Grad Activities

During their final week at Sequoia High School, seniors enjoy a brunch, a BBQ, and a safe-and-sober Grad Night party. These events are paid for by funds raised by the parent-run, PTSA-sponsored Grad Activities committee. The Grad Activities committee is separate from the Class of 2019 student committee, which raises funds for Senior Prom.

Our ticket sales will launch with a 2-day flash sale on Thursday, Nov. 15 and Friday, November 16!  Go to our webstore to purchase your tickets.  Tickets include transportation to/from the event, and food on the cruise.  Note that no physical ticket is needed the night of the event.
