The Future of Prom Shopping
Ever think about one-stop shopping for dresses, jewelry, a hair dresser, flowers, and even limousines?
That’s the vision for next year’s prom expo, the brain child of teachers Mrs. Piper, Mrs. Harrington, and
medical teacher Mrs.Roy.
Mrs. Roy said, ‘’ I thought of this idea because of those wedding expos and I thought of a prom expo for
kids … to chose everything they need. They can go to one place and see everything they want all in one day.”
The event will hopefully double as a fundraiser for the prom and will be held here at the school,
allowing students from any school in the area to pay a small price and secure all of their prom necessititeis in
one spot. Stay tuned for more details next spring!
