Tips for the Food Committee

  • Serve food all night rather than scheduling specific serving times that could interrupt dancing, games, and party continuity.
  • Provide plenty of soft drinks. Students will drink more than you imagine. You will probably be able to return any that are unopened.
  • Consider serving finger foods to avoid using (washing) cutlery.
  • Make sure you have ample food for volunteers.
  • Use multiple food stations. Some possibilities include tacos, deli sandwiches, salad bars, ice cream carts, popcorn machines, and soft drink stands.
  • Make arrangement with a local homeless shelter or similar organization to pick up left over food.

    Decorating Committee

    The decorating committee is responsible for decorating the facilities and food tables. It is crucial that they work with the other committees, the Project Graduation chairperson, and the local fire department.

    Tips for the Decorating Committee

  • Balloons, balloons, balloons! Some could even be hung in a big net above the dance area to be released all at once.
  • Crepe paper and streamers
  • Posters
  • Plastic wall coverings - long, wide rolls of plastic are available in many stores where landscaping and construction supplies are sold.
  • A sign post in a central location, giving directions to various activities.
  • A huge parachute hung over the entire area to provide a canopy atmosphere.
  • Costumes - garters on men's sleeves, visors, black vests for a casino theme - and women in the costumes of the appropriate era.
  • Dimmed lights . . . colored lights . . . rotating mirrored ball on the ceiling.

    Public Relations Committee

    The public relations (PR) committee is in charge of generating awareness and enthusiasm for Project Graduation among students and in the community. It is also the responsibility of the PR committee to thank the organizations who have donated money, merchandise, and services by listing them in a news release and by sending them notes of appreciation after Project Graduation is over. The two major target audiences that the PRcommittee must work with are the student body and the members of the community.
