          Grad Nite is an all-night drug/alcohol-free celebration for our Graduates at an undisclosed location right after graduation until the next morning. Year-long planning for this event is required to make it a successful night.
          Grad Nite is NOT a DOE-sponsored, school function. Every aspect of the event is planned and coordinated by parent volunteers, and the success or failure of King Kekaulike's GRAD NITE depends solely on the kokua of everyone involved.
