NHS Class of 2012 Has All-Night Grad Party
Marie O'Malley of NHS Parent Advisory Board thanks sponsors, volunteers for help in this letter to the editor.
On Friday, June 8th into the early hours of Saturday, June 9th, 124 graduates of Norton High School Class of 2012 enjoyed a fabulous night to remember at the Attleboro YMCA to cap off their four years together at Norton High School. This event is sponsored by the NHS Parent Advisory Board and requires year-long preparation and fundraising to provide each graduating class a fun and safe opportunity to celebrate their success. The 10th Annual All-Night Grad Party was a tremendous success due to the many family and business sponsorships as well as enthusiastic parent, community, and NHS Staff volunteers. It was an amazing night enjoyed equally by both volunteers and students and on behalf of the NHS Parent Advisory Board and the Class of 2012, we’d like to share a heart-felt expression of gratitude to the many supporters who generously donated time, funds, services, and prizes to make this night possible.
