Information and Announcements
The After Grad Committee is a committee run by you, the parents and volunteers of Riverside Secondary, with a goal of providing an After Grad event for our 2019 graduates to celebrate their accomplishment with classmates in a safe and substance-free environment.
A lot has been happening behind the scenes in preparation of the After Grad event. We held our first meeting on September 11th, which was super successful—what a great turnout! Thank you to everyone who showed up and has begun to get involved; it's going to be a stellar year for our students thanks to volunteers like you.
If you couldn't make the first meeting, come see us at the next one. You're missing out if you don't. Check the school calendar for meeting dates and this page for regular updates and notices.

Volunteers Needed for Winter Market
You've signed up to be on the email list but what about pitching in? Mary DeSousa and Tanya Grimbeek do a brilliant job every year to make Winter Market a successful event but they can't do it alone. They need volunteers to help out before the event (Advertising, decorations), during (man the entrance tables and food booths) and after (decor removal and cleanup). This is our largest fundraiser of the year. Without it After Grad can't happen. More hands make light work. Please send a quick email if you want to help make this year's Winter Market a winner. You'll be surprised how much fun it is and how much satisfaction you'll get from just a few hours of your time. Contact Deborah at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the volunteer schedule.
Next Meeting Rescheduled to October 16th
Due to school-related events, the date of the next After Grad meeting has been changed from Tuesday, October 9th to Tuesday, October 16th. Please mark this date on your calendar. Let's not lose the momentum of the first meeting; your participation is greatly needed and truly appreciated. October 16th, 7pm in the Library.
If you have any baskets or gifts you would like to donate to the Winter Market raffle, please bring them to the October 16th meeting.
Pass the word around to everyone you know. We need more vendors! Interested vendors contact Mary at email@example.com
