  1. Pick an evening to have your Senior Sunset and announce it to the senior class via email, mail, announcements, and social media – make sure the students know!
  2. Involve senior class members in the planning – the more students are involved in the planning, the more students will show up to this event.
  3. Purchase or gather yard games
  4. Purchase food and drinks.
    • Consider a sponsorship from a restaurant to keep costs as low as possible.
  5. After school, set up the school green space with the games, food, drinks, and have some music playing.
  6. Enjoy some fun before graduation, and watch the sunset!



  • Have raffles for prizes that every senior may want for their post graduation life – dorm room supplies, gift cards, laptops, etc.
  • Display their Commitment to Graduate® Banner during this event.
  • Partner with local businesses as sponsors to subsidize the cost of food.
  • Bookend the year with a Senior Sunrise (the morning before school starts).
  • Pass out sunglasses as a gift to all seniors.
