CENTURY SENIOR PARTY OPEN HOUSE


The Century Senior Party Committee would like to invite the public to an open house on Saturday, June 10th from 3-5 PM at Century High School.

 

Each year the Century Senior Parents host an all night lock-in at the high school for our seniors to celebrate in a fun-filled, safe environment.  Throughout the night there will be a variety of games, food, entertainment, and prizes.  Early in the planning, a theme is selected and is kept secret from the students.  Over the next few days, the school will be transformed into this year’s theme.  

 

We invite you and your families to stop by Century High School to walk through this year’s transformation and to get a glimpse of the night we have planned for our Seniors!

 

Sorry, no Seniors will be allowed on the tour. Remember, it is a SURPRISE for them!

Parents of Juniors


Now is the time to start thinking about the graduation party for your students next year.  It is a great time to start getting involved for a smooth transition for next year’s event.  The senior party committee this year would be happy to meet with any junior parents interested in helping out next year to let you know about the various committee positions.  They include committee chairs, decorating committee, fundraising, food, games, entertainment and more.  Send a note to century2017seniorparty@gmail.com
 
Traditionally Junior parents help out the senior parents on the day of graduation and the
morning after the party.  So how can you help out?
 
Saturday,
June 10th:  
The community is invited to take a tour of Century
and see the Senior Party decorations for the class of 2017 between 3:00 - 5:00
PM.  We need junior parents to help monitor the building and ensure the
security of all the party decorations.  This is a great chance to see what
was done for the senior class this year and get ideas for next.  If you
are interested in this, send a note to
century2017seniorparty@gmail.com 

Sunday,
June 11th:
at
5:00 AM it is your chance to store away decorations, games and supplies to use
at your students’ senior graduation party in 2018.  The more the merrier
and the faster the clean-up will be done with the items safely stored and
organized for your group next year.  It would be great if somebody wanted
to head this effort to organize the junior volunteers.  We have set up a
volunteer sign-up spot for you at:
http://signup.com/go/hETfbOJ
 
Just
click on the link and sign-up to help.

The
parents of the class of 2017 certainly appreciate your willingness to help!
