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
Make arrangement with a local homeless shelter or similar organization to
pick up left over food.
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 streamersPosters
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.
