The Class of 2018 has a busy year ahead of them, and already has a variety of ideas for the upcoming year.
The junior class is already focused on raising money for their class, mainly through fundraisers. The junior class is also responsible for selling concessions at home football games to raise money. On top of concessions, the juniors hope to sell generic Cherry Hill East blankets, as well as provide entertainment, such as face painting, to younger game attendees.
“For our football games, we’re currently looking at many activities,” said junior class President Jonathan Calabrese (‘18). “We’re gonna order a moon bounce and henna activities…so that everyone has a good time.”
The Junior Prom will be held at the Merion on Friday, April 28 from 7:00 P.M. to 10:00 P.M. Planning for Senior Prom will also be underway this year.
Money to lower prom tickets will be raised by Student Government members by using a program called “Snap!”. The fundraising program has students send out emails and receive money back. Each member of the class of 2018 SGA has a goal to raise $500. According to Calabrese, other clubs and sport teams at East have used this method of fundraising and found it to be very effective.
“We want to try and get our prom tickets’ [price] lowered because they are currently really expensive for Junior and Senior Prom. We are trying to get a lot of money so it is less financially on people,” said Calabrese.
