  • Grad Nite June 8, 2021

    In 1990, an ambitious and dedicated group of parents organized the first GRAD NITE at Samohi. It is with honor that this year's Steering Committee continues the tradition. National statistics show that more students are injured and killed in car accidents on their graduation night than any other night of the year. The 2021 Grad Nite volunteers are as dedicated to keeping our seniors safe as was the first committee.

    Thanks to the generous support of people like you, we are now planning our 31st annual Grad Nite celebration at Santa Monica High School.

    Grad Nite is an all night party that will be held at Samohi on June 8 2021, from 9:30 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. The event begins a few hours after the graduation ceremony. Samohi and Olympic graduating seniors are the only students in attendance.

    The Class of 2021 will be sailing on the SS Viking II. They will enter the tennis courts which are tented and decorated to reflect the fantasy destination chosen by this senior class! Inside they dance the night away to a DJ, play carnival games, gamble at casino tables, redeem winnings at a prize booth, and participate in surprise activities with food and beverages provided all night long. At 4:30 a.m. a light breakfast snack is served; the grads receive their diplomas, a bag of goodies, and as the sun rises the Class of 2021 departs after a safe party night!

    You Can Help Grad Nite With Your Generous Donation

    You can help this important community-sponsored effort with a donation of money, gift certificates, merchandise appropriate for our graduates, or by using Amazon Smile when you make purchases. Putting on this party is worth it, but it is only with the help of our community and the support of parents and volunteers that we can create an event that students will remember always.
