Prom Do you like the idea of a Rain Forest Themed Prom or does the idea of a masquerade sound more fun to you? Are you thinking you’d like prom colors to be purple and yellow or more like black and white? Who do you want to DJ the prom? Dr. Soundsgood or Boom Entertainment and DJ Flipside? If you have an opinion and want to be heard, come to the prom meeting TONIGHT. Juniors interested in helping to plan prom need to attend the prom meetings which are held EVERY Tuesday from 2:30 – 3:30 in Mrs. Brennan’s room A145.
