Members of the Post Prom Fundraising Committee Ask for Help:

On May 27, the Class of 2012 will host its Junior Prom. For the past 16 years, the parents of the Junior Class have sponsored a Post-Prom Party held in the school gym. This is designed to keep students safe after the prom. Each year this event has sent a positive message to our children about a drug and alcohol-free prom night. This is not a school sponsored event. It is solely run and paid for by the Junior Parents. We need your support to make this happen!
