On Thursday we had a grad parent meeting after parent teacher interviews. We apologize for dropping the ball on advertising this one, but due to everything that happened in the last couple weeks we were just trying to get through each day.
During this meeting we decided to do a dinner during the drama production on Thursday December 12th. We will be asking parents to help the grads prepare a lasagna dinner (lasagna, caesar salad, and garlic bread), serve the dinner, and clean up afterwards as well as selling tickets to this event. Tickets will be $20 with the majority of the proceeds going to GRAD and the remainder going to Drama. This is an excellent opportunity for both parties to increase sales of tickets. We have also provided students with a letter to hand out to local companies about donating items for a silent auction/raffle this evening. This fundraiser alone has the potential of bringing in ~$2500 if we can get dinner tickets sold and have substantial silent auction/raffle items.
We will be holding another grad meeting in the last week of January, date TBA to discuss box social and decorations for grad.
We are also asking parents to send us any floral arrangements in the colours of purples, blues and whites (spring ish) to us so we can get them priced out and have the students vote on them. They are having a hard time finding a direction to take with their flowers.
