Grad Nite is Thursday, June 15th from 10pm to Friday, June 16th , 5am in the Big Gym
Wilson High School is one of the few schools in the area whose GRAD NITE celebration is 100% our own. We’re not renting out a hotel or big party room that none of the kids have ever been to, we’re not shipping them off to Knott’s Berry Farm or to Disneyland for a generic celebration that hundreds of other schools in the area can and do duplicate. We transform their educational home for the last 4 years into a fitting, star-studded send off and thank you. The Wilson High School seniors are the stars at the party and they are treated as such.
There’s a wall full of photos of the kids from kindergarten through middle school – There’s a magnificent array of food and beverage options – There’s dancing, there are card tables, video games, rock walls to climb and a sense of senior camaraderie that is all the more powerful because it is the last time the Seniors will gather together at the school they’ve shared for the last 4 years. Tickets are on sale at the Banker’s window beginning August 18th for $80 and go up to $85 on February 3rd. On May 11th tickets are $95. and $110 at the door. This is a great event, you do not want to miss it!
