GRADUATION SPECIAL NEEDS SEATING AND/OR PARKING
 
Requests for seating for those with special needs is online.  Please click here to register. The deadline to submit your request is Friday, May 10th. Requests received after that date may not be accommodated.
 
Seating: Those who have reserved special needs seating will sit in chairs on the main floor of the gym. One able-bodied family member must sit with that person. Additional guests will not have reserved seating. There are a few spaces along the bleachers for wheelchairs; once those spaces are reserved additional wheelchairs will be placed at the back of the gym. Seats will be held until 6:45 p.m.
 
Parking: There is limited accessible parking in the Quad. You need to submit a request for reserved parking even if you don't need special needs seating. Accessible parking is limited so we give priority to those using wheelchairs. Please note that a Washington State issued parking pass does not guarantee reserved parking.

Special Needs Tickets: Tickets for guests with special needs and one able-bodied companion will have a special stamp on the back. Each stamped ticket indicates one reserved seat in the special needs section. When you receive your graduation tickets on May 20th, please check to make sure that the correct number of tickets are stamped. The letter enclosed with the tickets will also let you know if we are able to reserve a parking space for your guest, as well as a confirmation regarding wheelchair needs.

SENIOR PROM 
- Saturday, May 18 - 6:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.
The Fremont Foundry, 154 N 35th St, Seattle

Details: Prom is a formal dinner dance, with the meal provided by Pacific Northwest Caterers. The class has chosen a menu of street tacos and fajitas. Students traditionally wear suits, tuxedos or long gowns. Because parking at this venue is very limited, we recommend that students not drive themselves. We urge students to use one of the local rideshare services: Uber, Lyft, taxi, or limo. Students attending Prom must be in the dance no later than 6:30 p.m., which is when dinner will be served. No one will be allowed to leave before 10:00 p.m.

Tickets and Guests: Tickets go on sale May 6th, and students can purchase them from Mr. Grasseschi in Room 204. Tickets are $70 for BBHS students and $80 for non-BBHS guests. Financial aid is available for Bishop Blanchet seniors by contacting Mr. Grasseschi. Students who are planning to bring a guest who does not attend BBHS must complete a Guest Pass Request Form prior to purchasing tickets. 

Questions: Please contact Senior Class Advisor Mr. Chris Grasseschi at cgrasseschi@bishopblanchet.org.

Volunteer! We could use your help to make this year's Prom extra special. Please click here to find opportunities to volunteer.
