There will be plenty of personnel and signage to assist people getting where they need to go, but we can nevertheless expect a great deal of traffic that day. Everyone should be prepared and not be surprised if a short walk to the venue is involved.

PROJECT GRADUATION: (Info from Project Grad organizers)
We have 305 seniors registered to attend Project Graduation!!! This is just amazing and we are very excited that so many seniors are participating!!
If your senior didn’t pick up his/her PG16 keepsake t-shirt during lunch last week, we will have them at Rehearsal or at the Main Event the night of the event. IF your senior wants his/her shirt in advance, please text me to arrange a time to come by and pick it up. (Seniors who registered by April 29th were guaranteed a keepsake t-shirt.)
IMPORTANT: Every senior and guest who attends the Project Graduation event must return the Project Graduation Contract. Your senior received it if s/he picked up the T-shirt, if not, click here: PG Form 2016
It includes details on check in time, latest arrival time, suggestions on attire, how raffle tickets and prizes will be awarded, and the rules around prohibited substances. PLEASE ensure your senior has read and understands the guidelines. The contract must be signed by the senior and parent and returned to the office by May 27 or s/he can bring it the night of the event. But seniors will NOT be admitted until they have read and returned the contract.
