Kenya wall at HHS BLAST

Thanks to all BLAST Volunteers

A world of thanks to the many, many volunteers who helped to make the 2018 BLAST a success. The 400+ students who spent the night enjoyed a fabulous trip from the US to Ireland … Australia … China … Holland … Italy … France … Greece and Kenya. Yes … all in one night!

Decorations, food, games and prizes were all world-class because of the extraordinary efforts of our volunteers. We can't do this without you!

The After-prom BLAST is …

To keep our kids safe after the senior prom, the PTSA hosts a fabulous overnight event with food, games, music, movies and more. This is not just for parents of seniors. We hope that you will help this year and every year until your son or daughter is a senior. Give us 2 hours or more. The cafe needs help in the weeks before the BLAST as well; watch our page for details starting in October.

What is the BLAST?

The Best and Last of All Senior Times is an HHS & PTSA sponsored event held after the senior prom. When talking to parents and community members we try not to call it a “party.” Google the phrase “prom night tragedy” … that’s why we have a BLAST. It has to be spectacular to be more fun than a 2 a.m. drive to the Poconos or the Jersey shore. Producing a spectacular event year after year takes money and even more volunteers.

The BLAST is open to all seniors, regardless of whether they attend the prom, and any prom guests. As the name implies, it is an opportunity for seniors to celebrate their school years together in a safe, supervised environment.

What do students do at the BLAST?

Kids attending BLAST can choose from:

How is the BLAST funded?

The BLAST is largely funded by large and small fundraising efforts all year long. We request a nominal donation from the families of senior students. We receive donations of cash, goods and services from local businesses. We apply for grant money. And we solicit donations during the community walkthrough that precedes the students’ arrival.
