Prom: A Night to Remember
Angela Hartnett, Head Teacher at 30th Street
On May 5th, 2023, Aaron High School hosted its first annual prom for 11th and 12th graders. The gymnasium was magically transformed into a spectacular “Night in New York,” transporting students into the glitz and glamor of the Big Apple.
As the students arrived, they were greeted by the faculty as they made their way to the gym, with New York-themed songs playing in the background including Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ Empire State of Mind, Taylor Swift’s Welcome to New York and Tony Bennett’s quintessential hit, New York, New York. They made their grand entrances walking through a large arch made of balloons and took it all in: the lights, the decorations, the centerpieces, the music and of course, the dance floor! Students took group and individual photographs, showing off their dynamic personalities and their best-dressed attire worthy of rockstars and movie stars.
The DJ set the tone for an exhilarating night of music, dancing and celebration. The dance floor quickly came alive with students showcasing their slickest moves, creating an atmosphere of pure joy and excitement. Every student embraced the opportunity to dance, mingle and have an amazing time together. After tearing up the dance floor for some time, students took a break to socialize over a catered dinner. There was an array of delicious dishes to choose from: baked ziti, mozzarella sticks, caesar salad and much more. Throughout the night, a professional photographer ensured that every smile, dance move, and special moment was captured. The students also had a blast at the selfie photo booth, putting on the costume accessories, holding up props and snapping pictures to take home as souvenirs.
The 11th and 12th grade prom for Aaron High School was a huge success! The dedication, enthusiasm, and passion that everyone put into this event created an unforgettable experience for the students. It was a memorable evening filled with laughter, friendship, dancing, and smiles that will be remembered by the students for years to come.
