Saturday, April 28, is the date for prom 2018. The doors open at 8 P.M., then the coronation will begin at 11 P.M. Juniors and seniors are the only classes that can attend prom, but they can ask a freshman or sophomore.
Traditionally, when you attend prom, you do something special first, like going out to eat or taking pictures. So, the juniors and seniors were asked this year what their plans consisted of. A majority of the students said they will be taking a party bus to The Cheesecake Factory, going to a nice dinner in St. Louis, and going to Chesterfield to eat at Charlie Gittos. They also said they will take pictures somewhere.
Diana Ribera, junior, responded with, “It may seem weird, but Alex Trentmann, my date, and I are either going to Red Lobster or Olive Garden and having a double date with my parents. I wanted this year to be simple and it was a cute idea. My mom also thought it was cute.”
Emma Engelbrecht, senior, also said, “I believe we are going out to eat and taking pictures and then we will probably go to someone's house to kill time.”
When Grace Soete, junior, was asked what she is looking most forward to at prom, she commented with, “There aren't many events around here that we can get dressed up for, so I'm excited to wear a pretty dress and get my hair and makeup done.”
Senior Natalie Hoerstkamp said, “I am looking forward to hanging out with my closest friends and showing off my dress.”
Junior Joseph Rethemeyer plans on going home and going to bed after prom. Junior Alex Trentmann also said that he is going to hang out with his girlfriend before going home, after prom.
Liz Hughes, senior, said, “If I could change one thing about prom, it would be that we have our prom at a cool venue in St. Louis.”
Have a fun and safe prom to all who is attending!
