*Hueneme High School’s Butterfly Project -Every day, SEVEN children are lost to gun violence. Peer Resource wants to acknowledge those children, and based on the Houston Holocaust Museum’s Butterfly Project of collecting 1.5 million handmade butterflies (to represent the 1.5 million children lost during the Holocaust), we have started a school-wide project of collecting handmade butterflies to represent the amount of children that will be lost to gun violence during the 2014-2015 school year. We are asking everyone at Hueneme High School to help us with this project. Our goal is to collect 2,072 butterflies by March 20, so that we can present the school with the project in a case to display in the office on April 24, the national day to remember children to gun violence. The butterflies should be no larger than 2” x 2”. Make them as decorative as you would like to. We would like everyone to participate!

*Faculty – Grad Nite Thursday June 4

  • We leave HHS at about 7pm on Thursday.
  • We have the special “early admission” package, and all seniors and chaperones get unlimited use of the park until the rest of the other schools arrive around 11:00-midnight …
  • *AND* there is a barbecue buffet until about 1:00am for the chaperones.  After that, the buffet turns into a continental breakfast with coffee, bagels, donuts, etc.

*Your commitment is TWO HOURS at the chaperone station; someone from our school needs to be on hand at all times to handle any emergencies or “situations” from our students as they arise …

*There are 16 spots available; then we’ll start a “waiting list” for those still interested.

*Please inform Miss Holiday Buen  if you’re interested in joining the fun!  Keep in mind … it is up to you to handle your sub requests for Friday if you think you’ll need one.  You might want to get clearance with admin *just in case* … but once you’re past that hump, grad nite is a pretty rockin’ evening 🙂  And if you have to brave Friday on no sleep, you just have to remember to pack a toothbrush!
