Dear Families & Friends of SHS,

Through the last year and a half we have seen two classes from SHS graduate.  The class of 2020 lost out on many of their end of school moments - no prom, no true graduation with their friends and family (and of course no POST-GRAD), and sadly no final days to roam the halls and rule the school.  We thought that was bad.

Then the class of 2021 missed many of the normal senior activities all while wearing a mask and keeping socially distant.  Ultimately, they did get a prom and a beautiful graduation outside at Deerfield Park, but still no true POST-GRAD as many senior classes before had been able to enjoy.

Once again, we are planning for another graduating class while in the midst of a pandemic.  This year though we have HOPE, along with a vaccine, that may just allow us to give the class of 2022 a YEAR TO REMEMBER!!! However, the piggy bank is empty.  We have not been able to fundraise as we normally would, yet we still provided events as best we could (Senior Food Truck Event, Pre-Grad Carnival, Senior Drive-Thru). The Parent Council typically spends close to $18,000 a year on Post-grad and other events!

So here we are simply asking for whatever monetary donation you can provide.  We want to give these kids a normal senior year experience.  However, we don’t want to sell candles, pies or wrapping paper - who has time for that? We simply need our community to reach into their hearts (and pockets) to support our school and our kiddos.

Our goals are simple - raise as much money as we can to sponsor an amazing end-of-year event for the class of 2022 as well as offer support to ALL of our students and faculty.  Can you help us??

Any amount will be greatly appreciated.  We offer the convenience of Cheddar Up/Credit card through this link:

Please also share this email and Cheddar Up link to other family members and friends who might be able to support our SHS students this year!

Checks - made out to SHS Parent Council - can be mailed to SHS, 90 Pleasant View ave, Smithfield, RI, 02917. 

Gift cards would also be appreciated for future fundraising/raffle events!! Anything & everything helps!!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
