After Prom
The After Prom planning committee is looking for parents interested in helping with organizing After Prom. You don't have to have a senior to help - any parent is encouraged to help. There are many tasks to make the event successful (e.g. fundraising, decorating, phone calls, creative ideas, etc.) so assistance will be greatly appreciated.

There is an After Prom comment box on Mrs. Stack's desk in the lobby that students can leave ideas and suggestions of places to hold After Prom, activities to offer, and prizes to win.  If a parent is interested in helping, students can leave their parent's information in the comment box.

If interested in helping out in some form or providing financial support please contact Ms Pamela (substitute teacher and mother) either by depositing your name and information in the After Prom box or Call (216) 990-2538.  The first meeting of the After Prom Committee will be held on Wednesday, November 12th in the Steele Library at 6:00 p.m.  It will last about an hour.  We hope to see you there!
