It is hard to believe that summer is just about over! For the senior parents, the ride has just started! Before you know it you will be taking Prom photos and wondering how you will stay awake all night long to work at After Prom!
For those who don’t know me, I have been the Chairperson for After Prom for the Class of 2012 and 2015. Helping to provide a safe and entertaining evening on the night of Prom, created lasting memories, for my After Prom parent team and all the students, that will last a lifetime. It takes nine months and a dedicated large team of parents to make After Prom an amazing experience for our students.
I have had a fair number of now senior parents ask me about getting involved. So far, no one has stepped up to be the Chairperson or Treasurer to lead this adventure. I have agreed to coordinate the first meeting (only) for After Prom for the Class of 2016 to get the project off to a running start. I invite you to attend the first meeting and see how you can help. There are a slew of ways you can help, from selling candy bars, to volunteering, to leading one of 18 committees. Don’t be shy about going out of your comfort zone to take on a role. There are notes, minutes and binders from other classes to help.
The first meeting for the Class of 2016 will be Monday, August 10, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. at the Chesterland Public Library.
Last year we celebrated the 30th anniversary of After Prom at West Geauga. I can’t convey in words how supportive the school administration, high school teachers and community are in continuing this tradition to keep our seniors safe on the night of Prom. I hope you will provide your talents and support this year.
