NQHS Senior Stay Out is Saving Lives!

Do you love our local artists, crafters, and artisans ?  I do!  Tomorrow, November 30th, the NQHS Senior Stayout (SSO) committee is hosting their annual Holiday Craft Fair to raise funds for the after-prom event they sponsor each year.   Currently, over 50 vendors have registered for the event, and they will be selling their goods from 10am-4pm at North Quincy High School.  I would recommend that you visit the SSO Facebook event page because a ton of folks are posting pictures of their products.  Please click here for more information.

What is Senior Stayout?

Over the last 18 years several dedicated parents have volunteered their time to plan/execute an after prom party in an effort to keep our NQHS students safe.  The party is jam packed with fun activities, and students will find themselves being entertained until 5am!  L0cal businesses also donate a laundry list of prizes, and students need to stick around until 4:30am if they want to be eligible to win any of the prizes.

Silent Auction Preview

The craft fair also boasts a robust list of silent auction items, all of which will see a lot of action.

  • Classic & 2013 World Series Red Sox sports pictures & items
  • Classic Bruins & Patriots sports autographed pictures
  • 2 Night Stay at Ocean Club, So. Yarmouth, MA
  • 2 Lift tickets to Blue Hills
  • Quincy Tutoring SAT Prep Class, $600 value
  • Quincy Tutoring – 10 Hours of tutoring, $400 value
  • Canvas on Demand

May is several months away, which means that there is still time for you to get involved.  If you would like to donate your time/money/product, please contact the SSO committee via email at  You can always find more information on the SSO website.
