Vegas Night was such a success because of the generosity of our volunteers and donors!!

Again, thank you!

 

A big welcome to the class of 2023 parents!!

The Paraclete Parent Organization (PPO) is comprised of parents who have a student enrolled at Paraclete High School.  Our main function is to raise money to support the educational programs and campus at Paraclete.  The PPO Board meets once a month throughout the school year. You are invited to attend our meetings so you can get involved (and work off your service hours). We meet the first Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm in the library. Check the school calendar for more info!

Vegas Night is intended to raise money for Paraclete, as well as to provide an enjoyable evening for the Paraclete community, family, and friends. Casino games, music, food, raffle prizes, silent auctions, and more, ensure a fun and exciting evening for all who attend!

This year’s 2019 Vegas Night was a great success!!  We had well over 300 people in attendance, and raised money to help purchase much needed items for the school and students. We were able to purchase Apple TV’s for each classroom, a new set of chairs for the chapel and a water/filler station and much more!

 

Vegas Night 2020 will be scheduled in June. We will soon be busy planning to ensure another successful event. However, we will need the support of wonderful volunteers and donors to pull it off again next year. Stay tuned for more information to get involved with one of our committees.

We need your help to make Vegas Night a success again next year and look forward to working with you!!

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Melissa Phoreman

PPO President
