BHS Post-Grad Party Needs Parent Chaperones



The Post Graduation Party is one of the most anticipated events for graduating seniors. Since 1991, NONE of Burlington’s graduates have been involved in alcohol-related accidents on their graduation night.

For more than 20 years the Burlington community has come together to host an all-night celebration for the graduating high school class. Typically over 95% of the graduates attend. The party is organized by parent-volunteers. Graduates check-in between 10:00– 11:00pm and the party continues until 5:00am the next morning.

An event of this magnitude requires months of planning and many, many volunteers. The party depends on donated money, prizes, and food. The reward is an investment in our children that pays back each year as the tradition continues to grow. This event is as important to parents as it is to students because it allows you to relax, knowing that your son/daughter is safe at a fully chaperoned, drug and alcohol-free party.

PLEASE HELP: Will you be a chaperone at the BHS Post Graduation (all-night) Party?  We still need chaperones (both men and women) for the overnight shifts on Monday June 11.  We have a few spots open for second shift which is 12 am - 3 am and we have a lot of spots open for 3rd shift which is 3am -5am.   Any adult that does not have a senior at the party is welcome.     Help us this year and when your child graduates, the parents of underclassmen will be there for you!  To volunteer, or if you have any questions, please contact Michele Shields at Michele_Shields@verizon.net or 781-270-5142.
