The end of the school year is fast approaching, we are in dire need of YOU to help us host the Senior Bon Voyage All Night Party.

Because of the lapse in years without a party, many underclassman parents don’t know what the party is or how to organize it. We are concerned that in the coming years the party may be in jeopardy as there will be very few people who know how to continue the party as it is today. Past seniors have repeatedly walked away from this party saying it was one of the most fun nights of their lives. Please help us keep this tradition alive by volunteering at this year's Senior All Night party. You will have the opportunity to see what it’s all about, and we can certainly use your help.

If you would like to volunteer your time, please refer to the Sign-Up Genius link to sign up.

(In my opinion, two of the most fun jobs are still available: decorations and casino worker.)

If you would like to volunteer your resources, please refer to our Amazon wish list to purchase donations.
