What is PROJECT GRADUATION?
FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
A GREAT SUCCESS!
Monday, June 20, 2022
PROJECT GRADUATION is a traditional gift that the families of HPHS and supporters throughout the community give to our graduating seniors so that they may enjoy night-long festivities together in a safe, chaperoned, tobacco-, drug-, and alcohol-free environment.
In collecting funds for the PROJECT GRADUATION gift, we ensure that all our graduates have the opportunity to be together on the night of their graduation to celebrate their achievements and to feel the pride of the community that supports them.
When and where is PROJECT GRADUATION held?
PROJECT GRADUATION 2022 will be held on Monday, June 20, 2022 (the night of graduation) at the Woodbridge Community Center. There, students will enjoy activities ranging from swimming to roller skating to games to yearbook signing, and more.
Buses will provide transportation for ALL students to and from the high school.
How can businesses, individuals, or families support PROJECT GRADUATION?
There was a time, pre-COVID, when the organizers of PROJECT GRADUATION could hold fun, get-together events to raise money. But while we can't meet up, there are still plenty of ways to make sure the 2022 gift to our seniors is a success.

Some words from
HPHS Principal Michael J. Lassiter
about PROJECT GRADUATION
Project Graduation began with the class of 1991 at Highland Park High School. Principal Joseph Hood worked with teachers, the student assistance coordinator, and the parents of the graduating class to establish a safe celebration for our graduating seniors. Parents of the graduating class raise funds to ensure that on graduation night all of our seniors, regardless of means, will celebrate in a safe, supervised atmosphere.
