Prom is Right Around the Corner
Prom: the night that most freshmen look forward to, the night that students make extensive plans for, and the night that is considered one of the most momentous events in any high schooler’s career. We have all seen the magical scenes in teen films, and now it is time for us to actually experience prom.
This year, prom will be held on April 21st at the Bently Reserve Building in San Francisco located at 301 Battery Street from 8 p.m. to 12 p.m. Once doors close one hour after the dance starts, students will not be allowed in and no refunds will be administered.
Unfortunately, the super sale of prom tickets already past, but not to worry tickets are still on sale. You can find them in D-7 during lunch and after school. From April 9th-18th, tickets are $80 for those with PAL stickers and $85 without. The last chance that you can buy tickets is from April 19th to 20th for $90 for everyone. Also keep in mind that non-WHS guests will be charged the non-PAL price. When buying tickets, cash will only be accepted and checks and credit cards will not. Tickets are only sold at school from now until the 20th and not at the door.
Though prom is expensive, there are a couple more rules because it is time to clear your fines and your detentions because students currently on the no privileges are not allowed to purchase prom tickets. In short, clear your fines early, get off the no privileges list, and have a current student I.D. card.
Also remember that juniors and seniors can only purchase tickets, but underclassmen are still allowed to attend if an upperclassman invites them. For those who invited guests, passes are available on the Woodside website under student activities. If you have decided to invite someone from a different school, you must turn the guest pass into your appropriate AVP before purchasing your tickets.
After prom, students must be picked up no later than 12:30 a.m. or no later than 30 minutes after the end of the dance. Despite all of these strict rules, do not let this get in the way of having an awesome time at prom. Prom is meant to be a huge part of high school, and do not worry underclassmen your time will come soon!
But on Saturday it will finally be the time to bring out the fancy floor length dresses and tuxedos from your closet. Think red, black, and white for this years prom because the theme is casino. You could channel your inner James Bond and Vesper Lynd from Casino Royale and really enhance the casino theme.
Please, everyone, have a safe and wonderful prom! Hope to see you there!
