The 2nd Annual Stargate Flower Fundraiser, March 4th - April 12th

The High School students are selling Mazzotti Farms Patio Pots and Hanging Baskets again this year, to raise money for the parent sponsored After-Prom. After-Prom provides a safe, alcohol and drug-free environment where kids can celebrate their Prom night from 11:00 - 2:00 a.m. A portion of the profits will also go towards general school-wide needs.


They will make great gifts for Mother's Day, teacher appreciation, or to spruce up your yard for springtime! Don’t miss out this year.


Online ordering is available on the website. If you prefer to pay by cash/check, order forms are available to download and print out on the website as well.


Stargate's Second Annual After-Prom Party:

Grab an extra cup of coffee and come volunteer for Stargate's After-Prom Party.  The After-Prom will be Saturday, April 13th from 11pm - 2am at the field house.  Many volunteers will be needed to make this a fun, safe experience for our kids.  Your kid isn't a junior or senior? That's ok. You can still volunteer to see what After-Prom will look like when it's your child's turn.  If the late hours won't work for you, we also need volunteers to set up Friday night and Saturday and for clean up on Sunday. Click here to sign up: Please email with any questions. Thank you!
