High school

junior parents
Each year the junior class sponsors Solon High School’s prom. As a part of this event, every junior is required to either work a shift at the concession stand for a home football game or pay $25 in class dues. If a student is unable to work (due to football, band, cheerleading, etc.), a parent, sibling or friend may work the shift in his/her place. Sign up with Mr. Koza in room 106. It is a first come first serve basis so sign up early to ensure a spot. There are two shifts per game. Working the athletic booster concession stand does not meet this requirement.
