The night that every highschooler dreams of, the night that will forever stick in the memories of students, it’s prom night.
On February 24th, the prom theme was revealed as “Visions of Venice” at an assembly. Students left the assembly feeling curious as to what they may expect from prom night.
Junior Student Council members know students will have an unforgettable experience on April 15th at Villa Siena in Gilbert. The theme “Visions of Venice” was chosen because of the venue’s Italian textures and vibes that give the impression one is in Venice, Italy.
Juniors and Seniors are welcome to attend prom wearing their best formal attire and enjoy their night in “Visions of Venice”. Lower classmen are invited to participate as well, but they must have a date to prom that is a Junior or Senior.
According to Megan Petersen, a Junior Student Council member, “At prom, will have food, a DJ, a violinist for the courtyard, bistro lighting, and many photo opportunities”. The entire venue was rented out so students are free to roam and explore to their heart’s content.
To give perspective into how much time and dedication has been put into this year’s prom, student council members have been working on this dance for almost a year. Prom Committee Chairperson Kylee Giannini said, “We started in May of 2016 because we had to find a venue and figure out a theme to base every decision on. I'd say it's the equivalent of planning a wedding but you have to impress 400 kids.”
The members of Student Council pour endless hours into preparing a memorable night for the student body.
Desirae Sherwood, a student council member, stated, “This year’s prom will be the best that they’ve [PBHS] had in awhile because of the excellent planning and fresh ideas to improve on previous dances.”
With all plans going accordingly and the venue being decorated properly, Prom 2017 is perfectly set up for anyone to have the time of their life. Tickets are on sale now at the Spirit Store- $90 for singles and $170 for couples.
