Senior Last Blast Survey - Complete by Dec 15
Senior Last Blast, a night for the graduating seniors to get together on the evening of graduation is a ticketed event, organized by parents of Dunwoody High School. In order to hold the event, we need students to participate and parent volunteers to orchestrate.
To that end, we need to know how many students would be interested in this event AND which parents would be interested in volunteering to assist. If you have an interest in either or both:
- Seniors - please complete the 2024 Senior Last Blast Interest Survey
- Parents of all students - please complete 2024 Senior Last Blast Parent Volunteer Interest Survey In prior years, current Junior (rising Senior) parents volunteer to manage the event….”pay it forward” philosophy, as Senior parents may be busy during this time. As this event is 100% parent-led, the venue, activities and hours can be determined by the parent volunteers.
The cost for this event ranged between $60-$85 in prior years but could be lower, based on the venue. Once we have the number of students interested and parent volunteers, we will determine if we have enough interest to move forward. Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey.

Advertise in the Yearbook
Want to reach a potential audience of nearly 2000 students, nearly 200 faculty and staff members, plus countless members of the community? Advertise in the yearbook!!! To begin the process, visit JOSTENS.COM, choose Dunwoody High as your school, and click “Yearbook Ads” under “Show Your Wildcats Pride.” Then select “Business Ad.”
Each yearbook costs more than $100 to make, and we heavily rely upon ad sales to try to make each yearbook more affordable than it would be without the funds from ads. Investing in a Dunwoody Yearbook ad not only builds toward that goal for all but also provides your business/organization/etc. with valuable exposure to the community!
