GRAD NIGHT 2020 and 2021!

Grad Night is a chaperoned all-night party for all graduating seniors on the night of graduation. A huge fundraising effort is needed to pay for an evening of games, food, entertainment and prizes for the students. All Senior parents are encouraged to get involved. (Junior parents are also welcome...Great way to get ready for next year's Grad Night!) 2021 Grad Night info coming soon! Email gradnight2021@gmail.com for more information or to get involved.

Visit the Grad Night 2020 website for more information. We are committed to using the funds that we raised towards celebrating and honoring the Class of 2020. We have discussed the possibility of joining efforts with the Class of 2020 to host one big event during the winter break next year, if it comes to that. We have also discussed some funds being set aside towards future reunion. When they have more clarity on the survey and the direction PGCPS wants to go with respect to putting dates on the calendar, we can brainstorm further and formulate a plan.
