Senior Appreciation

2018 Senior Save the Date

Monday, June 4, 4:00 pm and 8:00 pm

Senior Appreciation is a Menlo tradition where the Senior Class plans, produces, and performs two shows highlighting their Menlo experience for the school community.  Get ready for a high-energy, gratitude-filled celebration, with fun, positive humor for all ages and warm moments of thanks.  The show is approximately 75 minutes long, with no intermission.

The 4:00 pm show is for students, faculty, and staff.  There is limited seating for senior families unable to attend the evening show. The 8:00 pm show is for senior families, relatives, and friends, as well as the Menlo community.  The evening show is followed by an after-party with dessert and dancing in the West Gym.  Each senior family can reserve up to four (4) complimentary tickets for the 8:00 pm evening performance by filling out this form.  Additional evening tickets cost $10 each and are available through the Campus Store both in-person and online.  Seating is general admission.

Get involved!  There are many volunteer opportunities leading up to and on the day of the show.  We encourage underclass parents to sign-up for backstage, check-in, and lobby/front of house roles — and get a glimpse of this Menlo tradition for their future seniors.  View and sign up for parent volunteer opportunities here.
