The Party is ON! - Santa Rosa High School Project Grad is excited to announce that we will be hosting our full-blown Safe and Sober graduation party for all Class of 2022 Seniors. The party will open immediately after graduation and will finish at 3 am. The Project Grad team is purchasing thousands of dollars in prizes, reserving entertainers and food and drink vendors, and planning a special event for your 2022 seniors. Please look for more information, but here are some essential points to keep in mind. Our goal is to keep your child safe on graduation night by providing an engaging and memorable event. Your child will not be able to leave the event early, and we don’t think they will want to with the plans we have in place.
We will follow all COVID guidelines as determined at the event. We ask for your understanding and cooperation as the date draws closer and we better understand what this will entail for our event.
The party will start immediately after graduation (June 3, 8:00 PM to 3:00 AM) on the SRHS campus. Please keep this in mind as you think about family activities on graduation day. Students will not be allowed to enter after 10 pm. Registration packets will be required with ticket purchase (also on the website).
Tickets for the event are required and will go on sale soon for $75. However, we want all students to be able to attend this party, and scholarships will be available. Parents - This event takes a lot of effort, and we will need your help. Please consider helping the night of the party or the workdays leading up to the event. Without your help, this event will not be possible! Your child may not want you to be there, but we do! You may never run into your student during your shift in most cases. Please visit our website to sign-up or to donate.
