Burlington High School Post Graduation Party

The Post Grad party for the class of 2018 was held Sunday night June 3rd at Kings in
Burlington. Kings has hosted the graduates the last four years and once again it was a huge
success. Kings General Manager Michael Belley and his staff did an amazing job.

We had 190 graduating seniors in attendance and many wore their 2018 Red Devil T-Shirt that
they received at post-grad party registration. Each year BHS art teacher, Keith Mistler has his
senior students create and submit potential logos for the graduation T-Shirt. Only one logo is
chosen. This year, student Kosta Stamides, designed the T-Shirt logo. The Burlington Chamber
of Commerce along with the following T-Shirt donors make it possible to purchase and print up
a T-Shirt for every graduating senior. An amazing keepsake!

The T-Shirt Sponsors are as follows:

3rd Ave Burlington
The Gutierrez Company
Riemer Braunstein
Burlington AFC (American Family Care urgent care)
Burlington Fitness Together
Cambridge Savings bank
Remax (Realty Experts)
Lahey Hospital and Medical Center
Exit Realty
Winbrook PROMO

Students were able to check in to Kings between 10:00 pm - 11:00 pm Sunday night. When
they arrived DJ Greg Gervais from Curtis Knight Entertainment already had the tunes cranking.
DJ Greg did an amazing job and many of the graduates were still dancing at 5 am. They were
also able to enjoy time with classmates and friends as they bowled, played pool and video

At 11:30 pm Hypnotist Frank Santos Jr. began his show. This is always a highlight of the night.
Frank does a phenomenal job of hypnotizing a group, as their classmates watch and laugh in
hysterics. A large photo booth with a wide array of props was provided by Curtis Knight
Entertainment. Many graduates enjoyed the photo booth throughout the entire night. Additional
entertainment was provided by FUN Enterprises, Inc. This included Two Tarot Card Readers,
Two Airbrush Tattoo Artists and an amazing Roving Magician. Graduates lined up throughout
the night to enjoy all of this entertainment.

On staff, we had Registered Nurses, Officer Fournier, Officer Devlin, Principal Mr. Mark
Sullivan, Assistant Principals Deb Deacon, and Rick Sheehan. In addition the Class Advisors
Mrs. DiCroce and Mr. Regan were in attendance, as well as dozens and dozens of parent
volunteers throughout the night.

Chicken Fingers, French Fries, soft drinks, and waters were donated by Kings. Tony Cs
donated trays of Mac and Cheese, Chips and Dip, as well Caesar Salad. Pizzas were donated
byPizza Works, Flatbread, Burlington House of Pizza and Dominoes. Newtowne Grille donated
Loaded Tater Tots, Not Your Average Joe’s donated Bread and Oil and Papa Gino’s donated

With Gift cards donated by Wegmans, Shaw’s and Market Basket we were able to buy ice cream, fruit, muffins, juice, and milk. Desserts were donated by LaCascia's and Roma’s Bakery.
Throughout the night we raffled off gift cards, as well as donations from Xtend Barre and Roots

As each senior left 5:00 am, they were given a gift bag which included a pair of sunglasses that were created by three of the graduating seniors; Coleman Began, Dylan MacKinnon, and Jeff Russo. The name of their company is Against the Grain. The sunglasses were packaged in a unique wooden case that displayed the Burlington High logo. The gift bags also included water bottles donated by the Burlington Education Foundation, accessories from CrossFit Exclamation, as well as coupons for free coffee at True North, free classes to Xtend Barre and discounts at Bed Bath and Beyond.
