Steppin’ Out for Junior Prom in New Town’s Cafe
Sure, being in the 9th and 10th grade can be fun, but everyone knows your last years of high school should be your best!
Once you become a junior, you get introduced to the advantages of being an upper classman; there’s the ring dance and of course, the junior prom! Junior prom should be fun and sassy, and should NOT be in the school cafeteria!
The cafeteria is exceptional for a homecoming dance, or maybe even for the ring dance, but for a prom, I think not! A prom should be a glamorous, fairy tale-like night. There is nothing glamorous about strutting around in a place where all the students eat school lunches every day!
Not saying that we should locate the prom to some expensive gala center, but anywhere would be better than the cafeteria. No matter how much you decorate it, the fact still stands that you’re dancing around a place of chicken patties, cranky old lunch ladies and half working vending machines.
Since it’s too late to change the location of this junior prom, coming up on April 30th, there are a few aspects that will have to be done to spruce up the lunch room. Tasty hors d’oeuvres would be nice, instead of the bags of chips they hand out at homecoming dances. There should be a unique theme that gets the juniors excited for prom. Also, decorations that correspond to the specific theme are needed. A DJ that knows the latest hits, instead of someone who plays songs that came out when we were in sixth grade, would be appreciated.
The junior prom should not be only three hours, considering the fact that most people will want to be fashionably late and we have to keep in mind that the doors will close an hour after the party starts. After the prom is over, there should be a scheduled after party so the students don’t have to go straight home or fret about their plans for later.
The tickets should be reasonable, especially for the people who are bringing a date from an outside school. Then while the couple is at the prom, they will want to take pictures, and those prices should also be reasonable. If our junior prom is going to be held in the cafeteria, the prices should not be ridiculous as if it’s at the White House!
Junior prom will be a night to remember, and we need to make the best of it!
