Plans are underway for the Annual RHS Post Graduation Party… a safe, fun-filled event that our kids will remember for a lifetime. Historically, over 90% of the graduating class attends the party, and our committee aims to make this year’s celebration the best ever! The RHS Class of 2018 will graduate on June 22 with the Post Grad Party taking place until the wee hours of the morning on June 23.
Through a tragic event that occurred in 1983, the RHS Post Graduation Party was born. Designed to be the most spectacular party of each student’s school history, the Post Grad party is intended to provide a celebratory safe environment for our RHS Grads. Held the night of graduation, this event gets the grads off the roads and into a safe place, while also giving them an opportunity to party the night away. Drug and alcohol-free, this senior-centered event has annually proven to be an awesome experience for all.
Each year the post-graduation committee selects a theme which is kept secret from the graduates. Many parent volunteers from all grade levels work together to plan a spectacular party, which includes auctions, games, DJ, entertainment, food, decorations, and more. The event is held at the Ridgefield Parks and Recreation Center, which is completely transformed for the evening in order to bring our ‘theme’ to life.
There is no charge for seniors to attend, thanks to the hard work of our fundraising committee who secure monetary donations to pay for the cost of the event. However, a large portion of our funding does come from our senior parents, as well as significant funds and auction items from local businesses.
This is an all-night DRUG and ALCOHOL-FREE PARTY, which runs from 10:00 PM until 3:30 AM. This party has one purpose – to provide graduating seniors with a safe place to celebrate their achievement. Activities are planned carefully so that the evening is packed full with fun, encouraging them to remain at the event throughout the night. The party will consist of carnival games, food, swimming, music, and several auction waves in which the students win fabulous prizes with “tiger money” they obtain by participating in various games and entertainment. In addition, each graduate will have a chance to a grand prize such as: a laptop computer or flat panel TV!
