Project Grad

Project Grad would like to invite all parents 9th-12th grade to get involved and attend our meeting on Sept. 29 at 6pm at GEHS Lecture Hall. Any senior who would like to get involved or like to get service hours is welcome to participate.


Don't have a senior this year, no worries. We ask parents of all grade levels to volunteer. It helps relieve the stress of senior parents so they can focus on their senior the day of graduation and helps to pass on a strong knowledgeable committee each year.

Project Graduation is a national movement by students, parents, and school administrators to provide a safe alternative party for graduation.
