Believe it or not, it costs more than $20,000 to put on a graduation ceremony for the more than 500 seniors who graduate each year. The district provides absolutely no funding for graduation ceremonies, so it's up to Foothill to foot the bill.
Each senior family is asked to donate $40 to help fund the 2014 graduation ceremony. All donations are tax deductible. Checks may be made to Foothill High School and dropped in the front office.
If you're feeling generous, we'll gladly accept any amount you're willing to donate. We'll also accept donations from non-senior families, local businesses and graduates, so please help us spread the word.
Thank you, in advance, for being so incredibly supportive and helping Foothill fund a graduation ceremony that will be memorable for all graduates, their families and friends.
