This year’s post-prom planning is in full swing, and festivities are scheduled for Friday, May 11, right after the dance. Our first priority is to make sure that students stay safe and make wonderful memories of their time at GW, and we would appreciate help as we work to make After Prom a success.
Are you in a position to supply your skills/goods at After Prom from 11:00pm until 2:00am? We’re looking for people who specialize in coffee carts, embroidery, caricatures, henna art, crafting, ceramics, and any other activities or services our students would enjoy. We also appreciate prize donations for the raffle, like gift cards and college dorm supplies. If you can’t donate a prize, we’re always grateful for the financial donations that keep After Prom free for all students – any amount helps! To learn more about how you can contribute to this GW tradition, email Ali Foster (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thank you!
Seniors, are you interested in giving a speech at graduation? Interviews for graduation speeches will be Wednesday, April 25 in the School Engagement Office, Room 105A. Sign up for an interview time online using the form HERE. You can reach out to Ms. Richason if you have questions.
Anderson Studio will be visiting George one last time for Cap and Gown pictures on Friday, March 16.

Seniors – if you plan to attend college, you should be working on applying for institutional scholarships. These are scholarships offered by your colleges to incoming students. You can visit the Future Center for assistance at any time, but on Thursday, February 15, the Future Center will have extra volunteers present to help students complete institutional scholarship applications. Make sure to stop by!
