PGP theme is unveiled

One of Wilton’s most closely guarded secrets was revealed this week, when the class of 2013 learned the theme of their upcoming Post Graduation Party (PGP): “Ready, Set … Game On!”

Students learned the theme when, upon returning home from school last Monday, they found  a personalized invitation had been hand-delivered to their homes. Prior to that, a series of clues had been displayed around town, giving hints about the theme.

“Ready, Set … Game On” will be brought to life at the PGP event, Saturday, June 22, at Middlebrook School.  Members of the community are invited to get a sneak peek at the “PGP Walkthrough” that afternoon from 2 to 4, and from 6 to 8. No one under the age of 18, pets, or cameras are permitted to attend the walkthrough.

With just over a week to go, parent volunteers are hard at work finalizing plans and preparing to transform Middlebrook. PGP co-chairs Susan Lash and Eileen Schneidman are close-lipped about what those plans include, but each is convinced that PGP 2013 will be a night students will never forget.

“I definitely sense a vibe among the students,” Ms. Lash said. “They have been hearing about PGP since they were in middle school, and now it is their year, the theme has been revealed, and they are pretty psyched.”

PGP is a graduation night tradition in Wilton. Senior class parents join forces to donate talents and resources to give their students a graduation night gift they will never forget. At the same time, students are provided a safe venue in which to celebrate their milestone.

“PGP is one of the best things about Wilton,” said Ms. Schneidman. “It really is a chance for our entire community to come together and show these kids how much we care for them, and to throw them an unforgettable party too.”
