Planning for the Safe Grad is an opportunity for the parents of graduating students to give their children a safe environment to celebrate with friends and classmates during the night following the prom. Parents can help by volunteering for one of the four subcommittees (Fundraising, Food and Beverage, Entertainment and Decorating). Parents are also welcome to make a donation of food or entertainment items; donate a gift card or gift for the Safe Grad; make a financial contribution or support our fund raisers activities.
You can continue to bring your recyclables to a recycling depot and quote the Booth Memorial Safe Grad Account Number 1030272.

Congratulations to the 50/50 Draw Winner: Emily Pickett
If you can help out on one of these subcommittees, please contact the school and they will pass along your name and contact information. We look forward to any assistance you can provide to the Safe Grad Committee and more importantly, to a very successful 2014 Safe Grad.

Easter 2015 .. Trip to Iceland Being Planned
Plans are underway for an exciting trip to Iceland during the 2015 Easter break. Students participating in the ‘Iceland; Glaciers and Geysers’ will spend 6 days visiting some of the most spectacular sites on the globe!
