    Senior SPREE
    has been a Ballard High School tradition for 26 years! - it is an ALL NIGHT graduation party designed by the seniors and hosted, produced, and chaperoned by proud BHS parents and staff in collaboration with a professional graduation company, Grad Nights - a company that specialized in these specific nights. The locations are kept secret to surprise and protect the seniors from all outside interference; however, input from the seniors themselves will help us select the entertainment & activities so they can design the party they want. Our hope is every Senior will attend!  EXAMPLE OF PRIOR SPREE INFO FLYER. The actual cost for this unique event is about $195 per person; however, PTSA fundraising helps to reduce this ticket price and creates scholarships for seniors who could use the support in order to attend. The Student BHS Planners are one of the PTSA fundraising activities; they are available in the office.

    Scholarships are available; please see your school counselor.
