New Hope-Solebury’s Junior and Senior Prom is set for the evening of Friday, May 29, at The Lake House Inn. Originally built in the 1700’s and standing beside the beautiful Lake Nockamixon, the venue has won architectural awards while becoming one of the premiere wedding destinations in Bucks County.
In order to enjoy a night in the “Enchanted Garden”, this year’s prom theme, the junior class student government is vigorously planning fundraising events to keep ticket prices low and attendees satisfied.
After Homecoming Weekend’s Volleyball tournament at the Fall Festival, last year’s weekly donut fundraisers, and hot chocolate sales at Haunted Woods 2014, the junior class has aligned with its benchmark fundraising goals, but still has work to do.
The Class of 2016 operates the concession stand at every girls’ basketball game and has been selling coffee, hot dogs, and other snacks at home games.
Along with junior class advisors Ms. Ryan and Mr. Bachart, the officers are working towards a student-organized benefit concert in the early spring, with performances by talented classmates.
A dodgeball tournament will take place during Spirit Week 2015, as well as a Chipotle Night and potentially a Wing Fling around April.
The first way to help out with prom fundraising is by partaking in the Valentine’s Day singing telegram service, during the week of February 16. During this, a student can hire a small student group to perform a song during homeroom for a teacher, friend, or significant other.
With the springtime approaching, the junior class is working to secure funds for a successful prom. Students can help in this effort by participating in events and volunteering their time. Prom is a landmark event in many students’ high school careers, as it alludes to warmer weather and summer fun. A night in the “Enchanted Garden” will be one to remember for the student body, as seniors plunge into their future endeavors and juniors prepare for their last year at New Hope-Solebury.
