Plans for an “all-night social gathering” on the Woodhaven Excessive College soccer subject are in full swing Information
With so many school activities suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, students in the Woodhaven-Brownstown School District didn’t have much reason to celebrate.
You do it now.
In fact, the district invites its seniors to a “night party” at the end of the day.
School officials are planning an outdoor party to be held on June 14 from 10 p.m. to 2 p.m.
The theme is casino night and the cost is $ 20 per student.
Hosting an overnight graduate party has been a tradition in the district for at least 15 years.
Headmaster Matthew Czajkowski said the event had to be canceled last year because of the pandemic for seniors.
Although some events that were popular in the past won’t happen this year due to pandemic restrictions, Czajkowski said there will be plenty of entertainment for everyone.
“There will be henna tattoos – which will be worn out in about five days, fire pits, catering, a dessert table, food truck, hypnotist, and lots of hand sanitizer,” he said, mentioning some festivities.
There will be four heated tents in the field.
In recent years there have also been inflatables, climbing, competitions and an ice cream stand.
All graduates receive a t-shirt.
According to the client, the event is usually well attended.
It usually attracts about 80 percent of the senior class.
Czajkowski estimates that about 30 percent of the parents come out and monitor the events.
A solid number of employees also support the event.
The school principal said about 60 percent of them are attending the affair to bid the seniors a ceremonial farewell.
The fundraising process by a small but hardworking core group of parents usually takes place year-round, but many of the events they coordinate have been canceled due to the pandemic.
It’s a tight budget to host an event that typically costs around $ 20,000 to run.
All school food is free and the animators have to be paid.
“I’m just happy to give them a sense of normalcy,” said Czajkowski.
What is unfortunate for him is the fact that there is a good chance that fewer students will be attending because of concerns about the virus and that it will take place outside.
Czajkowski said that favorite party activity rules the game and seems to change every year.
Although this year’s event will be a little different, Czajkowski said that it is worth celebrating an event at all.
“Seeing smiles on their faces makes us happy too,” he said. “Now we only hope and pray for good weather.”
