Seniors at KHS may have noticed the After Grad Party list of rules KHS posted on Twitter earlier this week, but are you curious to hear more about the event and its history? Here are five fast facts about the After Grad Party according to Dr. Michael Havener, KHS Principal.

  1. The party has been around for a long time: Havener said he believes the After Grad Party has been a tradition at KHS for at least 25 years now.
  2. It’s been hosted at many venues: According to Havener, the After Grad Party was hosted at Webster University and The Lodge Des Peres before it came to the Dr. David Holley Assembly Hall where it will take place this year.
  3. The pool was too cool for school: In previous years the event took place at Webster University and The Lodge Des Peres because KHS used to include the pool in the list of activities. But, according to Havener, students didn’t want to use the pool so even though there is a pool at KHS, it will not be open for the event.
  4. Where they get the dough: Starting freshman years KHS PPO begins fundraising for their After Grad Party. The major fundraiser for the event is trivia night hosted junior year. Havener said all credit for the party should go to the parents who work to make it happen.
  5. The party used to rock and roll all night: According to Havener when he first taught at KHS, the party lasted until 7 a.m. He said that much time was excessive so now it goes until 3:30 a.m.

Havener encourages seniors to attend and says it will be an exciting and safe event.

“We want to make sure that we have a fun party atmosphere,” Havener said. “A safe, fun, party atmosphere.”

KHS PPO posted this list of guidelines and rules for the After Grad Party on Twitter Wednesday, May 1.
