Junior Class decides Prom theme

Author Archives

The Junior Class officers have recently decided on the Orient as the 2009 Junior Prom theme. Fitting nicely with it, they have planned for fortune cookies as this year’s party favor.

“As of now, we are focusing on ordering the party favors,” Junior Class treasurer Deanna Daly said. “We have already decided the message for the fortune cookies (which are this year’s party favor).”

The officers have also begun to plan for the prom after-party at Woodland Bowl.

In the coming weeks, the Junior Class officers will be meeting to finish planning the backgrounds and finishing touches of the prom.

It is scheduled to take place on May 2 by the Carmel Clay fountains off Carmel Drive and Keystone Avenue, according to the Junior Class sponsor Jennifer Williams via email. “Even if you can’t remember anything from high school, you will remember prom,” Williams said.

While sophomores and freshmen are not allowed, the overall layout of the prom will be similar to the homecoming dance. The only difference is that prom is much more formal, according to Daly.

However, the reason why the prom is generally deemed a more memorable experience than Homecoming is in its subtle differences.

“Homecoming is much more casual than prom.  Even though couples go out to dinner and then go to Homecoming, prom is more exciting.  I think part of it is because students plan the prom; the PTO plans Homecoming.  When there are more students involved, the more exciting it becomes,” Williams said.
