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! SPREE INFO FLYER.
The actual cost for this unique event is about $195 per person; however, PTSA fundraising helps to reduce this ticket price (see discounts below) and creates scholarships for seniors who could use the support in order to attend. The Student Planners are one of the PTSA fundraising activities; they are available in the office and Wreath sales in Nov were a SPREE fundraiser too.
Senior SPREE Details: Leave at 10:00 pm from BHS on Monday, June 19, 2017 (night of graduation).
Travel on tour buses to different venues until delivered back to the school parking lot about 5:30 am the next morning for an adult to pick you up (most are too tired to drive themselves) on Tuesday, June 20, 2017.
