Project Graduation Offers Senior Book Fundraiser

The goal of the Senior Book fundraiser is to promote senior specific events like Project Graduation, Prom, Graduation, Fall Senior Athletes, Senior Organization and Club members, and more. Senior parents can create fun memory ads for their senior that would be included in this one time publication. The proceeds will go to Project Graduation.

Ads purchased for this Senior Book are only included within the Project Graduation publication. For information on Senior Ads for The Creek Yearbook, please click here.
