Contribute to Project Graduation 2022

Project Graduation 2022 is a safe chemical free annual event after graduation (6/16/22) for our seniors fully funded by the Somerville HS PTO and the support of donations. It will take place at Rutgers and is amazing opportunity for our graduating class to really enjoy each other’s company as a class one last time.

The event costs about $30,000 in total and fundraising only gets us part of the way there. If you have a graduating senior, consider contributing to help us cover the rest of the cost.
