Rebs, that time of year has officially arrived again: Prom! On Saturday, April 21st, Quartz Hill High School will be hosting its annual Prom. With the theme of Party at Jay Gatsby’s, this event will take place at the Belasco Theater. Tickets went on sale for $110 with an ASB card, $120 without an ASB card, and $130 for guests.

As it is technically the Junior Prom, the ASB Junior Class began preparing as soon as the year began. However, much of the preparation took place once the second semester rolled around. Over the course of the year, the Junior Class has been in charge of preparing the theme, the additional activities, the ticket sales day, and Prom court.

Mona Qrib, ASB Junior Class Treasurer, shared her responsibilities in terms of preparing for Prom: “I had the role of ensuring our budget was within the limits to go towards funding Prom; I did this by planning fundraisers such as during the Homecoming Carnival. As a representative of the class, I made sure Prom was well-publicized, whether it was during Club Rush, where we had a poll for Prom themes, or when we had a Prom survey for the upperclassmen. The biggest thing to prepare for was the Prom ticket sales day where everyone who wanted to attend Prom had to go through the process of turning in their paperwork. For six hours that day, I made sure that everyone was doing their job, helping where I could, keeping the souvenir table filled, constantly running back and forth making sure everything went smoothly.”

One of the first steps involved in preparing for this event was choosing a venue. The previous year’s officers and the Class of 2019 had a wide variety of venues to choose from which they had visited. Subsequent to this, the ASB class as a whole held a discussion about which venue to choose and finalized it with a class vote. As for decorations, even though the venue is as elegant and decorative as it is, an outside organization will help bring ASB’s vision to life.

Of course, a venue is only as lively as the students in it, especially the go-getters running for Prom Court. In order to have run, the student must have been a junior who meets the academic standards and is involved in at least one school activity, whether it is a sport, club, or academic program. The official Prom Court will be finalized after the first voting round, which will consist of six princes and six princesses.

Junior Class Treasurer Mona Qrib stated her aspiration for Prom: “One goal that had been anticipated for since the beginning of the year, and had seemed nearly impossible to do since the previous year’s classes had not achieved it, was exceeding 900 attendees at Prom. This is the first year that Quartz Hill has a Prom with 1000 plus attendees, making it the biggest prom in Quartz Hill history.”

Prom will be a great opportunity for students to enjoy their night with friends and be transported back to the Roaring Twenties for a night well-spent.
