Senior Video

Seniors,

If you want to be in the senior video…. I need from you:

  • 1-baby picture
  • 1-elementary aged picture
  • 1-middle school picture
  • 1-high school picture

(The video is separated in 4 parts- your individual picture can be in each section only once.)

+ you can bring in as many “buddie” pictures as you’d like (such as: elementary school class pictures, little league team pictures, 13th birthday party pictures….any picture that has more than 1 “senior” in it.)

ON THE BACK OF EACH PICTURE PUT YOUR NAME, THE AGE/GRADE YOU ARE IN THE PICTURE AND THE 

NAMES OF ALL SENIORS IN THE PICTURE (IF I CAN’T TELL WHO IS WHO, INDICATE WHICH PERSON IS WHICH)

I want pictures ONLY… no discs, no flash drives (if that’s a problem, please see me…..)

Bring these in an envelope with your name and # of included pictures on the envelope. You’ll get them back by the end of the year.

Pictures are due Friday BEFORE Spring break…

Don’t be left out!!!!

Project Graduation

The project graduation tradition began in Maine in 1990 in response to the tragic loss of 18 teens due to alcohol/drug related crashes while celebrating graduation.  Lake Gibson has adapted the tradition of an all-night alcohol/drug-free celebration and we will continue it this year.

Our kids will once again be going on a cruise aboard the Starship Dinner Cruise.  We will need committees  for fundraisers, donations, and entertainment, so if any of these interests you please let us know at the numbers or email address below.

Some fundraisers already suggested that have been successful in the past:

Garage Sale in March
A Middle School dance for LGMS sometime in April Working at local
restaurants for part of the proceeds
