This card will inform you of your line-up location for Grand March. DO NOT LOSE YOUR GRAND MARCH CARD. If you do lose it, you will be placed at the end of the Grand March line-up.
All prom attendees must complete a breathalyzer test. You must pass this breathalyzer test before you will be allowed to get pictures, get in line for Grand March to have any access to the main part of the building.
Grand March begins at 7:00PM. Grand March line-up is organized by the color of your Grand March card. Grand March order is as follows: Student Body President, Senior Class Officers, Junior Class Officers, Student Council, Prom Committee 2018, Prom Committee 2017 and then the remainder of the prom attendees in the general order in which tickets were purchased. Within your color group, the order is random and first-come, first-up. Mrs. Holly Lestikow will be helping to usher all students into the Grand March line-up. The line-up will also be posted in multiple places along the hallway outside of the gym.
