DONATE PRIZES – We are looking for prize donations to be raffled throughout the evening as incentives to encourage the students to stay longer at the event. Click HERE if you would like to donate a prize.

PURCHASE A SENIOR BANNER
The Senior Banner Sale is our largest fundraiser of the year. This sale provides personalized congratulatory banners that hang in the school and are sent home in time for graduation. Banners can be purchased at www.varsitygraphics.net/longreach and email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Long Reach PTSA is proud to sponsor our After-Prom party following the Prom at the Main Event. After-Prom offers all our Seniors and Juniors and their Prom guests fun-filled activities in an alcohol/chemical/drug-free setting. You don’t have to attend the Prom to attend the After Prom party. Each year more students choose After-Prom as an alternative to private or hotel parties. We host this celebration because it reduces the likelihood of a tragedy on Prom Night.
IS THERE ANYTHING PARENTS CAN DO?
Yes! DO NOT host a private party at your home the night of the After Prom. Part of what makes After Prom a great event is that all Junior and Senior students attend. Forty-eight American teenagers are killed and 5,202 are injured in vehicular accidents on a typical high school prom weekend in April and May, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. Moreover, 40 percent of the deaths are alcohol-related. If they only knew that approximately 1,000 youth under age 21 die each year in preventable tragedies while celebrating their high school proms and graduations (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration).
A shout out to our community sponsors for After Prom 2019!!
Staff Appreciation Week – May 6 – May 10:
Please help the PTSA celebrate our wonderful Long Reach Staff by participating in a new program called Gift Of Thanks. This program provides a convenient way for you to express your gratitude to the dedicated staff at LR.
Simply check off which staff you would like to donate to, and how much you would like to give (minimum $1). Each contributing family is recognized on a certificate by name only, not amount given. Your monetary contributions are pooled for each staff member and converted into gift cards that they select. Participation is voluntary, and the intent is to simplify end of year gift giving. The deadline is May 2. Fliers will be sent home with students, or you can access the order forms HERE.
We are also asking for food donations for Staff Appreciation Week. Please click HERE for the Signup Genius link.
