It’s that time of year again…Prom! Girls will be purchasing lovely gowns, boys will be renting their tuxes and parents will be spending big bucks to ensure that their children have a great time. Madison County High School has set the date for prom as May 7 from 8 p.m.-12 midnight.
Tickets are now on sale for $30. As always each senior will be given his or her personal ticket for free. Students taking dates that do not attend MCHS must have their dates approved through the school; forms are available in the front office.
The Junior class has chosen the theme for this year to be “P.S. I Love You.” The color scheme will be red, white and black.
For the whole night, a DJ will be spinning off the latest hits and, of course, some of the best dance classics. There will be refreshments and finger foods served during the entire event.
Students attending the prom are sure to have a great time making new memories and dancing the night away. However, the fun of prom begins long before 8 p.m. Girls will begin getting their hair done early in the morning, and many will get their nails done during the week before. Once their hair is ready, they will begin work on their make-up, followed by making sure that their dress is perfect and every accessory is sparkling.
After getting ready, there will be hundreds of pictures taken. Many students gather in the park next to the Court House to take photos with their friends and loved ones. Anyone riding by the park on May 7 is sure to see plenty of beautifully dressed teenagers smiling for the cameras.
By the time the students bid farewell to their families, they are more than ready to be done taking pictures and ready to begin their evening. Some will go to Valdosta or Tallahassee to eat before prom. Others may eat large dinners at home or even at local restaurants.
When the prom-goers finally arrive at the high school, school administrators will welcome them as they take their tickets. Mr. Radel will then take pictures of each group or couple before leading them into the doors.
Upon entering the gym, the students will be amazed at the transformation from drab gym to prom paradise.
Students will be able to dance the night away on the huge dance floor. There will also be plenty of tables to sit at when dancers need a break. The gym will be covered in the theme colors: red, white and black. There will be a ton of decorations and gossamer surrounding the gym.
For students planning to attend parties after, remember to stay safe and never ride with anyone who is drinking and driving. Underage drinking is not only dangerous; it is illegal. There are plenty of ways to have a great night without drinking.
Greene Publishing, Inc. would like to wish all of the students a happy and memorable prom!
