SRHS Update: Week of April 30

Dear Parents, Students, and Friends of Sanborn Regional High School. Welcome back from vacation! We are now on the fast track to the end of the year, and May is jam-packed with lots of events as we start to close out the 2011-2012 school year. Here are your important announcements for the week:
1. Did you know we now have our very own PTO? Please consider joining. The membership form is attached. Speaking of the PTO.... 

OUR new PTO will be holding its first major fundraiser on the evening of Friday May 18. It will be a comedy show at Sawyers. Tickets will be on sale after vacation for $20 each. Your ticket includes free appetizers, access to lots of raffle prize options, and a cash bar. Two Vegas comedians will perform. This will be a GREAT night out. Save the date!

Meanwhile, to make this event a success, the PTO needs donations of items or gift certificates for the raffles. Please see the message below from the PTO (or the attached letter) for information on how YOU can help support the PTO in collecting these items. I hope you will consider coming out for a great night of laughs on May 18 too!

3. Tonight, join us at 6pm for the induction ceremonies for the Spanish, French, and National Honor Societies in the cafe/auditorium.

4. For parents of current 8th grade students, we will be hosting a "move-up" dance on Friday from 7-9pm in the cafeteria for current 8th grade students from area middle schools who plan to attend SRHS in the fall. Please spread the word!

5. I have attached a letter of important senior dates that was distributed to all seniors before vacation. It also describes how graduation will work. Please review.

6. May is a busy "testing" month. 9th and 10th graders will be taking NWEA tests, juniors take NECAP Science tests, and many seniors (and some juniors) will be taking various AP tests. Our schedule may be adjusted from time to time to accommodate all of these interruptions, but we will do our best to keep the days running as smooth as possible.

7. Last week, the School Board determined that the last day of school for students will be Wednesday, June 13 (unless we have additional weather cancellations).

8. Join us next Monday evening, May 7, for our spring music concert at 7pm in the auditorium.

9. Finally...

This message is from the post-prom planning committee:

The After-Prom Party will be held at the High School from Midnight until
5:00am. There is no cost to the student or the school for anything for the
After-Prom Party.

The After-Prom Party will be Beach Theme, casual dress. We will have a rack
for the kids to hang their tux and gowns (although we cannot take
responsibility for the outfits as we do not have the adult man-power to have
a 'coat-room'). The kids can bring a bag w/ change of clothes with them to
school, bags can be dropped off at the front office (their bags will be
searched at that time to ensure safety at After-Prom Party). Ensure bag is
clearly marked with the student's name.

It is a substance-free, adult supervised event. We will have a bonfire at
Midnight (with Kingston Fire Dept at fireside), we will serve donated pizza
& Mini-Moe's sandwiches, soda/water.

Then at 1:00 am they will enter the High School, once they enter high school
all bags are searched by Kingston Police Dept /School Board Member then the
student will sign in and must stay at party until 5am (if the student wants
to leave the party then a parent/guardian must come to the HS and sign out
the student(s) and take full responsibility for the departing student).
Students that have the appearance of being "under the influence", as
determined by the police officers, will not be allowed entrance into the
After-Prom Party.

The After-Prom Party Planning Committee have been raising funds to have the
following entertainment (and with the generous donations from local
businesses and parents - please see sponsor board at the High School):

A DJ will play starting after bonfire, to keep the dancing going... if
students want the DJ will also have some interactive games.

A Photo Booth (with box of props for some silly fun) with unlimited usage.

2 giant inflatables (an obstacle course w/basketball hoop & a 'moon walk'
bounce house).

ping pong, basketball, volleyball w/beach ball, movies in auditorium for
those that want to relax, raffles (for all attendees) throughout the party.
If weather warm enough the students will be allowed out on the patio off the
cafe (so long as we have enough adult supervision).

Working toward having a "boardwalk" type thing with different food places,
popcorn / soft pretzels / cotton candy / fudge, going along the "walk"
{although we don't have this stuff purchased yet}.

Ice Cream Social about 2:30am.

at 4:00am Party will end with a continental breakfast and the Grand Prize
will be drawn. Grand Prize is the cost of 2 prom tickets and 2 coach bus
tickets refunded to student ($150.00). Only the Junior/Senior students will
receive a ticket for the Grand Prize.

The kids will be able to leave/be picked up without being signed out at
5:00am.

If you would like to donate toward the After-Prom Party, you can send a
check to the school (mail or student can drop off at front office if want).
Write check payable "Class of 2013/SRHS" and in memo line write 'After-Prom
Party".

If a parent would like to volunteer to chaperone / help set-up / help serve
breakfast / or clean up at the After-Prom Party please let me know.

What we really need help with is chaperoning at the party and it can be done
in shifts for a couple hours per shift. Your child does not have to worry
about you "hanging around" them because there are so many things to do that
we chaperones will be working all over the party area (two years ago my
daughter had to come find me if she want to see me - and she did!) - no one
"follows" the students around during the party.

If you have any questions contact me (see below):
Thanks, Theresa
