About Us

Mission of Project Graduation:

Project Graduation began in the fall of 1989 when a group of parents came together to create a celebration for the graduating Class of 1990. This event would celebrate the rite of passage onto college life and the first steps of adulthood. It would be a night of fun and revelry, alcohol & substance free & full of activities & games. This 33 year strong tradition continues on & we plan a night of fun for the Class of 2022 that begins with the bus tour around the town of Montclair before heading off to an undisclosed destination filled with fun & activities as the graduates spend their final evening together as one class group. Our aim is to raise the funds so all those who wish to participate have a ticket price that graduating students can afford to pay.

Project Graduation, now in its 33rd year, is organized by MHS parents with support from the Montclair Community.

Some of what has been happening this year so far as we raise funds for the Class of 2022

September 18th
Montclair’s annual Sidewalk Sale invited our Spiritwear team to sell merchandise on Valley road alongside a number of our local stores and MHS Booster clubs. A lovely sunny day brought hordes of folks to the streets who willingly parted with dollars in exchange for this years MHS gear.

October 21st
Our Spiritwear team were back inside the school selling merchandise to students at the in-person College Fair sponsored by Project Graduation. Many excited students purchased excitedly, raising the funds in the piggy bank greatly. A wonderful buzz filled the air seeing students, teachers and colleges mingling in the halls again.

October 22nd
We found many of us out in and about at Montclair Brewery on Walnut Street thanks to Denise & Leo for so generously donating their space to accommodate one of our first in person events. So many of you came out to enjoy some of our parent bands on the backyard patio at Montclair Brewery on a mild fall evening of fun and togetherness.
Thanks to all of you for coming out and to the bands that played:-
She Ain’t Right, Aviva Patz & the Prospectors, and Sock Monster. We had a wonderful time as we added some funds to celebrate our graduating class. Thanks Liz Uva for capturing the merriness of the evening.
