Operation Graduation 2018
After Ball Party
June 3, 2018

Operation Graduation is an activity that promotes an alcohol/drug free environment for seniors after the senior ball.  It is a nationally known program and has been in operation at JDHS since the 1980s.  Every year this event is held free of charge for the senior class and their dates.  The need for this event is evident and each year nearly 100% of the senior class attends.  The party provides a safe and fun-filled way for the seniors to continue spending time together immediately following the Senior Ball.  The Class of 2018 Operation Graduation needs parent volunteers to organize and raise money for the After Ball Party.

Donations needed!!!  We're starting to gather prizes for the After Ball Party.  Students will have the opportunity to win these prizes throughout the evening.  We are looking for gift cards of any denomination that would benefit our future college students.  If you're interested in donating, please drop off gift cards to Jackie Wheeler in the Main Office or Sue Smith....(315)  Thank you for your support!

Our next bottle drive is Saturday, May 5th from 10:00-2:00 at Robbie T's and Moses DeWitt Elementary.

Organizational meetings are held throughout the year.  Jackie Wheeler and Sue Smith are Co-Chairs for Operation Graduation 2018.  We still need volunteers for help with the party itself and to help co-chair smaller committees.  Our next meeting is Tuesday, March 20 at 7:00 pm in the HS Library.......Please join us!
