Senior Prom and Safe Grad Information for Parents/Guardians
The Senior Prom for the class of 2015 will take place on Friday April 17th, 2015 at the Sheraton Hotel. The cost is $115 per single ticket, which covers both the Prom and Safe Grad events:
6:00-7:00 pm. Meet and Greet in the hotel lobby for students, parents, family, and friends
7:00-9:00 pm. Buffet Dinner and Fun Awards for Level III students, dates, teachers, administrators, and invited guests.
9:00 pm -12:00 am. Prom Dance, including girls and boys choice dances (Parents are welcome to return for the dance portion if they wish.)
12:00am- 6:00am Safe Grad at Gonzaga High School
At approximately 9:00 p.m. after the banquet concludes, parents/guardians are invited to the ballroom for the first two dances. The girls will dance first with a partner of their choice (usually their father/guardian/family member), and then the boys will follow. To facilitate this process, a student seating arrangement chart will be posted outside the ballroom. With over 200 graduates and dates in the room, it may be challenging to locate students, so parents/guardians are advised to stand close to their graduate’s table along the perimeter of the room, so that students can find them quickly and easily.
The Sheraton Hotel has informed us that overnight accommodations will not be available to any student or their date on the night of the Prom and that any student who procures a room will be asked to vacate it.
Should any student have special dietary requirements for the prom, please contact one of the teacher members of the Prom Committee. Their names and e-mail addresses are listed at the end of this message under the contact information.
