4 Prom-Jonathan

Promenade (noun): a formal dance, especially one held by a class in high school or college at the end of a year. More conventionally known as one four letter word: Prom. Prom is not just what its definition entails, prom is the night when there are no longer jocks, nerds, cheerleaders, and class clowns. Instead there is one class, one family, one group of people that even after spending years together in school are only just beginning to reveal themselves. The one night when high school popularity finally fades into oblivion and the sense of newfound adulthood weighing on the minds of high school seniors is temporarily replaced with the carefree joy of being a teenager, if only for the night.

Swept away with imagery depicting the Prom’s theme, secret garden, the night exceeded the high expectations of every senior by far.  The floral centerpieces and nature- like atmosphere gave the ballroom an enchanted aura.

Newspaper photographers also attended the event, PPCHS is now featured in the Sun Sentinel. The Sentinel’s PPCHS prom page can be visited here: www.sun-sentinel.com/news/sfl-pembroke-pines-charter-school-prom-2014-pictures-20140518,0,6009411.photogallery.

“I can honestly say Prom was one of the best nights of my life, the whole senior class got the chance to gather together one last time before we go our separate ways and begin the rest of our lives independently” says senior Dymin Richardson.

After all the dancing, eating, talking, and laughing, the most anticipated moment of the night was the crowning of the 2014 prom king and queen. Although the race was close, the night’s royalty were Katlyn Vasallo as queen and Nicholas Bastidas as king. The night was nothing short of magical, and was something every student there will remember forever.
