The Project Graduation Committee

FEBRUARY 11, 2016 BUENO LOCO Restaurant on Route 1 has been very generous and has offered to help support the FHS 2016 Project Grad. by donating 10% of their proceeds towards our Project Grad. Please join us between the hours of 5PM-CLOSE to help support the FHS 2016 Project Grad. We hope to see you there! June 5, 2016 @ 6pm FHS Graduation, at Merrill Auditorium – To stay informed on upcoming senior events please refer to the senior class page at: https://tackk.com/falmouth2016

The 2016 Project Graduation Committee has been busy this year - planning, organizing and negotiating great deals for the Project Grad. Celebration.  We still have much to do to prepare for the actual events.  We still need and would welcome help from all of you: Project Grad. is held on the night of Graduation June 5 to June 6th.

Attention Parents/Guardians of Graduating Seniors:

Happy 2016 -- the year your student will graduate from high school! Every spring the Project Graduation Decorating Committee installs a display of our graduates, and we will be creating a unique poster for each member of the FHS class of 2016. These posters will be displayed in the hallways the last few weeks of school, and after the candlelight ceremony will be a keepsake for you to take home. We are asking that you send two DIGITAL photographs of your senior: one as a baby or young child, and one senior portrait. These photographs can be color or black and white (posters will be printed in color), and should be at least 300 dpi resolution. If you do not have digital photos or access to scanning equipment, you can take a photo of the photograph using a smartphone. The final output of the photos will be approximately 4" x 6" (landscape orientation).  Please send your photos as a .jpg, .png or .pdf image, labeled with your senior's first and last name. You should indicate how you want your student's name to appear on the poster (i.e. Abby rather than Abigail, etc). Otherwise the default will be the student's full registered name.Email to: fhspg2016@gmail.com. All photographs must be received by March 31st. Thank you! The 2016 Project Graduation Committee
