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!

Ticket Sales $140

Partial and Full Scholarship tickets are available

Grad Night Chair:  Paul Welander, Gina Preston, Maria Vegas

The graduation class will meet at the M-A Gym on graduation night and be taken by bus to a surprise location. All students must ride the bus to and from the venue. No exceptions will be made. Buses have no assigned seating. Line up with friends after check-in if you want to try to be on the same bus.  Students will return to M-A by 3:00 am (the next morning). 

Is it really safe to let my graduate party until 3:00 am?

Yes, if it is the M-A Grad Night party! The graduates will be transported by bus, and adult chaperones and security will be 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 first time that they have had a chance to celebrate together. And for many, this will be the last time. But no matter their backgrounds or their futures, they will be bonded forever as the M-A Class of 2024. Grad Night will be their last high school event - an opportunity for them to celebrate their shared accomplishment.

Who else is going?

Our goal is to get the entire M-A class of 2024 to attend grad Night. Last year almost 400 seniors attended Grad Night

What do I wear?

What if I need medication?

After check-in you will need to go to the resolution table and check-in your medication. We will bring your medication to the venue and let you know where you will be able to obtain it during the event. If you have an EpiPen, we immediately give it back to you for the duration of the evening.
