Prom Overview 2020
The DHS Junior Class is responsible for giving the Junior-Senior Prom. The Junior Class officers and their parents are the committee that are in charge of raising the money, coordinating, planning, and decorating for the prom. The Junior Class President and his/her parents are the chairs of that committee.
- It has been a long-standing tradition at DHS for ONLY Juniors and Seniors who are enrolled and attending DHS to be invited to the Prom.
-Students attending DAEP are not part of the DHS campus, and therefore, are not invited to the DHS Prom. If a student is assigned to ISS or DAEP the day of the prom, he/she may not attend the prom.
-For the 2020-21 school year, 12 points must be earned by a junior to pay for both junior and senior prom and project graduation fees. Each point is worth one hour, so twelve (12) hours must be worked in the concession stand during football season.
-Junior parents can also earn points at a rate of 1 point per hour
-Ways to earn points for prom: Football concessions is the main way to earn points, Other opportunities include unloading the trailer with concession stand supplies and stocking them in the concession stands, helping with the homecoming float during homecoming years, other possible fundraisers, and any other opportunities that arise.
-These additional opportunities will be announced through school announcements, parent/student emials, and the Junior Class Remind texts/app. All juniors and junior parents are encouraged to sign up for the reminds each year
-Only juniors may earn prom points; seniors may not work concessions. Exceptions to this rule are move-ins, transfers, hardships, etc.
-All Students have the opportunity to go to prom with a free ticket
See the prom sponsor with questions regarding financial hardships. Numerous opportunities to work prom points/hours are provided. Students must put forth the effort to work their 12 hours if they don't want to pay for prom. The cost of a prom ticket is $300. It covers both junior and senior year. If you don't work your 12 hours, you pay for your ticket. If you work your 12 hours, you go free.
