Attention Parents/Guardians – and not just those of upper classman 

MRHS  AFTER -PROM  NEEDS  YOUR  HELP!

AfterProm is not scheduled until April 29th, but various jobs need to be done NOW to once again provide a fun, safe, chemical-free, party for our Juniors & Seniors following Prom. 

We are in need of volunteers for a number of different positions, including, but not limited to:

“COLLEGE BOOTH” -- Always a favorite activity because each student gets a free item of their choice from a wide variety of items donated from colleges across the U.S.  Multiple volunteers are needed to email pre-written letters to a list of colleges.  This can be done at home on your own time, but needs to be completed before end of February.  One volunteer is also needed to update a spreadsheet as donations are received.  

FOOD -- Committee members are needed to plan & purchase food (and supplies).

PUBLICITY -- Volunteers are needed to create & distribute publicity for AfterProm. 

OTHER --  There is a wide range of volunteer opportunities prior to and during the AfterProm event. If you are not sure what you can help with, but would like to be kept abreast of any AfterProm volunteer opportunities, please let us know!! 

Thanks in advance for your help in continuing to provide a fun, safe, After Prom opportunity for our students this year.  It takes many, many hands to make this event a success. Any amount of time you can provide is greatly appreciated!  We are very thankful for those who have already volunteered their time and look forward to hearing from more of our community!

Please reach out to Karen Chase via MRHS PTSA @  mrhshocoptsa@gmail.com   should you have any questions or you are able to volunteer.
