This year's junior class officers are planning prom and they created a survey asking the junior and senior class which theme they like the best. The theme options were Floral, Great Gatsby, Greek, Out of this world (Space), and Under the Stars.
Some students weren’t a big fan of the theme “Under the Stars” because they feel like it's over used since we did have a similar theme for 2018 homecoming, Paris: under the Stars . Although Senior Makayla Simmons had a different opinion, she said “My favorite theme was Under the Stars because it makes me think of those classic proms you see in the movies”. Makayla’s least favorite theme was floral because when she did not think of prom when she first saw the floral theme. Despite the theme that is decided Makayla will still be attending prom and will try to keep the theme in mind when deciding what she will wear. Junior Edon Veliu seemed to agree with Makayla with his favorite theme being Under the Stars and Great Gatsby. He said “I feel like there’s going to be cool decorations for those.” Edon’s least favorite theme was Greek. Edon said he didn’t know how he felt about a Greek theme. Just like Makayla and many other juniors and seniors, Edon plans to go to prom and attempt to follow the theme to the best of his abilities no matter what it ends up being.
Being a senior myself, I have noticed that no matter what the theme is at any school dance, no one will follow it because they will wear whatever they feel good in, even if it doesn’t match the theme. Although there are a few people who are considerate of the theme and they dress to match. Majority of the seniors I know don’t care about what the theme will be, they plan on going to prom no matter what. I know that for myself I have always had an idea of what prom should be due to all the movies and television shows I’ve watched. A lot of students have been waiting and dreaming for prom just like I have. Therefore the theme will not be a major factor when most juniors and seniors are deciding whether or not to go to the long awaited prom.
