Junior Prom – Class of 2022

Junior Prom has been canceled this year. After discussions with both class officers and school administrators, it was determined that it would be best to wait and hold a Senior Prom next spring when it is our hope that any member of the class who wishes to attend may do so safely. More information regarding the Class of 2022 Senior Prom and other senior activities will be shared as it becomes available.
