Overview- Graduation Gala Committee

  • Dear Parents and Guardians of Mahwah High School 2018 Seniors,

    It’s finally here!  Twelve years have gone by in the blink of an eye and graduation will soon be here!  For several years, Mahwah has offered a fun, safe and substance-free celebration for the graduates immediately following the ceremony at Ramapo College.  All graduating seniors are cordially invited and encouraged to be a part of this tradition.  The graduates will travel on buses to a Secret Location and will not be drinking, driving or engaging in any risky activity. It will be a moment in time for them to treasure and the last time they will all be together as a group.  We sincerely hope your senior will participate.

    As the Graduation Gala Committee, we will strive to keep the cost manageable and provide a night our children will always remember.   In order to secure the venue, a full payment of $150.00 is required ASAP.  This will reserve a spot for your child. 

    As you can imagine, an event of this magnitude is expensive.  It will be the Committee’s mission, with your help, to raise enough money to provide the students everything necessary for a memorable evening!  We recognize that these are hard economic times.  If you find that you are unable to make full payment, please contact Principal John Pascale.  We want all of our graduating seniors to attend this magical night!

    Attached is the ticket and permission form.  Please read the release and rules carefully and send the form with payment IMMEDIATELY.
