* Tickets for the 2014 Davis Grad Night Celebration are still available for purchase online through the Davis Grad Night website at http://groups.dcn.org/davisgradnight/tickets. Scholarship tickets are also available through school counselors. Grad Night gives graduates of all four Davis high schools — Davis, Da Vinci, King and the Davis School for Independent Study — a fun, safe and sober way to celebrate completion of their high school education. For the past 28 years, Davis graduates have been enjoying this event, which includes music, dancing, casino games, outdoor activities, shows and a huge raffle, with plenty of food and refreshments. Nearly 90 percent of graduates attend each year. Tickets are $90, which covers the cost of all activities, food and drinks for the entire evening.

* Also, dig out that kindergarten picture of your senior to be sure they are included in the awesome “Kinder Wall” at Grad Night — send your pictures (copies are OK) with graduate’s names on the back, to: Sandy Langley at 2026 Klee Place, Davis 95618. Please provide a self-addressed, stamped envelope if you would like the photo returned.
