We can answer any questions that you may have for us. Also, if you are interested in helping us as a volunteer, you need to be sure to come by and see us. This is an event for our graduates and volunteers are always welcome.

PRESS RELEASE
    

Twenty-five years ago, the Vacaville High School’s graduating class of 1990 became part of a tradition that is still going strong! Through countless hours of hard work, volunteers have kept the Grad Nite tradition alive! What began as an effort to keep recent graduates off the streets following their graduation and giving them an event where they could "party" with their fellow classmates one more time before going their separate ways, Grad Nite has evolved into a highly anticipated event that seniors look forward to attending.

 

Volunteers, along with the generous support of the school administration and the entire community, work all year to put on a party for our graduates the night of graduation as a way of saying, "Thank you for your hard work, and best wishes in the future." We are proud of our students and the diligence they have shown over the previous twelve years in the school system.

 

Grad Nite is often referred to as the Safe and Sober Grad Nite. Intended to offer our graduates a safe and sober environment, the party includes a casino, midway, bounce-house games, raffles, dancing, an endless supply of food, movies, and a myriad of other sources of entertainment. Large prizes can include new bicycles, I-pads, I-pods, laptop computers, cash, gift cards, TVs, tools, and items that a student may need for college or living on his/her own in the future. Not all graduates go on to higher education, but the gifts given at Grad Nite encompass all students. With the purchase of a ticket, (available all year long, but less expensive at the beginning of the school year) attendees are given a T-shirt commemorating the event, with everything else FREE.

 

The first general Grad Nite meeting will be held August 19, 2014, at 7pm in Room #51 at Vacaville High School. All volunteers who attend the meeting will be given Bulldog Bucks, which will be explained during the meeting. Bulldog Bucks is the currency used by the students the night of Grad Nite. Activities throughout the year afford the students an opportunity to earn Bulldog Bucks. Parents and friends may designate any student to be the recipient of the Bucks they earn throughout the year; bucks can also be carried over from one year to another. You do not have to have a student at the school to participate. Families of Freshman, Sophomore and Junior students are especially encouraged to become involved with Grad Nite. Future Grad Nite meetings will be held the third Tuesday of each month, in Room #51 at Vaca High, culminating with graduation, June 6th, 2015. As with any volunteer organization, WE NEED YOUR HELP! Please join us on the 19th, and learn how you can help ensure that our graduates will have that future that they have worked so hard to achieve.

 

Come to our first meeting and see what the past twenty-five years of Grad Nite is all about. Volunteers are what make this program a success. 'Hope to see you the 19th!

What is Coming Next Year?
 
     Soon, Grad Nite will be posting its schedule of events and fundraisers leading to Grad Nite 2015. It will be an exciting year of things going on and events to attend. So, stay tuned to the website and facebook page. And, be sure to share all over your social media. This is such a huge help in getting the word out.
