Even though prom is a few months away, on January 9, the junior class met and talked about some of the themes for prom. At December's class meeting, Mrs. Borcherding told the junior class that if anybody had a theme idea, they would have to make a slide presentation and then present it during the meeting. The presentation had to have ideas for invitations, entrance, table decorations, floor centerpieces, table centerpiece decorations, and food ideas.
In this article, there won’t be any spoilers on what the students presented since it has been kept a secret from the seniors in past years. The three groups that presented different theme ideas were Elsie McNabb and Diana Ribera, Kamryn Poe and Levi Schroeder, and Joseph Rethemeyer.
Levi was asked how he felt about his slide, and he said, “I thought it was pretty good.”
A few students were asked how they felt about the presentations they saw, and Alex Trentmann said, “The ideas were well thought out and I felt like some ideas could have been combined to make some better, but all together they were good ideas.”
Lexi Oetterer said, “I thought that all the presentations were well thought out and very detailed. Also, I thought that the students that were presenting did a very good job of explaining their ideas.”
Olivia Williams stated, “I thought there were a lot of great ideas. I think whichever idea we choose will be pretty and well put together.”
Many of the ideas presented had simple decorations and were great ideas because they were elegant, simple, and had lights to make everything shine.
Some students were asked how they felt with the decorations, and Grace Soete said, “I think the decorations were simple, but they would work well and make it look pretty. They will also be cost effective.”
Callie Weatherly stated, “The decorations were not fully elaborate because there wasn’t too much to them since we have a budget on them. There were some good ideas but weren’t elaborate enough. I think the class can do more if we put our heads together.”
Kamryn Poe was questioned if she wanted to add anything, and her response was, “I think this year’s prom will go over great. Prom is all about originality to our seniors-- I just want them to have fun, no matter what theme we vote on.”
