As of today, over 75 tickets for the Disneyland Grad Nite have been sold. The event, which is scheduled to take place on May 21, is available for eligible seniors only.
“The Grad Nite trip is going to be different this year since we’re going to Disneyland instead of Six Flags Magic Mountain,” Student Council adviser Mrs. Miriya Julian said. “I’m most excited to see how different it’s going to be.”
In order for seniors to make their $25 deposit to the banker, all fines and fees must be paid for. Students who purchased a yearbook must ensure that their remaining balance is $30. The banker will collect deposits until all seats have been reserved.
“Students should come in before or after school or during both lunches to make their deposit,” banker Ms. Lenie Beck said. “I’ve sold over half the seats already and I’m guessing all of the seats will be filled by the end of the school day.”
The full cost of the event is $125 and all payments must be made to the banker. Refunds will not be made for students who can no longer attend the trip since all costs related to the trip are paid for prior to the event.
“I love Disneyland and I think it will be enjoyable to be going on a weekend and not after school,” Class of 2016 adviser Mrs. Laura Penrod said.
Seniors attending the trip must attend school all day the Friday prior to the event and the Monday after the event. Also, all participants must be passing all of their classes. If a student becomes ineligible to attend, their seat will be given to a wait listed senior and no refunds will be made.
“As seniors, we’ve been waiting for graduation for so long and I feel like Disneyland is the perfect way to wrap up the year,” Student Body President Rachel Martinez said. “It’s the land of possibility and it’s the perfect place for us to spend one last night together with all of the seniors.”
A fourth bus may be added to the trip if 60 seniors are wait listed. Personal transportation to and from the park is strictly prohibited.
“Disneyland is the happiest place on Earth so it’s the perfect place for all the seniors to be on Grad Nite,” Class of 2016 President Aliyah Zolett said.
For more information about the event, interested seniors may contact their Class of 2016 adviser Mrs. Laura Penrod.
“I feel like it’s always bittersweet with seniors but I’m happy to see them go on with their future,” Penrod said. “It’s sad to know that this will be the last time they will be together.”
