Other Useful Info.

 

Where is Junior Prom?

Junior Prom is at “The Italian Center,” 1620 Newfield Avenue, Stamford.


What date and time is Junior Prom?

Junior Prom is Friday, May 20th. Doors open at 7:00PM for check-in/cocktail hour. All guests must arrive by 8:30PM. NO ONE WILL BE ALLOWED TO ENTER AFTER 8:30PM. If you have a sports or job-related reason for why you will arrive after 8:30PM, you must include it on page 3. Junior Prom ends at midnight. NO ONE WILL BE ALLOWED TO LEAVE until at least10:30PM.


What do I need to bring to prom?

An appetite – a delicious buffet dinner will be served. A pleasant attitude – prom is a privilege, not a right, and anyone acting rudely or antagonistically will be sent home. YOUR SOBER SELF – anyone who appears to be under the influence of anything other than “a good time” will have their parent or guardian called, be picked up by their parent or guardian, and subject to further disciplinary measures. And a pair of comfy shoes to change in to – everyone takes off their “fancy prom shoes” eventually, and it’s gross when those same folks proceed to go in and out of the bathrooms with no footwear on.


EVERYONE ATTENDING JUNIOR PROM – GUESTS INCLUDED – MUST BRING A PHOTO ID.






 
PLEASE SUPPORT
 THE AFTER PROM

 The Senior After Prom is the party after the party that is put on at Westhill from midnight - 3:00am to provide a safe and drug and alcohol free environment for our kids. There is a DJ, food, full gym of blow ups and games, photo booth and more. Most importantly-there are prizes that are raffled off every 15 minutes. The better prizes come later in the evening as incentive for the kids to stay as long as possible.
 They must be present to win! 

This event is run completely by volunteers and donations-both monetary and in kind - food, drinks, candy, paper goods and all the raffle prizes. 

We need your help! Please consider volunteering your time that evening (grillers, set up, registration) or donating a prize or cash towards the event.  Great, fun and easy way to get involved at school! 
 The night of the event is Friday May 27!

If you are a parent of a Senior - let's make this the best one yet. If you are a parent of an under classman - this is your chance to pay it forward knowing/hoping that others will step up to make your children's After Prom the best it can be in the future.
It takes the whole village!
