Cookies and Volunteers Needed for Graduation Reception

Cookies, cookies, please bring your cookies! Our school has a lovely tradition of providing home-baked cookies for new graduates, their friends and families at a reception immediately after the graduation ceremony each spring. The cookies are baked by the families of juniors, sophomores and freshmen and brought to school on the last Thursday or Friday of the school year. We are asking if families could bake 3 or 4 dozen homemade cookies, pack them in foil-lined shoe boxes (or disposable containers we can stack and transport to the graduation site) and bring them to school on the morning of June 17 or June 18. The cookies will be collected in the Blue Stone Lobby between 7:40 and 8:40 am, where two community service hours will be awarded for this contribution to our school community (one hour awarded for store bought cookies).

This project happens during exam week! With advanced planning the cookie baking can be a fun study break. People will savor your efforts.

The PTSA needs parent and student volunteers to assist with the Senior Reception on June 18. Help is needed transporting cookies, beverages and gear to the Landmark Theater in the morning, preparing the cookies and the Ballroom for the afternoon reception, serving, and finally, a quick, efficient clean-up team. Contact Julie May ( or 550-4998) to volunteer or with any questions about baking or the Senior Reception.
