Prom - it's the most magical dance of the school year, and the theme and the venue fit into the magical criteria for sure.
2017’s theme is “All About Us.” This was chosen by the junior student council members.
Sarah Whitehead, who is on this year’s prom committee, said, “We worked hard to find a song that all the student body would like and we found 'All About Us'. The song just encapsulates the whole essence of the dance we were looking for.”
Prom will be held at the Sleepy Ridge Golf Course on April 15th.
“Booking Sleepy Ridge was a no-brainer. It is such a beautiful place and I’m so excited for you guys to see all that we have prepared,” Robbie Millard said.
Sleepy Ridge is a castle-like venue in Vineyard with beautiful strung lights, plants and an amazing view of the sunset.
The week of prom is “junior week,” and the junior members of student council have planned super fun, spirit-boosting games for the student body such as the Oreo face slide, kitchen kiss unravel, M&M suck and a potato hop.
“It’s been way fun to plan activities that all the students would enjoy participating in.”
The juniors have put much effort into coordinating this dance for the student body, from booking places to hold the dance, to planning events leading up to it, to creating decorations.
“I have enjoyed planning prom because I have been able to work with some of my really good friends. We have put a lot of work and time into this and we are excited to see everybody’s reactions at prom,” Jackson McBride said.
2017’s prom is going to be exquisite and it is definitely not one to miss, so get asking!
