Parents, grad night will be a memorable experience for your graduate.  It's a fun, and safe event for the grads to celebrate with their whole class for the very last time.  Past year's have said it was the highlight of graduation day.

Don't have your grad miss out. 

We transport grads to and from the venue from NHS. 

** Volunteers **

Please Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior parents.  We need you!!!  All of the Safe and Sober Grad board members are Senior parents.  We need parents that will take our place next year.  The easiest way to make that happen is have you involved this year, so you can see what we do and take on some of the committee duties.  Without you the money will not be raised for your student's Grad Night Celebration.  Eventually this 30 plus year tradition will fade away.

** Lucky Run/Walk **

Chance to Win Kayaking for 4

Run/Walk will be held on a Sunday March 19th.  This is our big fundraiser, bringing us donations through sponsors and race participation. 

Volunteers:  Our experienced leader Jenelle Dito will lead the event planning, but we need a leader in training as this will be her last year at NHS.

This year's location will be the Novato High campus. There will be a 1 mile stroll around the track and a 5k run/walk starting and ending at the football field.  There will be prizes for the race winners and prize drawings for all registered participants.  Other fun activities for families are also being planned.  More information and the registration link is at the top of this page.

What is Safe and Sober Grad Night?

Grad Night parties have spread throughout the United States. These events are organized by committed groups of parents joining together with the support of the community to give their high school graduates safe, sober, and spectacular graduation celebrations.

The two greatest risk nights for high school students are prom and graduation nights. Peer pressure is highest on these two nights. The philosophy and ideals behind the Grad Night party are interlinked with providing an event that is safe, sober, and incredibly fun. More than “just a party,” Grad Night is a commitment by parents to conduct a great, “once in a lifetime” extravaganza for graduating seniors. Grad Night is alcohol and drug free. It builds a spirit of togetherness among the graduates as they celebrate with old friends for one last time. A sense of community is developed as everyone works to keep the graduates entertained and safe on potentially the most dangerous night of their lives.

Grad Night celebrations can only succeed with the commitment of parents and the generous support of the community.
