What is Project
Project Graduation is an all-night, alcohol and drug free
celebration for the graduating class.
Why is it so important?
Graduates often 'party hop' in their efforts to celebrate
with as many of their classmates as possible. Project Graduation provides a safe
alternative to party hopping: it keeps all of the graduates
off of the roads, prevents any of them from
becoming an accident static and allows their
parents to rest easy knowing their son/daughter is safely celebrating.
When and Where is it
The celebration begins at 10pm on
the night of graduation, with check-in at the high school. Williamstown High School will be holding their Project
Graduation celebration at the Rowan University Recreation
Center and will follow the nights activities up with a breakfast back at the high school. Parents are asked to pick their
graduates up at approximately 6am, in the high school cafeteria.
Are all members of the
graduating class eligible to attend?
must qualify to 'walk' in the graduation ceremony.
Why do graduates choose to
attend Project Graduation?
There are numerous
reasons why this celebration is so popular:
Every attending graduate receives a door prize worth a minimum value of $25
Every attending graduate has a chance to win a a large cash prize, in addition to many other
Project Graduation provides non-stop food (including breakfast)
Music and a DJ, an Olympic-size indoor pool, contests, and many other fun
activities are all open to those attending
Every attending graduate receives a 'Project Graduation' drawstring backpack, and a copy of a group
photo taken at Rowan
A special finale is planned every year at Rowan
This is the last time all of the graduates will spend together
How does my senior sign up to
along with their parents, will receive an invitation to a special
meeting. At this time reservations, along
with a $10 reservation fee will be collected, along
with signed permission forms. Both parents and prospective graduates will be
told all of the details of the celebration at this meeting.
As the parent of one of this
year's graduates, how will this affect my family celebration?
you are planning a family graduation party, it would be best to pick a day
either a few days before or after graduation. There WILL be time between the
ceremony and check-in at the high school for you and your family to take your
graduate to dinner. (We suggest reservations for that evening.) Attendees do not
have to be back at the high school until 10pm. Please keep in mind that your
child will have been awake over 24 hours when you come to pick them up- our
experience has proven that they are usually NOT ready for another graduation
celebration on the day after graduation.
