Post Prom 2022
Our Goal is 100% Parent Participation!

After a two-year hiatus due to Covid-19, we are thrilled to be planning the Post Prom Party for the Class of 2022! This special event on May 13, 2022 is being organized by senior parent volunteers and will offer food, games, entertainment, music and prizes to both keep kids safe and create a night to remember.

To make the night a success, we rely on the generosity of parents, a dedicated team of senior parent volunteers and corporate sponsors. This year our fundraising goal is 100% parent participation. Check out the Post Prom page to see our progress!
