All-Night Graduation Party
Time & Location
About the Event
Dear Parents/Guardians and Masconomet Seniors,
The ALL-NIGHT PARTY, a 50 year tradition for Masconomet graduating seniors, will be held on May 31st, 2019 immediately following graduation ceremonies (see reverse side of this page for details). During this event the seniors will be transported to secret locations for an evening of fun, food and entertainment. Historically, most (90%) of the Senior Class participate in this year-end tradition, which is special because it is the last time the seniors will come together as the Class of 2019!
In order for your senior to attend, you and your graduating Senior need to complete and sign the enclosed Authorization & Waiver and return with a check for $95*, payable & mailed to Tri-Town Council, 7 Grove St, Topsfield, MA 01983 by April 26th. Please register early! A late fee may apply for late registrations.
Also enclosed (in the mailing) are three raffle tickets for your chance to win four ‘Premium’ Graduation Seats. The seats are reserved for the winner and located close to the graduates. For your chance to win, please mail the completed raffle ticket(s) along with payment ($10 each or 3 for $25) along with your waiver form. You may purchase raffle tickets separately from the All-Night Party registration. Proceeds from the raffle ticket sales will support three Tri-Town Council Scholarships for graduating seniors!!
Authorization and Waiver forms and additional raffle tickets are available in the high school office, Tri-Town Council office and on-line at www.tritowncouncil.org

Transportation will be available to bring seniors home if a parent or other rested adult is not available. For safety reasons, no senior will be allowed to drive themselves home (no student vehicles will be allowed to be left in the parking lot overnight). All graduates must have parent/adult pick up arranged for Saturday morning.
DRESS: Graduates should change after graduation into casual clothes and bring a light jacket/sweatshirt appropriate to the night air, wear sneakers/rubber soled shoes for activities and any necessary personal belongings. We will remind them about what they need during Senior Week. After check-in, bags will be left in the small cafeteria where they will be searched for any illegal or inappropriate substances. Spending money is not necessary. Please emphasize the need to pack lightly!! All items are the responsibility of the graduates, including clothing and electronics. Seniors will need to keep track of personal belongings. TTC cannot be responsible for lost/left items though we do inspect all areas, including buses, throughout the event. Remember to collect your senior’s cap/gown/diploma/car keys before they check in!
