Parents of each year's seniors have committed to plan and host an all-night graduation party that is guaranteed to be free of alcohol and drugs. The fundraising activities are to pay for the activities, event location, insurance, food and prizes. If it is held off campus, transportation is provided to and from the event. It is the hope that all seniors who desire to attend can do so for free. However, students are expected to participate in the planning and fundraising activities.
In recent years, the Stayton Boosters Club has agreed to act as the sponsor of the event so organizers could utilize the Booster's non-profit status to apply for grants. There is a steering committee for the party planning made up of the current year's parents. Regular meetings are every 3rd Tuesday @ 7:00pm in the high school library, unless there is a scheduling conflict.
There is a Facebook page under "Stayton High Class of 2023"
It is a private group so you need to request access to join. It is a great place to find meeting agendas, minutes and upcoming fundraising event info. Upcoming meetings and events are also included on SHS website calendar. If you have further questions, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
