It is the job of the clean up committee to, of course, clean up after
Project Graduation is over. Since you will need some sleep first,
it's best to schedule clean up duty for the night after Project Graduation.
Here are someways to prepare for the post-party tidying:
Check with the decorations committee to find out what supplies and
tools the clean up committee will need to bring. Also ask if any of
the decorations are to be saved for future Project Graduations.
Find out from the food committee what arrangements have been made to donate
leftover food to a charitable organization.
Go to the facilities ahead of time and find out where the light switches are,
what types of cleaning surfaces will be involved, etc.
Ask the entertainment committee exactly what the owners of the facilities
expect you to do. Can you leave plastic bags of trash in a certain
area for pick up or will you be expected to take the trash with you?
Are you to clean the restrooms, or will the regular custodians take
care of that duty? What should you do with the keys after cleanup?
Provide many large trash cans around the party so that students
will dispose of their own trash. This will save the clean up committee
a great deal of work.
Rules for Adult Volunteers
When the members of the chaperone/rules committee are preparing
the list of rules for students to follow at Project Graduation,
they may also want to establish some basic rules for adult volunteers
who will be working at the party. Several successful Project Graduations
have communicated these two rules to volunteers:
All volunteers are expected to be alcohol-and drug-free upon arrival,and to remain alcohol-and drug-free while at Project Graduation.
Volunteers are asked to leave Project Graduation after their shifts
are over to avoid having too many adults at the party. It's important
for everyone to feel that Project Graduation is a party for seniors.
Rules for Seniors
The use or possession of alcohol or drugs will not be allowed.
A student possessing, using, or showing the effects of chemicals
will be held in the party sick room until a parent or guardian arrives
to pickup the student.
Students will not be admitted to Project Graduation if they arrive
after a certain time. Exceptions must be cleared with the Project
Any students who leave the party early must sign out. They will
not be readmitted under any circumstances. (Chaperones at some Project
Graduations call the parents of students who leave early to let them
know that the students are on the road). If a student must go to a
car for any reason, a male chaperone will accompany the student to
the vehicle and back to the party.
|Take Some Advice!
According to graduating seniors, Project Graduation is
always a smashing success. They have reported that their
parties have been more fun than any in the history of their
schools. In many communities, chemical-free celebrations
have become a legacy, with secrets for great planning passed
from one class to the next. In other areas, Project Graduation
type parties are a relatively new tradition, having been
in place for only a few years. If your class has never experienced
Project Graduation, take the advice of your generation -
and get on board!
