Prom: A Black Tie Event
by Baylee Percell
Prom 2017 is just around the corner!
Prom is going to be held on Saturday, April 15, at Garden Near The Green. This year’s theme is Black Tie (meaning a formal evening).
The majority of Rockwell students are beyond excited for the upcoming prom
“I can’t believe it’s already Prom,” said Rockwell sophomore Malia Sellers. “I’m excited to see how the theme goes. It’s going to be a lot of fun!”
Students look forward to dates, but also look forward to spending time with their friends in an atmosphere other than the day-to-day school interactions.
“I’m excited to spend time with my friends,” said Rockwell junior Alexa Camargo.
Student government had a hard time picking the theme of prom this year; it was left up to 11th grade student government members to pick the perfect theme.
“We’ve been ordering decorations, backdrops, and swag for prom court,” said 11th grade Student Government Advisor, Mrs. Petersen. “There are also a few surprises for everyone attending.”
Student government put a lot of time and effort into this Prom. It’s bound to be a great time had by all. Between day dates, dinners, and the culminating event being the Prom itself, there will be something for everyone.
“A group of us are going to Boondocks and Cheesecake Factory for a day date,” said Rockwell sophomore Destiney Johnson. “It’s going to be a great time.”
