    Senior All Nighter – Parents – We’re Looking for You!

    Dear Parents/Guardians of the 2015 Senior Class
    The tradition of celebrating high school graduations has been going on since we ourselves graduated. It has also been a tradition for many years to keep our kids safe the night of graduation with a party, better known as the “Senior All-Nighter”, or “The Grad Night Party”. This is meant to keep our kids out of harms way of unsupervised parties, which we all know can sometimes be tragic the night of graduation.
    With that being said, the Senior class of 2015 needs their parents/guardians to help plan the best “Grad Night Party” yet. So we need your help/ideas whether big or small with planning and moving forward with our “Grad Night Party”.
    Please plan on attending our meeting on Tuesday October 21st, in the Student Commons (cafeteria) at 6:30 p.m.
    Please feel free to call or email me with any questions.
    Thank you for your time,
    Dallas Cartee – Senior Parent
    Headed to San Francisco April 2015!
