To involve and unite parents, teachers, administrators, and students to work together in developing and achieving the educational, social, and personal goals of our student body throughout their years at Cliffside Park High school.
Things you, as a parent, need to know...
but your child(dren) didn't tell you!
Project graduation is a national initiative designed to provide a safe, fun, and supervised night for all graduating seniors.
In 2005, the Cliffside side park high school community experienced a tragedy when a young woman’s life was lost due to a horrific accident on graduation night. Since then, the family along with the Cliffside park and Fairview communities have worked together to avoid the loss of another child on graduation night. The family, Dr. Jorge l. Verea and Lourdes Verea formed the Rebeka Verea Foundation in their daughter’s honor. The mission of the foundation is to educated teens about driving responsibly. To date, the foundation has worked with 27 school districts to provide funding for safe, celebratory festivities on high school graduation night. As a result, the Cliffside park project graduation was initiated and is organized and managed by the high school parents.
Project graduation is an evening where graduating seniors spend one last night together in a fully supervised, alcohol and drug-free gathering, in a secure and undisclosed location. Transportation is provided after the graduation ceremony to the venue and back to the next morning to assure the safety of every single student attending. The evening is funded by money raised through events and fundraising which is only possible with the help of parents and students!
