The Project Graduation Parent Team of the Sussex Tech Class of 2015 would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who sponsored our Car and Bike Show last weekend.  Despite the clouds in the sky, thirty two vehicles came out to show their support for our class.  We appreciate this more than words can say.  Thank you to Tony Macerino, who believed this was a good idea from the beginning. Thanks to the Sussex Tech Board of Education, grounds people and staff for approving the event and helping with manpower.

The faculty who stepped up to help out and the parents who worked tirelessly to get this off the ground, have our undying gratitude. The students who showed up to set up, run errands, clean up and everything else we needed them to do, are simply the best. The vendors who gave up a day to spend with us, Geiger Tool, Tara Downey of Premier Jewelry, Rider Ed, and Dave’s Decals, we thank you as well.

We look forward to working with this community of people again. They have recognized a common goal and worked together to build something beyond the money we have earned.  It is our hope that all groups can learn from this example of teamwork between school, parents and community members to create a good thing for our children.
