Since the early 1980s, parents across the country have organized Project Graduation parties, alcohol- and drug-free gatherings that follow graduation ceremonies. Project Graduation is a program developed by the Texas Department of Transportation, as a way of educating our students about the dangers of alcohol abuse, especially during one of the worse nights for teenage driving fatalities, graduation night. Project Graduation provides for a drug-free, parent supervised, fun-filled all-night celebration that includes food, games, prizes and celebration with friends, in a way that guarantees that our students will be safe and go on to live to their potentials. We want all our graduating seniors to be safe and not be tempted to attend unsupervised, alcohol-fueled parties. This is why our parents work all year to raise money and plan for the event. The true goal is to provide enough money to invite all graduating seniors to Project Graduation, free of charge.
This year is no different for the Blanco High School Class of 2012. Many fundraisers are planned for the year with the traditional Powder Puff football game being the first big event. This year, the event will be held on Wednesday, November 30, at 6:30pm at Panther Stadium. The undefeated Class of 2012 will be taking on the Juniors for bragging rights. The cost will be $5.00 at the gate. Come out to show your support!
