School Prom

In the United States, a prom, short for promenade, is a formal dance held at the end of the years of high school and college, called junior prom and senior prom respectively. In British English such an event would be called a ball, although in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand it is also often called a formal. In Australian schools the terms used are either formal or sometimes as Leaver's Dinner, usually so when the night includes a meal. In Ireland it is known as a debs (an abbreviation of debutante ball). In the U.S. a "formal" is typically a similar dance that is held by a fraternity or sorority affiliated with a certain college or university. In Australia, the term "prom" has also come into sparse usage and in Britain it is becoming widespread, because of US influence. The name is derived from the late ninteenth century practice of a Promenade ball. The end of year tradition stemmed from the Graduation Ball tradition.

Best High School After Prom Party

The Best High School After Prom Party

To students of Brookwood High School, the best high school after prom party they ever had was held at the swank estate of Georgia's Governor Sonny Perdue. This wasn't yoiur usual after-prom party. From a news report in, this high school after-prom party took 3 months of planning, a tab of $22,000 from the Georgia Sheriff's Association, and involved a slew of sponsors, Perdue's staffers said.

Five busloads of Brookwood High School seniors unloaded on Perdue's front lawn in Atlanta for four hours of partying, eating and face time with the governor after their prom.

To quote the report:
The grounds of the governor's swank north Atlanta mansion became the temporary home of inflatable obstacle courses where students jousted one another on spongy islands and strapped themselves to bungee cords in a doomed race against elasticity.

Inside the mansion, Waffle House set up shop in the ballroom, dishing out dinner for the first two hours of the party and breakfast during the last two. A wall of video games attracted a legion of students and Don Balfour, the school district's senator, who jostled a Ms. Pacman joystick en route to a high score.

And in a giant tent nearby, a DJ blasted hits and karaoke, inspiring the governor to declare, "'06 seniors rule."

Gov. Perdue said that the event's mission as to encourage responsible behavior among teens and reward the Atlanta high school for its efforts in tackling underage drinking.

The school, like many others, boasts a lock-in for seniors called "Project Graduation" that helps prevent dangerous post-graduation parties. And before spring break each year, the school rolls out a weeklong program that promotes safe driving.

Many of the students seemed awe-struck at the preparations.

"It's amazing," said Stephanie Hutton, a sophomore. "It's a dream come true."

Her date, Jeff Lynch, scoffed at the classmates who opted for other parties. Some 300 guests could have attended, but 230 showed.

"This is a crazy night. That's better than all that other stuff," the senior said, waving his arms at his surroundings.
