MISD Parent Groups
Dear MISD Parent Groups,
McKinney’s Project Graduation is a non-profit group lead by volunteers whose only goal is to provide all McKinney graduating seniors a safe, alcohol- and drug-free event to celebrate graduation night. This will be our 13th year to help keep our young people and community safe.
We are asking for a representative from each MISD parent group to join us at MHS on Thursday, January 7, at 6:30pm for a Project Graduation presentation explaining what we do and how you can become part of this life-saving annual event.
We hope to see you there and thank you for all that you do for our students.
