DEAR JUNIOR PARENTS:

At this time next year you will be busy with preparations for your child’s graduation.  One of the exciting things that your child will have the opportunity to take part in is PROJECT GRADUATION.   Project Graduation, held the evening of Graduation, is an all night event full of fun, food and activities designed by Senior parents and supported through fundraising efforts held throughout the school year.  It is something the Seniors really look forward to and nearly every Senior takes part!

WHERE YOU COME IN:

Traditionally, Junior Parents lend a hand by chaperoning this event held Graduation night, which this year is Sunday, June 7th 2015.  JUNIOR PARENTS WE NEED YOUR HELP!!  Please consider volunteering to chaperone Project Graduation and see what all the excitement is about!  Contact  Karen Collmus at kcoll@maine.rr.com  or Debbie Jabar atmamajabs@gmail.com as soon as possible.

Also, we are looking for Junior Parents willing to be involved to take over Project Graduation 2016 and to help plan a wonderful event for your own children.  Those interested are asked to contact Karen Collmus at: kcoll@maine.rr.com.

Thank you!

Project Graduation Co-Chairs:

Karen Collmus  & Debbie Jabar


JUNIOR PARENTS

If you have not yet submitted your Parent College Planning Questionnaire or Student College Planning Questionnaire, please do so right away.  The Guidance Office has already begun preparing college letters of recommendations.  These questionnaires enable us to prepare the strongest possible recommendation in support of each student's college applications.

Without these questionnaires, your student will be at a disadvantage in the college planning process.

The Parent and Student College Planning Questionnaires can be filled out on paper or on line, and it can be returned electronically, by mail, dropped off at the Guidance Office. It was mailed to all junior parents in January, and is also available on the Guidance website:
