Fun-filled Grad Night approaches April 20, 2009 — by Aditi Jayaraman As the end of the school year and graduation day approach, parents, seniors and Grad Night Co-Chairs are eagerly anticipating “Grad Night 2009”. As the end of the school year and graduation day approach, parents, seniors and Grad Night Co-Chairs are eagerly anticipating “Grad Night 2009”. As always, Grad Night, an annual tradition sponsored by parents for graduating seniors since 1984, will be full of entertainment, games, prizes, and food. The all-night event will take place on campus, from the evening after graduation on June 11 until 5 am following morning. What initially began purely as a way for graduates to enjoy their night with safe choices has now morphed into something of a greater scale. Although this year’s theme for Grad, as usual, is a secret until the night itself, this year’s GN Chairs – Helen Chang, Jeri Finch, Vasanthi Jayaraman and Charlotte Sparacino – plan for a spectacular night that 2009 Grads won’t want to miss. “The parents are working really hard, and we want to give all the students a truly exciting night to remember,” said Jayaraman. The Senior Video that will be shown at Grad Night, complete with every milestone that the Class of 2009 has experienced, can be ordered in advance through the PTSO website. Bids are currently $225. Students can check the SHS PTSO website or get in touch with Assistant Principal Karen Hyde if they have questions.
