As of now, juniors could be having their prom in the cafeteria if money isn’t raised for the cause.

Prom advisor and Special Education teacher Kathy Krause said that at the start of this school year the junior class actually has no money to spend on prom.

Krause said, “The class officers are partly responsible for raising money for their class.”

Class officers have taken the reins and are now implementing plans to make up for the financial deficit.

Junior class officer, Alexis Brunette said, “We are planning different fundraising events that will help our lack of money for prom. We already held a chocolate bar sale through the school store which got us a good amount of money–about $200.”

Krause explained that she is working on getting bake sale set up. She is also talking to DECA. They receive funding from the school store. Krause said that they might be willing to give the junior class some of the profits they make for one day.

“Two of our officers who are in DECA have their project that has to do with apparel. They sell their apparel at the basketball games and a percentage of their sales can go to the junior class,” Brunette said.

“We have many plans for [other] events, like two possible bake sales happening at the basketball games, a possible booyah sale, 50/50 raffles, and making t-shirts for our class.

Even though this seems like bad news, the Prom committee, class officers, and Krause are trying their best to find a fun venue and is even looking into having it at Harley Davidson.

Brunette said, “We have just created a Twitter account @bp2018class where we will post when the event is being hosted.”

    I was disappointed to hear that the prom venue is cancelled and I hope they can pull something together that will make memories last a life time .
