Prom has an unusual twist this year. While looking through different venue options, the junior class officers decided to explore something new.
“We had all the venue options, but we thought the fitness center was something new and because it’s never been hosted there before it’s going to be a different take,” junior class president Emily Hayes said.
Once our facility is fully decorated, it will not make it seem much different from a normal prom.
“We have a DJ who’s bringing all his stuff, we’re going to use its space to its full potential like using the stairs as a big entrance, planning on doing something like valet parking so it’s like a higher tier than just being at school,” Emily said.
Prom will be in the upper level of the fitness center on Saturday, May 14. Bids will go on sale after spring break for $25 for a single and $40 for a couple. This is less expensive than it has been in recent years.
Many students may at first be unhappy with the circumstances surrounding prom this year, but with the decorations, the fitness center may surprise you.
“No one sees the vision that we do like we went and we visited,” Emily said. “I was against it at first too, but it has a lot of good potential. I think with decorations, because we have a high budget for decorations, it’s going to look really good.”
You might be surprised at the amount of people who like the idea of prom being held in the fitness center.
“I think it will be nice that it will be at our school, kind of like a last hurrah with my friends at Delta,” senior Heddie Heintzelman said.
This new idea is different from past proms, but once you see the same vision as our junior class officers it may change your mind.
