6pm to 12am
Traditionally, our Grad Nite event has been held on the night of Graduation, from 10:00pm to 5:00am the next day. This year, in response to several years of feedback from our graduates and their families, we are making a major change to the format. Students and Parents have told us that they value our safe and sober event, but that it is important to have graduates spend graduation night celebrating with their families. Because of this, many seniors choose not to attend Grad Nite and they miss out on this exciting culmination of their high school experience. Other students tell us that staying up all night is hard on them and many students fall asleep in the gym around 3:00am, missing the fun!
In an effort to meet the needs of our current Titan families, this year Grad Nite will take place the night before graduation from 6:00pm to 12:00am. We will produce the same dynamic and fun-filled event with food, games, dancing, prizes and more, but this change will allow more of you to attend, and most importantly, allow all students to celebrate with their families on Graduation day. We are excited about this big change and cant wait to see you all there! Congratulations Class of 2019!

Each student will also receive a Grad Nite T-shirt at the Senior breakfast that will serve as their ticket into the event. Our Ticket Sales Chair is Ginger Couvrette.

Grad Nite needs volunteers to help staff our carnival games, food court, prize mall, security, casino, and general support! Grad Nite is NOT just for senior parents—we need help from parents of all students, especially those of underclassmen who can carry on the Grad Nite tradition in future years. It is an amazing night —come share in the fun of putting on an event where the students clearly have a safe, great time!
