Prom is set for May 4. It’s an event where seniors gather together to eat, dance, and celebrate the end of their high school years. This year, prom will be held at the Sequoyah Country Club in Oakland, which fits in with the theme of “enchanted gardens.”
As prom is coming up, students are applying to be prom royalty and prom hosts and hostesses. Prom host applications were due March 11 and the prom committee list was posted outside room 239 on March 12.
“Prom hosts and hostesses are a team of underclassmen who help with preparing and making prom decorations,” said Iris Cheung, a member of the senior board.
Prom royalty is similar to homecoming royalty, but it’s only for seniors. Any senior who plans on going to prom can run. Five people will win places in the Royal Court and will be presented on prom night.
“Seniors don’t need a date to go to prom and there is no dress code except for the usual formal attire,” said Cheung.
Prom tickets will be sold in the commons starting a month prior to prom. Ticket prices will begin as low as $65 and will rise to $100 for later purchases.
“Last year, prom was amazing but I heard kids were talking about how the music could have been better,” said English teacher Grace Bigler.
