After Prom:
3 Ways To Support The UHS After Prom:
 
(1) Spring Cleaning & Regifting! Donate New Dorm Items Or Gift Cards For After Prom Prizes!
 
Do you have any gift cards lying around that you haven't used? Do you have any NEW & UNUSED items for the Senior who's about to go off to college that you'd like to regift, such as alarm clocks, desk lamps, throw blankets, irons, towels, extra long twin sheet sets, coffee makers, fans, over the door mirrors etc?  If so, donate them to the After Prom for our new category of raffle prizes -- "Dorm Prizes." We're hoping to collect enough "Dorm Prizes" for every Senior who attends After Prom.
 
(2) Spring & Summer Fun! Second Chance For 41% Off Hershey Park Tickets! Orders Due May 4th
 
If you missed the prior offers of discount Hershey Park tickets, the PTO After Prom Committee is extending its offer to buy tickets for $40 instead of the gate price of $67.80. That's 41% off the gate price! For every 10 tickets we sell, Hershey will give us one free ticket to use as a prize at After Prom. Food vouchers are also available for $12 per meal. The order form is attached to the E-News and must be received in the UHS office by May 4th. Late orders will be returned.
 
(3)  Donate Some Time To Volunteer For After Prom!
 
We are in the crunch time for After Prom planning and we want this years' students to have just as wonderful experience as students in prior years. We are desperately short on volunteers to help decorate rooms (ideas are planned, you just have to help implement then, and we will guide you). We will also need volunteers for set up and staffing the After Prom as we get closer. This is the ENTIRE community's gift to our students to help give them a fun, safe alternative to risky behavior associated with prom night! No fee is charged to the students and they don't have to attend prom to go to after prom. PLEASE HELP!
 
Contact Luci McClure to help and if you have regifting items to donate. luci.mcclure@gmail.com  610-529-5597
