Junior/Senior Prom is April 17

DCHS Journalism

This year's prom will be on Saturday, April 17 with the theme of “Enchanted Forest” put on by the juniors.


The juniors will decorate all day Friday, April 16. The public can view the decorations at the Gateway on Saturday from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. The promenade down Penn Avenue will then start at 6:30.  All juniors, seniors, and their dates need to be at the movie theater by 6:15 to line up.


The prom banquet will start at 7:00, followed by the dance. At 11:30, the students will change into their post-prom clothes, and at midnight, the senior parents take over with the post-prom activities. 


Parents are asked to bring a bag with a change of clothes for their kids to the Gateway between 5:00 and 5:30 on Saturday for the post-prom activities. (Please don’t forget hangers for their formal wear. If your child is bringing an out-of-town date, please make sure you bring his/her change of clothes also.) Parents may also take pictures at the Gateway at that time.


In the event of rain, the promenade will take place in the high school gymnasium.
