‘Project Graduation’ planning now under way at Kubasaki

Date Posted: 2004-09-16

Plans for a quality graduation event are now in the works at Kubasaki High School.

Parents of the Senior Class of 2005 are kicking their fund raising efforts off this weekend with a furniture and gift bazaar Saturday, September from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. in the Kubasaki High School Gymnasium and Cafeteria at Camp Foster.

The concept of Project Graduation began some 19 years ago in Maine, after seven students lost their lives on graduation night in an alcohol/drug related accident. When teens celebrate their graduation from high school, it is a time filled with pride, accomplishments, and future goals. When the celebration of this success is teamed with drinking and driving, the celebration can quickly turn to tragedy.

Project Graduation is generally the last opportunity for most of these students to see each other for a long time. It is important that this be a very memorable time for them. By hosting a Project Graduation celebration, the graduating students won’t have to make the decision whether or not to use drugs or alcohol on graduation night. They won’t have to worry about driving with someone who is under the influence. Instead, they’ll attend a party with their classmates and learn what a great time they can have without the use of alcohol or other drugs.

Project Graduation involves an enormous amount of volunteer time, as well as a very sizable budget. The event is organized and funded by parents, family members, and the support of the local business community. Expenses include decorations, entertainment, food, and prizes given out at the party. The greatest percentage of funding goes toward the prize giveaways.

Plans are currently underway for entertaining the graduating Kubasaki High School Class of 2005. In an effort to raise funds for the 2005 Project Graduation celebration and Senior Class Trip, the bazaar which will feature beautiful Asian furniture from Seoul Furniture & Antique Co. as well as a variety of popular gifts and treasures from vendors such as Johnny Co., Sakura Treasures, Chelle's Sudz, and My Wicked Scents. Parents urge the community to stop by the bazaar this weekend and show support of Project Graduation.
