Imagine hosting a four-hour party for more than 325 high school seniors. That’s what happens every May as Stagg’s seniors celebrate together one last time before graduation. Tickets include a T-shirt, entry into the raffle, all the food they can eat and entertainment such as a hypnotist, roller skating, obstacle course and cotton candy.
We could not pull this off without a lot of parent volunteers both in advance and that weekend. We depend on volunteers for the following:
Soliciting donations of food, raffle prizes and items for goodie bags seniors take home.
Decorating the Commons the night before the party – and putting the decorations away the morning after.
Filling coolers with beverages.
Donating desserts for the sweets table.
Helping serve food that night.
Cleaning up the kitchen.
Chaperoning students as they participate in various activities.
The senior party committee meets monthly starting in February to plan the event and organize volunteers. The first meeting to plan the 2018 party is 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 15, in Room 605. Parents of any Stagg students are welcome! If you would like to volunteer in any capacity, email StaggPTO@gmail.com.
