Willamette High School
Here is an opportunity to share your thoughts on what you want our schools to be. Superintendent Colt Gill is hosting two Oregon Rising meetings next week (Tuesday and Wednesday) here at Willamette, and all Wil-Hi parents are encouraged to attend. It’s a chance to share your thoughts in a survey that will tell state leaders what kind of investment in our schools is needed. The more voices, the better. Click here for more information.
Dear Willamette Parents,
The Willamette High School Class of 2016 Graduation Party Committee has scheduled a planning and informational meeting for all Willamette parents on Tuesday, May 3rd at 7PM at Pappy’s Pizza. We hope you can join us!
The success of this substance-free Grad Night Party depends upon parent volunteers-lots of them! And historically, Willamette parents have always come forward to help. As the chairperson of this year’s substance-free Grad Night, I extend my personal invitation to parents of freshman, sophomores, junior and seniors to join with me and a dedicated cadre of parents who have already volunteered their time for the Class of 2016 Grad Night.
With this event, there is no such this as “too much help”. Parents of underclassman are especially welcomed, for two reasons. First, you will need the experience and exposure to this activity to better prepare you for the time when your son or daughter becomes a senior and it’s your turn to run Grad Night-you’ll be experts at that point. Second, and perhaps more importantly, volunteer parents of seniors will have an enormous task as commencement day approaches in June, trying to prepare for their son’s/daughter’s graduation, entertain out-of- town guest and other family and friends who came to witness graduation, in addition to trying to wrap up last minute details associated with the Grad Night party.
Here is a list of the Grad Night areas that need volunteers:
SETUP: We need 8-10 volunteers to help with the party setup and/or delivering food and snacks to the U of O Rec Center. Estimated time frame is 9:30-11:00PM.
CHECK IN: Are you an organized person? This job is for you. We need 10 volunteers who will be responsible for checking in all seniors and getting them loaded onto their assigned busses.
ENTERTAIMENT: I like to party, do you like to party? We have lots of fun games and entertainment planned for the grads, and we need lots of volunteers to help run the booths and activities.
Thank you in advance to everyone that signs up to help ensure that our grads experience an amazing night together before they go their own direction.
