In an effort to prevent graduation-related accidents and mischief, the city of Page is opening up the Sports Complex to offer graduates and their friends a safe, drug- and alcohol-free place to celebrate their graduation.
Project Graduation will be held this Friday night from 8 p.m. to midnight. It’s open to students grades nine through twelve. Admission is free for students with a signed permission slip from their parents.
But students can only be admitted once. If they leave, they won’t be allowed back in.
“The idea is to provide a safe, chaperoned spot for students to celebrate graduation,” said Jackie La New, recreation director for the Page Recreation Department.
Once inside the sports complex, students will find a climbing wall, hamster balls, jousting, inflatables and obstacle courses. They’ll also find organized games of dodgeball, kickball, volleyball and Nerf wars.
Project Graduation will also feature music, free food, water and Gatorade. The food was donated by a number of local businesses.
