Grad Night

GRAD NIGHT

The purpose of Grad Night is twofold: to hold an event for the graduates so that they can have a wonderful, fun, and memorable senior night with their fellow graduates; and to have a safe environment where the graduates do not have to drive. The event begins in the later evening of graduation day to allow families to have celebrations and dinner together and does not end until early morning.

The event is planned and run by parents of seniors. Fundraisers help to lower the cost per student. If you wish to help with planning and raising funds contact Lisa Riggs lisariggs11@gmail.com or Drena Large Drenalarge@sbcglobal.net . If you can help chaperone the evening of grad night contact Robyn Giffin rlgiffin@yahoo.com.

FUNDRAISERS – How you can help make Grad Night happen:

Buy Scrip

Scrip is a fundraiser in which you purchase gift cards and certificates at face value and the school gets money back for each purchase. When many people are using the system, it can be a great way to raise funds while just doing your normal shopping for groceries, gas, clothes, online and more. Over 850 brands are available on the site.

There are two ways to participate with Scrip. The first way is to buy physical cards to use at stores. The instructions are below.

  1. Complete the order form available in the Main Office and on the Prospect High School website (found on the Home Page under Resources/Quick links/SCRIP) and drop off with your check or cash payment to the school main office. Make check payable to “Prospect Grad Night”.
  2. Orders are processed weekly on Tuesday morning and at additional times if you notify Sandy at rsblack@pacbell.net.
  3.   Most orders will be filled within 72 hours. If scrip is not in stock, you will be notified by email and your order will be filled in approximately 7-10 business days.
  4. You will be notified when your order is available and delivery/pick up will be arranged at that time.

Any questions regarding physical Scrip? Contact Sandy Black at rsblack@pacbell.net or 408-374-7059.

The second way you can participate with Scrip is to purchase your electronic or virtual gift certificates on-line. This method, once it is set up, is very convenient and a time saver to use. For example, I use Amazon Prime frequently. I purchase my Amazon gift certificate, get an email when it is ready, and just copy the code into my Amazon account and the gift certificate funds are available to use on Amazon in usually about 5-10 minutes. Or I can print out the virtual gift card and take it to a store to use in minutes.

The basic process is this:

  1. Set up a ShopWithScrip account
  2. Set up a PrestoPay account
  3. Purchase electronic gift certificates on the ShopWithScrip site and pay for them using PrestoPay pin number.
  4. You get an email with a link to your gift certificates. You can give them as electronic gifts or shop yourself.

If you would like to set up your family to use ShopwithScrip from your home contact Janet Chance jdc4444@yahoo.com or Diane Emile diane_emile@yahoo.com.
