* Learn all about Grad Night and how to be a part of this signature end-of-school event on Tuesday, Sept. 24, at 7 p.m., Emerson Junior High School, 2121 Calaveras Ave.
Grad Night is a safe and sober all-night celebratory event for graduating seniors from Davis, Da Vinci and King high schools and the Davis School for Independent Study. It is a tradition that the schools and the larger Davis community have been supporting for more than 25 years.
Grad Night 2014 will be on Friday, June 13, immediately following the DHS commencement ceremony.
It is truly a community effort and is entirely organized by volunteers — mostly parents of high school students. Your student does not need to be a senior for you to volunteer; many folks are needed. Contact Solveig Monson, Grad Night chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
