Senior Send-Off

Senior Send-Off

The Darien High School Parent Association (DHSPA) is hosting a fun, safe, inclusive and substance-free celebration for all DHS seniors on Friday May 15, 2020 after the prom. The Senior Send-Off (SSO) is an event filled with food, games, entertainment and raffle prizes. It provides a final opportunity for graduating high school seniors to celebrate with their friends before they head off to internships. All DHS seniors, whether they attend prom or not, are invited to the Senior Send-Off.

There is no required fee for DHS seniors to attend, but we are relying on parent and community donations to make this inaugural celebration not only a success, but also a tradition that will endure for future DHS seniors.  We hope you will consider donating the suggested amount of $150/student; additional contributions are greatly appreciated.
