Midnight Madness

The volunteers of Midnight Madness and the HSA have been working with CHS administration to devise creative ways to celebrate our seniors this year.  In light of the latest shift in Governor Murphy’s orders, we understand the Superintendent is reviewing options for a potential outdoor in-person graduation event to be held over the summer.  In the meantime, we are proceeding with a number of planned activities, including producing and broadcasting a virtual celebration on June 24th.  Please click here to read the update that was sent on May 29th with the latest information for the Class of 2020.


ATTENTION SENIORS:  VIDEOS & PHOTOS REQUESTED

We’re preparing the video celebration for June 24th at 6pm and we need your help to fill it with the voice and images of the people we’re celebrating…you!  Please click here and fill out all required fields and upload the images and videos as described.

If you have questions, reach out to Ms. Hewitt at chewitt@somsd.k12.nj.us or Mr. Endlich at mendlich@somsd.k12.nj.us.

DEADLINE FOR UPLOADING VIDEOS AND IMAGES IS JUNE 12. Thank you and congratulations!


SENIOR SIGN & T-SHIRT PICKUP

 

LAWN SIGNS AND SENIOR T-SHIRTS

We’ve heard some confusion about the two types of lawn signs available.

Every senior is getting a free personalized lawn sign with their first name on it.  With more than 500 being printed, we are not able to deliver those. They are scheduled to ship from the printer on 5/29, so soon we will announce dates for a drive-thru pickup operation.  Our hope is that those two days will be in early June. Students will be able to pick up their free personalized sign as well as their free senior t-shirt at that time. The dates will be announced ASAP and we will be dividing the class alphabetically by last name to spread distribution out over the two days.

We are selling Senior Salute lawn signs now for $20 each at CHSCougarShop.com, which are not personalized and include free delivery to residences in SOMA.  So for those who don’t have a senior, or want to purchase additional support signs, you can do so through the Cougar Shop.  We hope that everyone in SOMA displays their support and sales are open to anyone.  You can also purchase great Cougar gear online which can be delivered for free with your Senior Salute lawn sign.  All purchases help fund our celebration campaign efforts.

 

FLOCKING

THE FLOCK IS BACK!  Surprise your friends with a flock of colorful flamingos that will magically appear in their front yard, hang out for a few days, and then move one.  Your donation will deliver a flock to any front lawn in SOMA.  Click here to order yours now.

Please note:  We have a limited number of flocks, and in between landings, we need to sanitize the birds, so the flight plans are a little delayed with necessary stopovers this year.  It’s a big undertaking, and it’s all volunteer run. We can’t promise an exact delivery date, but the surprise is half the fun!

 

COUGAR SHOP

The CHS Cougar Shop is back up and running for spring, featuring popular designs in tees, sweats and sweatshirts.  Contactless delivery to your door in SOMA is quick and free and all purchases support our celebration campaign.  Visit CHSCougarShop.com today.

 


Midnight Madness is a 30+ year tradition at CHS and is part of the nationwide substance-free Project Graduation movement.  An all night celebration for graduating seniors, it is held at a secret location from approximately 11 pm – 4 am on the night of graduation.  We raise funds to help bring down the cost for each senior and offer scholarships for any student who needs one.  You can support us by buying merchandise or sending a flock of flamingos.
