Senior Graduation Celebration in May :  

The end is nearing for our seniors but we have one more event celebrating them- a senior party! We have been given the go-ahead from the district to host a final event for our seniors on May 28th from 7-11pm at Tesla STEM High School. We would like to take this opportunity to celebrate each one of them for all the hard work that they have put in. We will be following all the safety guidelines of the state and the school district for this event and it will be all outside to make it even safer! 

Our evening will start with grab and go burritos from Chipotle to be eaten 6ft apart (your senior can choose not to eat if they are uncomfortable), they will then clean up and mask up and get ready to be entertained by an amazing hypnotist! After that show is over we will have a giant screened movie for them to finish their evening! Oh! There will be tons of prizes to be raffled off that will give them a great start to their summer or next plan in life! Please take a look at the form here and encourage your senior to sign up!  You can still contribute to our fund and all the money goes to paying for this event, prizes and leis for your graduate on graduation day!   We will need a few parents for decorating and running the night, please email Amy at amyr@teslastemptsa.org if you would like to help!

About Senior Events: 

Normally (prior to 2020) we ask senior parents to buy a $200 ticket to the all night event that we host with a company called Grad Nights. However, with the pandemic creating all sorts of complications with gathering for the foreseeable future, we are having to pivot to smaller, more spread out and socially distanced events. We have taken surveys of both the seniors and parents and have a great start to our ideas. These events will be open to all seniors regardless of ability to pay (contact school counselor for discreet scholarship) and hosted based on:

*Money Collected from parents (Via ticket purchases for Senior Events + contribution from the Tesla STEM PTSA budget for Grad Night)

*Mandates set by state and school

*Feedback from students and parents

Some of the activities that we would like to plan based on the above criteria and we are not locked into yet:

January: Drive through cinnamon roll and hot chocolate

February: Online Escape Room 

March- interactive improv comedy battle and maybe another escape room

April- Murder Mystery and another escape room

May- Graduation Party - Movie experience at school but dependent upon mandates at the time.

Please feel free to email either Amy Rice or Lisa Stillwell at gradnight@teslastemptsa.org with questions or suggestions. We are both senior parents and absolutely want these last 6 months to fun and safe!
