Getting ready for prom

Thursday, March 26, 2009

We spend years and years wondering what prom will really be like. Will it be what we hoped for? It's our year, the juniors of the 2010 graduating class, to run the show, and we are more than ready. After years of brainstorming and crazy fundraisers, we have designed our perfect image of the romantic prom. With around five thousand dollars saved up, our possibilities are endless.

At first, we had to decide on the overall prom theme. Students who had any ideas could put them forth. With four very different themes, we decided on the one we thought would make the night everything anyone could wish for. We put a little of everyone's personality into our theme. We worked together, and we are more excited than ever to see it in reality.

Next, we had to agree on the name, colors, and main decoration ideas. It truly was great getting to see the creative side of our peers. After going to school with other students for several years, it's good to see we have more things in common than not. Even though we have plenty of money and hard workers, it is still very stressful. We are doing extremely well at working together; we are very proud of one another. Putting a large group of young teens in control of a major event like this, along with the everyday school work, is definitely a big responsibility.

We could not do this without our class sponsor: Brenda Guffey and Larry Brown. Without their strong ambition and support, we would not be in the process of throwing the greatest prom ever.

Right now we are beginning to order the main decorations. Then food and photo arrangements must be set, music picked, souvenirs bought, and t-shirts designed. We have committees where students from the junior class are assigned. We all have a specific amount of money set for spending. One chair holder is a head of each committee, keeping everyone in line and on time.

I don't want to go and ruin the surprise. But just know, when the night comes, it will be unmasked, and memories are sure to be made.
