Grad Bash

Grad Bash is a parent-chaperoned, all night post-graduation party held immediately following our Graduation ceremony, this year on Friday June 1.

Transportation, food, entertainment and prizes are provided! The location of the party is kept secret from the students to heighten the level of excitement – think of it as one of those mystery vacations. Historically, Grad Bash has been a huge success, thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated by the students.

While there will be many graduation parties throughout the weeks following graduation, this event is unique in bringing together the entire graduating class, for probably the last time since some will depart for school or other adult life opportunities during the summer. It is our goal to help our graduates capture all that “last day ever [high school]” energy and enthusiasm by providing them a fun, safe venue to celebrate, relax and have a genuinely good time.

The chairpersons for the 2018 Grad Bash are Leslie Nowaczyk and Karen Hecht.


Meetings will be held at 7pm in the Media Center on these dates:

Monday Feb 12
Tuesday March 13
Wednesday April 11


Please consider volunteering to chaperone Grad Bash 2018. We need parents willing to load kids onto the buses after the Graduation ceremony, ride the buses with them and attend as chaperones at the party venue (and we promise – it’s NOT Craig’s Cruisers). This is a great way to really contribute and be a part of the last event for the Class of 2018. Contact Teresa Fernandez for volunteering details.


Tickets are on sale April 16-20 for $50.  After April 20, the ticket price will go to $60.  They can be purchased in the lower commons during both lunches with cash or check made to “PN Grad Bash”.  There is a signup/waiver form that must accompany payment in order to sign up for the buses.  This will arrive with a Senior Mailing in early April.


If you are unable to assist in any other way, we are accepting financial donations. You can very conveniently donate online at Paypal.

Donations of all sizes are welcome; these cash donations help keep Grad Bash affordable for all seniors.  You may make your tax-deductible check payable to Portage Northern Parents/Grad Bash and mail it to PNHS 1000 Idaho, Portage MI 49024, ATTN: Grad Bash.
