Exciting venue set for prom
Loyalton High School’s prom of 2010 will be held at Graeagle Meadows Golf Course on May 22 from 8 p.m. to midnight. Tickets are being sold at $20 per ticket or $18 dollars per ticket with a student body card. Tickets can be purchased until May 19 at lunch in room 119.
Unlike previous years, prom tickets are not being sold for a couple’s price. However, the price has been lowered in order to make prom affordable and to produce a larger turnout.
&nsp;&nsp;&nsp;&nsp;The prom theme for 2010 is Red Carpet Glamour. Students will be dancing to a disc jockey who was recommended by a well-liked disc jockey from last year’s prom. Lifetouch will also be at prom taking portraits, with prices available at prom.
ASB member Jose Ramirez designed the invitations for prom. According to Nunes the invitations are very different from the ones used in previous years and, even though she finds herself in need of chaperones, Joanne Nunes is very positive about prom. “I think it will be one of the best proms that we’ve had, because everyone is excited about it, and there seems to be a high turnout.” She also gave special thanks to Katie Roberti for all of the hard work and dedication she has put into this year’s prom.
Students going to prom will need to sign a prom contract to ensure, in the words of Nunes, “a happy, safe prom for everyone.”
The prom contract requires the following:
- Students must purchase tickets before the dance.
- Both the student and parent or guardian must sign the contract in order to receive a ticket.
- Students will not be allowed into prom half an hour after it has already started and will not be allowed to leave more than a half hour before the end of the dance.
- No backpacks or bags will be allowed in; purses are subject to search.
- No middle school students will be allowed to attend.
- All students must be willing to submit to a search for alcohol, drugs, and tobacco as well as a Breathalyzer test before entering.
- Guests must have a pass by 3 p.m. on the Friday before the dance.
- Any student involved in one of the following will be subject to disciplinary actions according to the California Education Code:
- Committing any type of harassment
- Fighting or physically assaulting another person
- Possessing, using or selling weapons, drugs, tobacco, or alcohol
- Wearing inappropriate clothing
- Dancing or behaving in an inappropriate manner
Culture Club arranges trip to The City
LHS’s Culture Club is headed to San Francisco next week in an effort to culturally expand the student members’ experiences. Most of the time in San Francisco will be spent walking from place to place and enjoying the scenery that San Francisco has to offer.
They will be heading out on Wednesday at 11 a.m. and arriving in San Francisco at about 3:30. Once there, the students will go straight to the City Center Youth Hostel, a place for traveling youth to stay. Then that evening they will have dinner in downtown San Francisco and attend the musical Wicked at the Orpheum Theatre. Wicked is a Broadway musical loosely based on the best-selling novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, which is a parallel novel of the 1939 film of L. Frank Baum’s classic story The Wonderful Wizard of Oz from a perspective of the witches of the Land of Oz.
Senior Emily Loveridge said she is most “ecstatic about seeing Wicked” and is really looking forward to it.
Megan Meschery, the Culture Club advisor, hopes that after the musical the LHS students will mingle with other students at the hostel so that they can meet and talk with peers from other parts of the world.
Thursday will consist of breakfast at about 9 a.m. and then a scavenger hunt around the city. This exciting event will take place with two teams traveling and seeing the sights while having a fun, competitive feel. The places have not been set for certain about the scavenger hunt but may include places such as the Museum of Modern Art and an aquarium.
Culture Club president Abigail Cabrera explained how she is really excited to be able to explore San Francisco for the first time.
“It’s going to be my first live musical and it’ll be fun getting to know new places.”
