Project Graduation May End Since Parents Need To Work

February 22, 2013


Project Graduation was nearly kaput this coming school year due to the BOE’s insensitivity to end school on a Wednesday! This new heartless BOE has shown themselves not to be ‘one of us’ by switching things around and not even consulting possible adult chaperones to see if Project Graduation, that revered institution to let high school seniors have a safe night of partying, would impact their personal lives! With school ending on Friday, those 10 to 12 parents who chaperone would be able to sleep on Saturday and even though it would affect their weekends with their families at least they wouldn’t have to sacrifice those all-important vacation days by taking off from work to look out for the safety our Roselle Park’s most precious commodity: its kids.

Mom & dad it’s time to stand up for what’s important and put a stop to the madness!

Even those who don’t believe in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ helped to move the calendar to a Friday by making a stink about their holidays not being observed this year when in the past they were obliging by sacrificing their first day of Rosh Hashanah in 2011 and letting school close on the second day of their ‘holiday’ even though their first day is most important. They were thoughtful enough to not have school closed on Thursday and have kids come back on Friday because there was no way they were going to get both days off for their ‘faith’ since that might change the closing of school from Friday to a Monday.

Not to worry about next year because we’ve been told PTAs are combing over other religions to see which ones could be used to the advantage of Project Graduation. They include Santeria, Scientology, and Vodoun.

“I’m sure we can come up with something to have the BOE do what we want. Heck, we used one religion to make sure the Board would look anti-Semitic if they complained about having school end on any day other than Friday,” said a member of the audience that night which joined to use religion for contract negotiation leverage and having school close on Friday, “We even used other school districts to so we want to be just like them since they close on certain Jewish holidays.”

When asked about almost every other high school in the county having their Project Graduations on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, a rep for the PTAs said, “We don’t need to be like all the other schools. We’re Roselle Park.”

After the calendar was saved by having school close on Friday for 2013-2014, the same rep for the PTSA danced in joy and made a final statement, saying, “Look, we know that 2,000 students and their families and vacations are being affected by not closing school as early as possible and we know that those 100 or so kids that take part in Project Graduation don’t really care when the last day of school is but we know that those 10 or so chaperones should save their days off from work for something important other than staying up all night and watch over the graduates. I mean, in the end, it’s really all about the kids!”
