After Prom Update – 04/23/14

Juniors and seniors, make plans to attend After Prom 2014 that will happen at Valley Lanes from midnight to 3am! We have rented out the facility so only TA students and their guests will be in the building that evening. There will be bowling, a photo booth, Texas Hold ‘em, Black Jack (where you can win money), food, and billiards all for the price of a $5.00 ticket! Tickets go on sale alongside the Prom tickets in the cafeteria during lunch next week. They can also be purchased at the door. Guys who rent their tuxes from Classic Tuxedo can get free tickets for themselves and their dates! Remember, you do not have to attend prom to attend After Prom
