PROJECT GRADUATION 2021
We invite all seniors to join their classmates to celebrate their Graduation achievement together at Project Graduation 2021!
Project Graduation is an all-night, alcohol and drug-free celebration for graduating seniors - a tradition at Governor Livingston since 1989. Project Graduation receives no funding from the school budget. Monies to support this $35,000 yearly event are raised through fundraisers, grants, business, professional, and parent donations and participant contributions. This year Project Graduation will be held at the Ricochet Sports Club in South Plainfield and is sure to be a great evening for all.
Immediately following graduation, students report to the GLHS cafeteria for check-in. All participants are required to ride the buses to and from Ricochet Sports Club.. Once at Ricochet, participants are not allowed to leave early, unless there are exceptional circumstances AND arrangements were made in writing (in advance) by parents/guardians Parents/guardians are responsible for providing transportation home after the buses return the students to GL around 3:45 AM on June 17th.
Planning is already underway for Project Graduation 2021. Attached is a list of chairs for each Project Graduation event.
