Immediately following the graduation ceremony at Miller Auditorium on Wednesday, May 25, the graduates will head outside for the traditional cap toss, family gathering, photos, etc. Students should bring a change of clothes to graduation (socks, shoes, comfortable school-appropriate clothing) and will change at Miller Auditorium before boarding the buses. All items (graduation clothing, phones, wallets, purses, car keys, etc) will be sent home with their parents. Everything else they might need will be provided including personal hygiene items in the bathrooms. Substantial food will be available to students throughout the night. NO CELL PHONES will be allowed at Grad Bash. Vaping or use of tobacco products will be an automatic dismissal from the event.
Students will check-in at the buses outside Miller Auditorium between 10:15 PM-10:30 PM. Students will be bussed to the secret Grad Bash Celebration location. Photographs will be taken by Erfan Pirbhai during the event and will be displayed on Wildcat Photography. For all students not wishing to be photographed, please email email@example.com stating your wishes. Graduates will be bussed back to Mattawan for pick up at the Later Elementary between 6:15 AM-6:30 AM on Thursday, May 26.
If any student needs to leave early from the celebration, we must have written permission from a parent or guardian before the event. An email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the parent/guardian’s name and contact number is required. The location of the pick-up will be texted to the parent/guardian on the evening of Grad Bash. Persons picking up the graduate must come inside the location and sign out your student.
