Project Graduation

Project Graduation is a nationwide program established to provide a safe, alcohol-free and drug-free environment for students to celebrate their graduation together. This event has been organized and hosted by the Indian Hills High School Class Parents for over 35 years. Virtually all of the graduates attend this special evening and we are hoping for a near 100% participation in June 2019.  Since the inception of Project Graduation, there have been no post-graduation fatalities within our community.

Immediately following the graduation reception on Monday, June 24, 2019, buses will be provided to transport students and chaperones to a night filled with fun, food, music, activity and entertainment. Security will be on hand all night. The students will board the bus and arrive back at the high school on the morning of June 25, 2018 at approximately 4:00 AM.

The total cost per student of Project Graduation and other senior activities is considerably more than the parent contribution listed below. We will, however, be raising funds through grants, solicitations from the business community, as well as the major fundraiser, the Senior Fashion Show, that will cover the additional costs of the program. The Senior Fashion Show committee will need a great number of volunteers to ensure a successfully evening, so please sign up to assist.  The Fashion Show date is Thursday, March 21.  Please plan to attend.

The parent contribution per student for Project Graduation 2019 will be $200. You may pay the lump sum or 4 installments.  All payments are due by February 1st, 2019. If you have already submitted your payment, there is no need to do anything else; but if your child is not planning to attend, please let us know.

Please make your check payable to “IHHS PTSO PG19" and your child’s name written in the memo line and return it with the completed to IHHS PTSO - PG19, 97 Yawpo Avenue Oakland, NJ 07436 or to Amy Soto, 225 Terrace Road, Franklin Lakes, NJ 07417.  A flier has been sent out that should accompany your payment.  You will be able to sign up to chaperone on this form.

Please note that no graduate will be excluded from the festivities due to economic circumstances.
