Support the Senior Celebration

Dr. McCoy and Allderdice staff are planning a senior celebration for 2021 graduating Dragons. In addition to this year’s seniors attending school fully remote for most of the year, they have also missed homecoming, athletic games, extracurricular activities, the semi-formal, and prom.  The school is working to make this event on May 27th a memorable celebration for the Class of 2021. 

Allderdice PTO is asking for donations to offset the cost of the event, and as well as purchase prizes.  Please consider supporting our 2021 graduating Dragons by making a special one-time donation today! Transactions are managed securely through Square and you will receive a receipt for your donation.
