This year Prom will be held on May 1 and it is shaping up to be an enjoyable event. The theme this year is ‘a black-tie affair’, “It’s going to be awesome,” stated Student Body Historian Brandi Brooks.
Junior class officers and the Leadership class are in charge of putting on the prom, Junior Class President Luis Gutierez said “putting up the decorations,” is the hardest part of preparing for prom.
The Convention Center doors will open at 8:30 p.m. and the dance will last until 12:30 a.m. However, if you have purchased pictures you can go at 7:45 p.m. to take them ahead of time instead of during the dance.
The royalty crowning ceremony will take place at 11:30 p.m., nominee’s family members will be allowed in but must leave after the crowning. A Prom breakfast is being held immediately after the dance and students who decide to stay will receive a wristband so they will not get in trouble for staying out past curfew.
Tickets will continue to be sold at lunch on April 26 and 30. They will only be sold at lunch; no tickets are sold at the door. Ticket prices are $65.00 for couples and $50.00 for singles. Remember your student I.D. card and your date, couples will only be allowed to enter the dance with the person with whom they purchased their ticket.
