Last week, I pretended to be a 17 year old who had just graduated from high school. I pulled my third all nighter of the week as a chaperone at Disneyland’s Grad Nite.
When I arrived at the LAUSD high school where my roommate teaches history, I immediately noticed two things: seven hundred high school seniors are really freaking loud; and most of the students were dressed in jeans, t-shirts and other casual clothing. The latter struck me as odd because I remember a strict dress code when I went to Grad Nite several years ago.
If you went to Grad Nite after your high school graduation, do you remember having to dress nice (e.g. no jeans, sneakers or t-shirts)?
BTW: I suggest that if given the opportunity, you go along as a chaperone with a friend/significant other who teaches/works at a local high school. Disneyland hooks up the chaperones pretty nice and it’s worth the free trip to the Magic Kingdom (even if you have to hang out with a bunch of kids).
