Welcome to the RRHS Class of 2021 Senior Parents page

As the Parents of the Student Council Officers and the Senior Class Officers, it is our responsibility to plan and execute the After Prom and After Grad activities - and we need your help to make their senior year something special, especially during these extraordinary times!   As you may or may not know, both of these activities help keep our children safe after both prom and graduation, while giving them something fun and memorable to do with their classmates.

AP volunteer opportunities

Governor DeWine’s statement that proms and graduations will go forward has shifted our efforts into high gear to get ready for the After Prom and After Graduation parties which are only weeks away.  Although the school district has yet to announce the date, we are anticipating the Prom will go on as scheduled on Saturday, May 1 with the After Prom to immediately follow at the high school.  

The next few weeks will be very active for us senior parents to finish up the multitude of projects, skits, and plans to make these events truly special for our children.  We will need your help more than ever!  

Can you please help us out both that night and the week leading up to the event?  This is a link to the Sign Up Genius for the volunteering opportunities for the After Prom event:

Please note there are multiple pages for the sign up so take a look at it all.  At this point, please only sign up for one volunteer slot for the event itself.  Even if you can’t help the night of the event, please help with moving materials, decorating the high school in the days leading up to the event, or helping with the tear down.  

Volunteering for that night will put you on a “team” for manning a section of the event (i.e., food, drinks, or other entertainment).  Each team has a leader, and your leader will reach out to you with instructions, like what to wear and bring with you.  It is expected that each volunteer will help with the set-up of the decorations and materials for their team’s station on Friday evening and/or Saturday morning and afternoon, as directed by the leader.  It would also be asked that you would lend a hand with the tear down of your station after the event is over. It is a lot of fun so don’t fret!  

Special Requests for Help:

  • LEADERS- As of the moment of writing this email, we are looking for a few more section leaders- a CASINO BOSS, an ESCAPE ROOM experience designer, the CIRCUS FAREWAY manager, GALOOKS PARTY SUPPLY SHOP leaders, among other key jobs.  If you are interested, sign up and Beth Hickey or Wendy Kelley will reach out with more information.  

  • ENTERTAINERS- We are looking for parents or other family friends with circus-like or musical talents who can volunteer to perform and add to the atmosphere of the event- musicians, jugglers, plate spinners, sleight of hand artists, stilt walkers, or any other cool skill that can add to the dazzle of the event.  We also have many costumes which need lively folks to wear them.  “Entry Way Entertainers” is where you would sign up if you can contribute your time and talents to perform that night.

  • PRIZE DONATIONS- Our seniors are given a reason to stay at the After Prom because of the chance to win fantastic door prizes.  The Door Prize Committee, led by Deb Furry, is in need of donations of prizes and gift cards.  If you can donate or fund a prize, or if you have gift card to donate from a local business, please email us at [email protected].   

  • BEACH SCHOOL PAINTING AND PROJECTS- Many of you have given an evening or two at Beach School and have seen the simple materials become amazing features for the After Prom.  We need more help to get these projects past the finish line! We have expanded the numbers of people who can come each evening, while still following social distancing and other safe practices.  Please sign up to help on a Tuesday or Wednesday night by clicking on this link: Sign Up Genius for Beach School Paint and Projects 

  • MOVERS- We do need a lot of help for the move of all the décor from Beach School to the High School gym on the Tuesday evening before the big event.  We need lots of trucks and dollies to make the move easier and quicker.  The more help we can get the better!  Please volunteer for that as well as the night of the events.    

  • ELECTRICIAN OR LIGHTING DESIGNER- Our décor will look even more amazing with the right lighting scheme.  If you can help out, please sign up and we will be in touch. 

Finally, this year has posed unique challenges for traditional fundraising and at the same time we have incurred additional expenses to ensure the events are as safe as possible and socially distant.  We would really appreciate it if you would consider donating to help fund the expenses of our events.  Perhaps you would like to sponsor a vendor or experience at the After Prom or After Grad?  If so, please email us at [email protected]

If you would prefer just to make a monetary donation, please click on this link: DONATE TO THE RRHS Senior Parents' Activities- After Prom and After Grad
