Prom season has arrived!Thursday, May 03, 2012 By Lucy Wildman
Attention senior boys: it’s officially prom season. You know what that means, right? Girls are dress shopping and waiting for that special someone to ask them. It’s the last chance we have to spend a night with our crush from PES junior year before we all go our separate ways to college. Prom is June 2, later than usual this year, but it’s coming up quickly; it’s only about two and a half months away. There are 49 days left of senior year and prom is the last event that the entire P-CEP senior class will be together. We’ve got to make it special. All three senior student councils are working hard to plan the night and will soon be selling tickets as well. The theme this year: light up the Night. The place: the Diamond Center. The time: 7:00 p.m. The people, as many P-CEP seniors as we can get. Girls, here are a few great places to begin dress shopping: David’s Bridal, Bella Mia and, of course, department stores like Macy’s , Nordstrom and Lord and Taylor. Boys, here are some suggestions to rent your tuxedos: Men’s Wearhouse, Randazzo Tuxedo Rentals, President Tuxedo, Milano Fine Apparel and Allure Bridal Salon. Most importantly (for some people anyway) though, is how you get asked. Now, although it may sound cheesy, nobody can go wrong with a Disney movie. Boys, take your lead from “High School Musical Senior Year” or, better yet, Disney’s more recently released movie, “Prom.” Chad (Corbin Bleu) bought some flowers and asked his girlfriend, Taylor, in front of the entire school at the lunch table. Followed, of course, by a song, but I think it’s safe to say that the latter part is unnecessary. In the movie Prom, Mei and Justin had been dating since eighth grade. Justin asked Mei more privately, but it was not in the least bit held back. He had some friends help him in the theater hold up signs: P, R, O and M. Each letter stood for something. Now, if your soon-to-be-prom-date doesn’t like flashy, showy moves, obviously, you shouldn’t follow the whole Disney thing. Ask quietly, when you’re alone. The most important thing to remember is the actual night. 1000 students in gorgeous dresses and tuxedos, making memories that will last forever. A word of caution though, don’t go with strangers and don’t go with just your date. Get your group of friends together and rent a party bus, go with 50 of your closest friends instead of having to choose between your significant other and your best friends. And take pictures, lots and lots of pictures. But don’t think it’s going to be magical and the best night of your life, because you will be let down. It will be a great night and full of friends and fun, but it will be one memory of many to come. It will be the ending to your high school career with the senior class of 1445. The last time all of us will be together.
