bottles.
