Grad Night Party

Grad Night Party, which occurs on the night of graduation on June 12, 2024, is a tradition in many high schools to keep Seniors safe during a night typically rife with drinking and driving. The Class of 2024 PTSA committee organizes a fun, all-night party for Sammamish Seniors.

The event is roughly 10pm to 5am the next morning and is held at a location(s) (kept secret until Seniors arrive). Grad Night Party includes a catered hot dinner and hot breakfast, with drinks (water, soda) available all night long. There are multiple activities to appeal to all different interests and energy levels, with some in the past including dancing with a professional DJ, photo booth, board games, laser tag, and bowling. Seniors are transported via buses to and from Sammamish. 

The value of the Grad Night party is approximately $375. The Class of 2024 PTSA has fundraised for the last four years to reduce ticket prices as much as possible. Our goal is for all Seniors to attend the party; we have scholarship tickets available for students who would like financial support.

Safety is a top priority for the Grad Night Party. The PTSA hires charter buses, a professional event company to organize Grad Night Party, professional security, and Sammamish parents also serve as chaperones.
