Prom goers, you and your date must be signed up for the dance and grand march by noon on Friday.  Please see Mrs. Gotschall if you have not yet done this.  The list will be final at noon.

 Prom goers, the public (friends and family members) will NOT be allowed in the gym until the doors are unlocked just before the Grand March is ready to begin around 8:15.  Anyone who is not helping with prom should remain outside the gym until they are invited by staff to enter the gym.  This is necessary in order to make a smooth transition to post banquet activities.  Please share this information with your friends and family, it would be a great help to everyone.

Prom Picture Order Envelopes can be picked up in room 212.  You need to call Studio B for an appointment (not during school hours!) and bring your money the night of prom.  Mrs. Gotschall will NOT collect money for these orders.

All prom committee members and their decorating buddies should pick up their decorating PDs from Mrs. Gotschall ASAP.

 The prom committee will be pre-destined out for decorating on Friday.  Each prom committee member may select one non-committee member to be pre-destined out to help on Friday as well.  ALL committee members should be maintaining at least a C- in all their classes to be pre-destine out for decorating.  Teachers, if you would prefer a student attend class, please feel free to NOT sign their pre-destined for that class.

 Message to ALL Prom goers:  This is a FORMAL event.  EVERY student attending the Prom Banquet, Grand March, or Dance is expected to dress and behave in a manner that reflects the formality of the event.  Students who try to enter Prom who dress or behave inappropriately or in a manner that mocks the event will not be allowed to enter or will be asked to leave.  Let's have a great evening!


Teacher announcements:   All coaches are invited to attend the athletic banquet on Friday April 30.  Please let Mr. Hostert know by April 23 if you and your spouse plan to attend.  The Booster club will pay for your meal if you sign up.   

Please release 7th & 8th grade students during 1st period April 20 & 21 for scoliosis screening when the TA calls for them.  The screening will only take a short time!  Thanks Carolyn G.
