FUNDRAISING & GUIDELINES FOR PROM @ JHS
Tuesday, June 27th, 2017, 5:00 pm
Club de Golf Montcalm, St. Liguori
Throughout the school year, each graduating student will have numerous opportunities to participate in fundraising activities in order to raise money to put towards the cost of their prom ticket. Only the profit earned for what is sold is deducted from the cost of each graduate’s ticket. For example;
- Joe sells 1 tub of cookie dough that costs $14. The profit he earns from that tub is $9. That $9 will be deducted from the cost of his prom ticket.
The money raised from fundraisers like bake sales is simply deposited into the Prom 2017 account. It is too difficult to calculate how much each person sold and what each person brought and so on, therefore the money will simply be deposited as a global amount, not for individual students. The advisor keeps a record for each student.
For example, if a student earns a profit of $60 and the ticket costs $100, then the remaining $40 must be paid either by cash or cheque made payable to JHS. The deadline to pay the balance is June 7th, 2017. Post-dated cheques must be made payable for no later than June 20th, 2017. The final cost of the ticket will be determined at the beginning of May.
The cost of a graduating student’s guest (one guest per graduating student), who is not in the graduating class (from JHS or elsewhere), may also be paid for with the money the student raises throughout the year. The deadline is the same: June 7th, 2017.
If a graduating student and/or their guest can no longer attend the Prom, they must give a minimum of 3 days’ notice to the adviser. No money can be refunded to a graduating student and/or their guest if they cancel on the day of the Prom, or if they simply do not show up to the Prom.
Graduating students are expected to behave properly throughout the duration of the Prom activity. They are responsible not only for themselves, but also for their guest. Staff members are not there to enforce discipline! It should go without saying that absolutely no drugs and/or alcohol are permitted at the Prom or anywhere on the premises, even if the student or their guest is over 18. Students will not be permitted to go back and forth to the parking lot unless it is an emergency. Students are also not allowed on the golf course, nor to use golf carts. Security guards are hired to enforce the rules and to ensure the safety of everyone concerned. Anyone found breaking the rules will immediately be asked to leave and escorted off the premises by security.
***Please remember that the JHS Prom is an extra-curricular activity and the balance of the graduating student’s school fees must be paid in full, before the Prom, in order to attend.***
If you have any questions, please contact the school and speak either to Mrs. Lowry or Mme Rainville, Grad Committee advisers.
