WHAT IS GRAD NIGHT
Grad Night is a safe, sober, and fun tradition for all M-A graduating seniors. Everything is provided, including transportation, food, drink, and entertainment!
Is it really safe to let my graduate party until 3:00 a.m?
Yes, if it is the M-A Grad Night party! The graduates will be transported by bus, and there will be adult chaperones and security with them throughout the night. This is a PTA-sponsored Safe & Sober event.
What happens at the party?
The location is secret, and the entertainment is secret. But here is what we can tell you: It's going to be a BLAST and there will be non-stop entertainment for every type of personality, as well as lots of music and food!
Why is Grad Night special?
For many seniors, this will be the last time that they will have a chance to party together. But no matter their backgrounds or their futures, they will be bonded forever through this experience. Grad Night will be their last high school event--an opportunity for them to celebrate their shared accomplishment.
