    Senior SPREE

    Ballard High School's Annual Senior All-night Graduation Party

    SPREE 2020!

    Senior SPREE has been a Beaver tradition for nearly 30 years! This is an ALL NIGHT graduation party produced and chaperoned by the PTSA and BHS parents in collaboration with Grad Nights – a professional organization that specializes in making graduation nights fun, memorable and safe.

    Following graduation, seniors have time to celebrate with family before returning to school at 10pm, when the all-night fun begins! Students will board buses and be taken to the first of several locations where they will experience hours of entertainment, food, and prizes. All of the details about the evening’s locations and activities remain a surprise for both fun and safety reasons. Seniors return to school about 5am. Our goal is for EVERY senior to experience this once-in-a-lifetime event!

    Why Senior SPREE? SPREE stands for “Student/Parent Responsible Entertainment Event.” Senior SPREE is an alcohol and drug-free event. It is a safe alternative to student-led graduation parties that often involve these substances.

    We all know that graduation night is an unequaled right of passage for seniors. It is a night to be proud, to celebrate achievements, and to look forward to the future. But celebrating at parties with drugs and alcohol often leads to unintended consequences, leaving some graduating seniors with embarrassing memories at best and, at worst, trouble with the law or physical harm to themselves or others. Ballard has a long tradition of sponsoring a safe, fun and memorable graduation night through Senior SPREE.
