After the graduation ceremony on May 26, Project Graduation is hosting a lock-in at Main Event in N. Fort Worth from 11:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. the next day. The event will be an all night lock-in including unlimited bowling, laser tag, video games, billiards, gravity ropes course, karaoke, and door prizes. Food will be provided at the event, including a pizza buffet, continental breakfast and unlimited beverages. Each senior will be given a game card that allows him/her to play unlimited games all night long.
Seniors will need to complete a registration form to attend the Project Graduation event. The price increases incrementally as it gets closer to the event, so students should not delay on signing up.
There are three different registration packages when signing up. By May 1, seniors may pay $90.00 to receive 10 raffle tickets as well as a t-shirt. If seniors decide to pay $65.00 by May 25, they’ll receive five raffle tickets to be entered to win a door prize. If seniors don’t buy either packages, they may pay $80.00 at the door and receive three raffle tickets. If seniors register by April 30, they will receive 25 additional raffle tickets. Check in at Main Event starts at 11:30 p.m. however, no one will be admitted after 1 a.m.
Tickets can also be paid online via square through the website at https://squareup.com/store/project-graduation-2. Or by sending a check to TCHS Project Graduation. Sponsors can also be found at lunch most Friday’s during ALL lunches to pay for registrations, shirts, signs, and turn in paperwork.
With the tickets, seniors have the chance to win door prizes through a raffle. The prizes include laptops, tablets, printers, televisions, microwaves, gift cards, and many more. Throughout the 2017-2018 school year, seniors have had the opportunity to work towards earning raffle tickets through projects and fundraisers like Senior Serve, on April 19, and Flamingo Flocking.
They may also have a chance to win a free project graduation ticket. If they sell $200 worth of Yankee Candle now through March 30. Yankee Candle packet’s can be picked up in the front office.
Additionally, seniors are allowed to bring a guest (senior from another school). The guest will pay the same price as the TC senior, but s/he will not be eligible for any prizes. Senior guests will need to complete a guest form, similar to what is required for Homecoming and Prom. See contact information below to get a guest form.
The concept behind Project Graduation began in the early 1980s, when many students in Maine lost their lives due to alcohol-related car accidents associated with graduation parties. Concerned parents decided to take a stand against these incidents and came up with the idea of Project Graduation. By the end of 1986, Texas alone hosted 200 successful alcohol and chemical-free graduation celebrations.
Any questions can be answered by Stephanie Miller, the Project Graduation President, at (817) 689-9958 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, Project Graduation representatives will be on the stage on Fridays during lunches to answer questions.
