DAVIS GRAD NIGHT - JUNE 10, 2016  9:30PM to 5:00 AM - EMERSON JR. HIGH SCHOOL

ALL NIGHT, SAFE & SOBER FUN FOR 2016 GRADUATES OF DHS, DaVINCI, DSIS & KING HIGH SCHOOLS

 


The rumors are true; a new committee has been formed and planning has begun for our community;'s biggest party.  This year, Kam Stanley, Ona Micke and Maureen Carson have stepped forward to share the helm.  Won't you consider joining them? 

What is Grad Night?

An annual drug and alcohol free graduation celebration for students graduating from the Davis Joint Unified School District.  Grad Night was developed in response to a growing problem of alcohol-related car accidents and deaths involving recent high school graduates.  Grad Night has become a way for the entire community to focus on a project conceived to save the lives of our graduating seniors by providing a fun, safe event.  Davis Grad Night is sponsored, organized and operated by all-volunteer parents with the generous support of the community. Typically 90% of the graduating class attends the event.

Who is responsible for Grad Night?

Grad Night is accomplished through the energy, creativity, time and money of the parents with support from the community. It is a party that we, as parents, give as a parting gift to our graduating children.

Who Attends Grad Night?

Traditionally, 90 to 95 percent of the graduates attend this incredible, fun party held at Emerson Junior High School. Grad Night is a time for the class of 2014 to be together for one last time.  Only Davis graduates can attend Grad Night – no friends from other schools or underclassmen. Grad Night begins after Davis High School graduation on Friday evening and continues until 5:00 a.m. on Saturday morning.

Your contributions are not only welcome and appreciated, but also, greatly needed.  There are many things that we could use as game prizes and raffle prizes. There will be several donation drives.  The first one is  MARCH 1 - 18TH.  We are in need of fun colorful boxers of all sizes for Boxer Bingo.  We also need new or gently used stuffed animals and gift cards valued at $15 to $30 for gas, restaurants, movie theaters, Target, etc.  For a more detailed list of our prizes wish list go to http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0d4caeaa23aa8-2016.  Items can be dropped off at:

How do I become a Grad Night Sponsor?

For decades, the Davis business community has generously supported Grad Night.  Sponsorships are available at 4 levels. For more details:  Become a Sponsor . Your contributions will be used to cover the cost of professional entertainment, games, decorations, and grand prizes for the raffle as well as to provide Grad Night ticket scholarships.

How Can I Get Involved?

We would love to see every parent of every graduating senior  or anyone who has a high school student take part in creating this unforgettable Grad Night.   A party of this magnitude doesn’t just happen … it’s pulled together by legions of volunteer parents, each of whom contribute in some way to make Grad Night a night to remember.

Your willingness to paint, sew, cut, and paste great decorations while renewing old friendships and having fun is all that is required. We also have numerous committees organizing activities, entertainment, decorations and food that you can join.

Please get involved. Together, we can make it an incredible finale to our children’s high school years (and have lots of fun in the process!) Click here to volunteer info@davisgradnight.org

Other questions

I purchased my senior's Grad Night ticket, but I can't find a receipt.  How do I confirm the ticket purchase?

Answer:  Ticket purchases will be confirmed by email to the address  listed on the ticket order form. Questions regarding purchases/confirmations can be directed to ticketsales@davisgradnight.org   

How do I sign up to work at Grad Night?

Answer: We appreciate your offer to work a Grad Night shift.   Thank you!  Please contact info@davisgradnight.org.

Do grads have to stay all night long at Davis Grad Night?
Answer: No, graduates attending Davis Grad Night may leave at any time.  Davis Grad Night is not a "lock-in" event.   Once they leave, however, they may not return to the event.  All graduates sign in upon arrival and sign out upon departing.  A security parent will place a courtesy phone call to parents of any graduate who leaves before 3:30 a.m.  They will be escorted to their car by a security parent and may not re-enter the event.

But I'm Not Creative!
Can you use tape?  That's really all the skill you need; it's no more complicated than wrapping a birthday package! And if decorating isn't your thing, then contact us to find out what fits your interests and your schedule. There are literally hundreds of jobs to fill.

But I Work!
So do nearly all of the volunteers.  The time commitment for Grad Night can be big or small.
If you can give us only an hour of your time, we will appreciate it. It is one of those "school experiences" that you won't want to miss!

It Can Be Very Rewarding
Grad Night is an all-volunteer effort and the last gift our community gives its Seniors before sending them out into the world.  Please take a moment to see what VOLUNTEER POSITIONS are available and how you might be able to lend a hand.
To volunteer or get more information, please contact us: info@davisgradnight.org
