STANTON COMMUNITY SCHOOL BULLETIN APRIL 28, 2017
The Junior Class has been busy planning the big night of prom for the past several months. This year’s theme is Paris. Prom will be held on Saturday evening, April 29th. Everyone is invited to watch walk-in which will commence at 6:30 PM. *Walk-in will be held in the Viking Center.* Julie Strickland of Strickland Photography will take pictures beginning at 4:00 PM that afternoon. Students have signed up in the office for a time. We ask that no parents, siblings or friends are in the picture area when the couples are being photographed. No other picture taking is permitted at that time. The meal will be served at approximately 7:00 PM with the dance to begin at 8:30 PM. We ask that only prom-goers and invited guests are in the concourse/gym area after the walk-in. If you want to take pictures of your child/date, please do so prior to this time. After-prom activities will conclude the evening. The Juniors and Seniors are looking forward to a fun-filled and safe evening and hope to see you all at walk-in!
Sophomore and freshmen prom servers are asked to report to the lunch room on Saturday, April 29th at 5:30 PM. Please remember to wear a white button-down shirt, black pants and comfortable shoes.
