PTA Grad Night is a drug, alcohol, tobacco and weapon free, all night celebration for the graduates of Wilson High School. PTA Grad Night begins right after the Commencement Ceremony. The Celebration is a wonderful night of fun activities, prizes, great food, and memories our students will treasure for years to come. The graduates will leave on buses directly from graduation to a secret location. Graduates will be returned to Wilson High School by 6:00am the following morning. Event specifics can change, so keep up-to-date with WHS PTA Grad Night Information on this page.
Please find registration forms in Wilson's main office, or print them out from the link below. Complete and return the completed forms and payment to the locked Grad Night box in the school office or mail to: WHS Grad Night 2017 Committee, 1151 SW Vermont Street, Portland, OR 97219
The Grad Night Committee is selling pies to raise money for the grad night party. We raised roughly $3,700 last year and hope to beat that record this year! Please see the order form. They carry a new “ Specialty Pie” available to us this year which is Pumpkin Chiffon. The prices of the pies are in line with the Willamette Valley Pies that you can also find in local New Seasons and other stores. Stock up on your pies for Thanksgiving and beyond with these fresh-to-frozen, made-to-order pies. These pies are wonderful and contain less sugar than other pies on the market. Print an order form and invite family and coworkers to take part in this huge fundraiser. Forms and money can be turned in to the Grad Night lockbox located in the office. Orders and money are due by October 26th and delivery will be in the afternoon on November 9, time to be determined. If you have further questions, please contact Tiffany Jeffords at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Take a look at the Committee Chair Job Descriptions and sign up to help— we need you to help make a fun and successful senior all-night party! You don't have to be a senior parent to help out!
Admission to the event is $95 until December 15th, 2016. After December 16th, the tickets are $125. It is our goal that all graduates of the Class of 2017 attend this event - requests for scholarships may be made on the Permission to Attend form. We will allow needed scholarships within reason, but strongly urge that you register now, so we can plan our fundraising accordingly.
IMPORTANT: We would like all forms and payment returned by December 15th, 2016.
We will be announcing information on volunteering and fundraising via email and the Daily Bulletin and by email to parents who have filled out the Parent Volunteer form. We ask that parents of all participants volunteer their time and talent at least a little bit. There are many things to accomplish to give our kids the best event possible. Please consider how you can help. There are specific tasks that require someone other than a senior parent, so if you have a junior this year, consider helping us out, then you'll be prepared to do your own party next year!
The main goal is to provide a good time in a safe environment. No harassment of any kind will be tolerated at the event. Portland Public Schools and Wilson PTA Grad Night recognizes the diversity and worth of all individuals and groups and their roles in society. No discrimination or harassment of individuals or groups of age, color, creed, disability, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation will be allowed to occur at the event.
