After Prom is open to ALL juniors/ seniors and their invited guests. A junior or senior need not attend prom to go to After Prom. This year the after-prom will be held at Jumpy’s in Troy. Jumpy’s provides laser tag, inflatables, foam ball zone, and an arcade to entertain students. The After-Prom committee will also provide unlimited pizza, drinks, and snacks for students who attend. They are seeking donations to help defray the cost of after-prom to ensure that all students who want to attend are able to attend. If you, your business, or your local organization would like to donate to after-prom you can contact High School Principal Jason Stephan at email@example.com or 937-692-5174.
Prom night is one of the most exciting, but potentially dangerous nights of our high school students’ lives. Together as a community, we can continue to provide a safe and fun alternative for our students. Thank you in advance Arcanum Community for making a difference and your continued support of Arcanum High School.
