Calling all incoming Freshman, current Freshman, Sophomore, and current Junior parents.
Project Graduation is the largest event that the PTSO sponsors and coordinates. This event is a safe, drug-free and alcohol-free graduation after-party for our seniors. The event will be held at Germantown Baptist Church from 10:30 PM to 2:00 AM following Houston High School's graduation ceremonies.
This event keeps getting bigger and better each year and the need for more volunteers is critical. We are appealing to all NON-SENIOR parents to get involved so that they can continue the tradition when their student graduates.
This year we need approximately 70 additional volunteers (both moms and dads) to assist The Board of Directors. There are some jobs that will require you to stay for the entire event. Others will allow you to come early and leave early. And there are others that will allow you to come later and leave after the event.
There will be an information meeting on 05/14/2018 in the HHS Auditorium at 6:30 PM.This will be a brief meeting where you will be given information regarding the flow of the Event and receive instructions for your specific areas.
Help us make this an INCREDIBLE event for our Seniors (and for our future Seniors)
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me via the PTSO email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
