Help Graduating Seniors with Graduation Expenses!


The Committee for Supporting Seniors will ensure all graduating seniors have the opportunity to fully participate in every aspect of the senior year experience regardless of cost. Senior families have previously paid approximately $250-$300 for senior dues, prom, yearbook, senior trip and the all night graduation celebration. We at Marshall believe every Senior student should be able to enjoy all of the perks of being a Senior regardless of their financial situation.


The GCM team will distribute funds as needed to help with these expenses (note that Senior dues are a requirement to graduate). We expect to assist 75+ seniors from the Class of 2024 and, to date, have provided 15 yearbooks and 19 prom tickets. The senior class trip will be the single most expensive event we subsidize at a cost of $100 per student.


We would love your support for this vital project. If you are inclined to donate to this important cause, there are several ways to contribute:

* Donate via via MemberHub


* Donate via Venmo - @GCMPTSA "Senior Support" in comments


If your Senior student needs support, please contact the GCM school social worker or their school counselor.


On behalf of the PTSA, our Marshall staff, and our most-deserving Marshall Seniors, thank you!
