Prom and Prom Court Nominees

Prom and Prom Court Nominees

On Monday, March 25th the 2024 Prom Court was announced. The Prom Court is made up of a group of six senior girls and six senior boys, each nominated by their peers. The members of the court are paired up at random and tasked with creating a fun and entertaining video that will be shown to all students prior to Prom. After the videos are viewed, Juniors and Seniors have the opportunity to vote for who they would like to be this year’s Prom Queen and King; the winners of Prom Court will be announced at Prom. This year’s Prom Court King nominee list consists of Drew Dylenski, Mark Fuerher, Quinten Powers, Sai Vanteru, Sam Metcalf, and Julian Zolenski. The Queen nominees are Cat Doherty, Alaina Gipson, Avery Headworth, Sarah Laidler, Maria Ainsworth, and Logan Kirkwood. 

Prior to Prom, all grades are welcome to participate in a school-wide assembly where the court members will be announced and fun games will follow. 

For those of you who have never been to Prom before and are unsure of how it differs from other school dances, here are a few reminders. If you are planning on attending Prom, know that you must buy your tickets in advance. Because meals are served at Prom, the school has to know how many meals to tell the caterers to prepare. Also, you will have to decide and notify your class advisors about who will be sitting at your table at Prom before your arrival; more information about this will be announced once we get closer to the actual event. Having a pre-decided table chart helps Prom run more smoothly because people do not have the scramble around the venue to find their friends and a place to sit. For the girls, know that Prom is a long-dress event, unlike Homecoming or Swirl. A long dress is not required to attend, but know that a long dress is the traditional custom of Prom. Also, remember that because dinner is served at the event, Prom is longer and starts earlier as compared to other school dances. Prom starts at 6 pm, with food served first; then once everyone is finished eating, the dance begins. 

Despite the many differences that make Prom unique, there are still some similarities Prom shares with other school dances. To start, if you are planning on bringing someone from a different school, you will have to fill out a form with their information. 

This year, Prom will be held at Thousand Oaks on April 27th from 6-10 pm. Pay attention to your email these upcoming weeks for more details!
