Activities

Many planners for Project Graduation have found it helpful to distribute a"Senior Survey," a selection list of possible activities to get input from the entire class. Seniors vote for the activities that appeal to them most. Senior Surveys are explored more fully in the Entertainment Committee section, and a sample Senior Survey appears at the end of this booklet. Popular activities have included these:

Music: Live bands, DJ's, music videos

Dances: Dances and dance contests

Entertainers: Comedians, magicians, hypnotists, caricaturists, etc.

Class Histories: Slide shows, skits, and class wills Food: Progressive dinners, cookouts, buffets, snacks, breakfasts(perhaps pool-side at sunrise)

Games: Arcades, casinos, video games, pool, miniature golf, school trivia, scavenger hunts, team relays, bingo, eating contests, Jell-O wrestling, mashed potato fights, paint-ball,watching videos.

Athletics: G-Force Laser Tag, Tennis, racquetball, volleyball, bowling, roller skating, ping pong, swimming, weight lifting, aerobic dancing, donkey, basketball

The Unusual: Tethered hot air balloon rides; creating a giant sundae or submarine sandwich; graffiti wall of butcher paper on which to record feelings; boat rides; talent shows; camp outs.

Students' Selling Points. One big party will be much more fun and will offer a wider variety of activities than smaller private parties.

This will probably be the last time that the entire class will be together. It will be a night to remember . . . and chemical-free seniors will be able to remember it.

Seniors will select the activities, food, and entertainment to assure that the party will be great fun for their class. Seniors will be leaving a legacy of safe celebrations for undergraduates - a legacy that will probably save the lives of future graduates.

Teachers' Selling Points. All seniors will have a party to attend on graduation night. Some students will discover or rediscover what a great time they can have without alcohol or drugs. A tradition of substance-free parties will be established or reaffirmed in the school district.

An activity like Project Graduation can enhance the school's community relations.

Parents' Selling Points. No one will have to risk injury or death due to drug related crashes. None of the seniors will have to deal with peer pressure to drink or ride with a drinking driver on their special night.

Cost will be minimal to students and parents. Parents can relax on graduation night knowing seniors are safe and having fun.
