Yes...I'm aware that there was a royal wedding but I had bigger fish to fry this week. We had to get ready for our school's FIRST EVER PROM! My first as a high school principal and the first since my very own high school prom MANY moons ago. My first prom THIS century. (OK...I know...you get it!)
While I can't show you photos of any of the students, I can share a few of the venue and one of me and my sweetie pie. Hank was a trooper...he was there from start to finish. Our friend Ted came to help too, thank goodness. Hank and Ted made sure that the punch bowl stayed full (and unspiked) while the staff and I made sure that the students stayed true to their "prom promise" to leave typical high school drama and other shenanigans out of this special night of celebration.
The students chose "An Evening in Paris" as the theme and while it was "prommy" as you would expect, I carried silver and crystal for the refreshment table. Many of our students don't have a lot of advantages...some have never eaten in a "sit down" restaurant from a real menu. They were over the moon when they saw, as one student said, "all the fancy stuff"! Each student received a goblet (a goblet that is NOT a wine glass) as a prom favor.
I'm so proud that the night was a success...proud and completely exhausted...my feet are still killing me this morning. I tried to participate in a group dance and lasted about three minutes. I'm old...old and out of shape. REALLY need to do something about that.
On another happy note...my grad classes are OVER....YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!!!!
Graduation is May 31...where did the year go??
