Project Graduation is a group organized by senior parents, with the assistance of the senior class. Project Graduation is an all-night, chemical-free party for seniors held on graduation night. Games, activities and door prizes are a part of this final event for the graduating class. It is held at many high schools across the country, having started in the 50’s as a way to help protect high school graduates and keep them off the roads on one of the most deadliests nights for teenagers. The students may participate in various fund-raising and service hour activities to acquire "play money" to use the night of the games and auction. Events include fundraising activities beginning their freshman year with t-shirt/hoodie sales, spring plant sale, fish fry, wreath sale and culmination their senior year with a "Mack Hatcher Mob" t-shirt sale.
