Everything SafeGrad 2023

What is Safe Grad?


  • SafeGrad is an extravaganza for the graduating Seniors the night of graduation. It creates lasting memories as they celebrate with all their classmates for one last time. It is  truly a special night that every one of our kids will eventually experience.


  • The philosophy is to provide the students an event that is safe, sober and incredibly fun!


  • Event traditionally takes place at the school. The area is transformed into an amazing, substance-free, chaperoned celebration.


  • This celebration will only succeed with the commitment and support of parents and the community. 


  • To volunteer, you DO NOT have to be a Senior parent. We had many parents last year that were not Senior parents and they were essential in helping our night be a complete success. SafeGrad is open to ALL parents and it is especially critical to have parents of other classes volunteer the night of the party so that Senior parents can enjoy graduation. (We look at this as paying it forward)


  • It’s a great way to get out and meet other parents.



  • To have a successful party, we need to have a lot of fundraisers.


  • We have many committees and they all need help. If you are interested in getting involved and finding out more about the event and how you can help, please email hallsafegrad2023@gmail.com.


There will be a kickoff meeting open to ALL on Wednesday, September 28th.
