The theme this year is Cinco de Mayo so make sure you gather your groups! The JUNIORS are to wear casual attire and the SENIORS are to wear formal attire. Don’t miss out on participating in this fun event with your classmates.  The Fashion Show is put on by PTO as a fundraiser to make Afterprom the best it can be. The money raised is used to provide food, make decorations, and fund entertainment, like a hypnotist as an example! Afterprom is important because it provides a safe, secure place for students to be, since Prom night is one of the most dangerous nights of the year” says Gabrielle Powell, junior.  If you are a junior or senior and are interested in being a part of the Fashion Show on, sign-ups are Tuesday 3/20, Wednesday 3/21, and Thursday 3/22 in the cafeteria during lunch.   Maximum number of students per group is 20.
