2015 Prom is new and improved

As promposals are in full swing, dresses are being bought, tuxes are being rented and plans are being made. Anticipation is high for this year’s prom, which has been moved from its usual Convention Center location to the Palmer Event Center on May 16 from 9 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. With the new upgrade comes a revamped theme as well: Tiffany’s at Twilight.

Tickets went on sale May 4 and are $50 per person. They may be purchased in Denise DeMartino’s room, 321 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. or online here using a credit card. Tickets online can be bought up until 9 p.m. on May 16.

Although some aspects have changed, students are reminded that all of the same rules are to be followed. A junior or senior must purchase tickets, but they may bring a guest from another school or grade. However, freshmen need permission from their AP to attend. A school ID and a photo ID for guests are required in order to enter prom. It’s important that the names on the tickets purchased online match the guest’s name, as they are non-transferable.

“I really liked being able to buy my ticket online because it was so much more convenient for me,” senior Ananya Zachariah said. “It’s great that they’re letting students buy tickets until the moment the dance begins because that way no one will forget to buy their ticket and be unable to attend the dance.”

The most important reminder is that absolutely no alcohol, tobacco or any other drugs are allowed. Students are expected to uphold the student code of conduct and to act responsibly. The administration has reserved the right to make any decisions needed to ensure a safe night.
