WHAT IS lhhs ptsa grad nite?

PTSA Grad Nite is an all night event and celebration for our graduating seniors and since 1990 this incredible event has been held on the campus of Laguna Hills High School.  It is an all-night safe and sober event hosted by LHHS parents and administration with added safety of COVID19 safety protocols.  The evening comprises a full roster of events, entertainment, games, prizes, food and beverages. Around the middle of May, a portion of the campus is cordoned off and hidden from view as the Grad Nite committee transforms the space into a high-guarded secret magical venue.

PTSA Grad Nite is created by dozens of volunteers from past and present LHHS families, and from all LHHS grade levels. Freshman, Sophomore and Junior parents are encouraged to get involved as this event is a gift to the senior class from ALL members of the LHHS community.  Our approach of ONE TOWN - ONE TEAM, we can make this a great success and continue the 31 year tradition of PTSA Grad Nite on our compass.  With everyone helping out on a small level, the cumulative effect adds up to an unforgettable experience for our Graduates!

The PTSA Grad Nite committee operates its own budget under the auspices of the LHHS PTSA.  Approximately 30% of the budget is covered by ticket sales, the other amount is funded by donations.  The fundraising team normally gets a full year of fundraising efforts. We are grateful for all the community support we have received as without it, our Seniors would not be able to have the celebration they very much deserve!
