Committee finalizes Prom plans

Prom is approaching quickly; and the Prom committee is finalizing details to create an unforgettable evening.

The committee which began working in January is taking care of both larger details and smaller details.
“The past couple of weeks we have been tying up loose ends for the prom; things like dates, times, and venues were secured a long time ago so now we are making sure we have covered the more minor details. We typically meet one or two times per week during PowerHour to make sure we are up-to-date with our advertising and fundraising and to make sure everything is running smoothly,” junior Avah Wallischeck, Prom committee member, said.

Fundraising to bring down the cost of tickets has been important.

“We organized the Valentines Day Grams during the month of February and were able to make quite a bit of money from sales. All of the proceeds from the fundraisers we do will go to reducing the price of tickets to make sure that everyone will be able to afford to go to Prom,” junior Kayla Rice, prom committee member, said.

This year’s committee has made a significant change from last year when it comes to who will be able to attend.
“At the beginning of the semester we received a lot of people coming to us and saying that they were not happy with freshmen being at Prom last year. We eventually came to the decision with the Prom committee that we are not going to allow freshmen at the Prom. When people go to buy tickets they will be allowed to buy tickets for a sophomore if they are planning on going as a couple but no freshmen,” junior Carter Swain, Prom committee member, said.

With Prom rapidly approaching, the committee launches official dates to buy tickets with the cost per tickets coming soon.
“When everyone comes back from Spring Break, we will officially be selling tickets. The first date to buy tickets will be the first week of April. That way people will be able to buy their tickets with enough notice before Prom. We will have a table set up outside of the cafeteria where the Student Council normally sells things available for people to purchase tickets at,” junior Mackenna Martin, Prom committee member, said.

Although planning the Prom, the student committee did not decide the theme.

“Typically, what we have been told about themes, is that the juniors who planned prom last year get to pick the theme for their senior Prom. I think they do this so that it is fair for the people who planned Prom to be able to enjoy their senior prom and get to decide the theme and venue. Last year’s seniors came up with a masquerade ball theme, and we will have the Prom at the Scottish Rite Cathedral in downtown Indianapolis. The venue is very elegant, and I think people will enjoy the decorations and things we have come up with,” junior Emma Gardner, Prom committee member, said.

The student committee has also created flyers, posters, and other digital designs to advertise for the Prom.

“The colors we decided on this year were black and gold for the masquerade ball; the last couple of years the theme has involved blue so we tried to stay away from that this year. In the month of April students can expect to see more updates via posters, Instagram, and flyers. Stay tuned for these updates and watch out for announcements as we continue to finalize and prepare for the Prom,” Wallischeck said.
