Grad Nite takes place after graduation, beginning at 10 pm and lasting until 5am the following morning. They gym and surrounding areas are transformed into a magical setting depicting the theme. The ticket price admits the graduate to a one-of-a-kind extravaganza of hired entertainment (stage show-illusionist, large inflatable games, caricaturists, fortune telling, souvenir photos, DJ and dancing, hair styles) carnival games, money machine, a casino with blackjack, craps, roulette, amazing prizes, and food and beverages throughout the evening. No other money is needed. Only PHS graduates may attend and they are required to stay the entire evening unless checked out by a parent/guardian. Security will pat-down each student as they enter and all belongings will be stored in a check-in closet. Please encourage your senior to attend by holding your family celebrations earlier in the day of graduation or after graduation day. All parents whose students have purchased tickets and have not shown up by 11pm are called, to ensure that parents know they aren't at Grad Nite and hopefully can be tracked down. We encourage parents to arrange carpools with your neighbors and friends for picking up students at 5am. If working the 2nd shift, students can go home with you! They will be very tired and will be safer being driven home.
