CCHS students gearing up for 2017 Prom this weekend

It’s prom season in the area and schools are busy readying for their big event.

Prom in Charles City will be held this Saturday, April 22nd, with a theme of “Picture Perfect.”

The Junior Class in Charles City has been in planning mode since November for this year’s prom.  Junior Class president Ryan Wolfe talks about the work that has been put into planning the prom.

There are several new changes to this year’s prom including location of the Grand March, which will be held in the new competition gym at the middle school. There will be a $1.00 admission for the Grand March, and doors will open at 6:30 p.m., with the Grand March beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Also new this year will be the location of After-Prom, which is a parent-run event. That will take place at the new middle school this year.

Junior Class Vice-President Ciana Sonberg talks about how the junior class settled on this year’s theme of “Picture Perfect.”

Junior class sponsor Laura Walker said pulling off the prom each year does require quite a bit of high school staff assistance.

Rudd-Rockford-Marble Rock will hold their prom this Saturday as well, with the theme ‘Under The Stars.” Grand march will begin at 7:00 p.m. at the RRMR high school, with the after-prom also being held at the high school.

In the Nashua-Plainfield district, prom will be held on Saturday, April 29th with Grand March beginning at 6 p.m. at the Nashua-Plainfield high school. After prom will be held at the W in Waverly. Buses will be loaded at the high school gym at 11:30 p.m. with a return at 3:30 a.m.
