After Prom Final Call

At this time, there doesn't seem to be enough interest in after prom. This event requires a group of adults to organize activities, food, chaperones and solicit donations from outside sources. After prom also requires 25-30 chaperones to run the actual event on May 2. Without the commitment of 25 people by next week, we will not be able to offer an after prom. There will be a final meeting to determine if we will be able to hold an after prom party on Wed. March 11, @ 5:30 in the cafeteria.
