Senior Ball is approaching in two days, and the seniors are excited to dance the night away. This Saturday, seniors will be gathering at the SCCC (Silver Creek Country Club) at 7:30 p.m. for A Night to Remember at their last high school dance.
The officer’s Class of 2019 officers have been planning the event since junior year, and after looking at various venues, ended up choosing the SCCC.
“The SCCC had plenty of space to host all of the students. It also has a balcony that has a very nice view,” said Secretary Shayna Tran.
The venue is relatively near and is located in the hills of Silver Creek, around a 15 minute drive from Piedmont. The venue overlooks a golf course that has a vast field of greenery.
“I think that the scenery and the venue itself will make for exceptional photos to capture memories of our senior prom,” said senior Thienkim Luu.
The theme of the Senior Ball this year is A Night to Remember, and was chosen through brainstorming and eliminating within the officers. The officers eventually chose the theme feeling that it was best fit for their Senior Ball this year.
“[With the theme] we are aiming for a flashback through high school. Memories!” explained President Jane Tran.
Along with planning the venue and theme the officers, also had to decide on the activities and food at prom.
“[There will be] flipbooks, a photo booth, and a DJ,” stated Jane.
There will not be dinner at the Senior Ball, but instead hors d’oeuvres, or appetizers, will be served.
The officers were not the only people making decisions. The seniors also had to choose their outfits, ties, and corsages along with places to take pre-prom pictures.
“[To me] finding a dress and dealing with organizing photoshoots was the most stressful” said Quynh Nguyen.
In the end all of the planning will pay off on the night of prom where they will be spending time with their friends.
“I’m looking forward to hanging out with my friends and have a good night!” said Ricky Nguyen.
Class officers are excited to see the final result of all their work.
“I’m super excited for prom! Especially after all of the planning the officers had to do,” said Shayna.
