Prom is getting closer every day, and students of Manchester Essex are getting ready with dresses, proposals and spirit.

Prom is on Friday May 30 at the Black Swan Country Club in Georgetown. The tickets will be $25 for seniors and $50 for juniors and guests.

Music-wise, Jennifer Coleman said, “There is going to be a DJ. We hired Mr. Cook who used to work here,” which she said, “should be significantly better than the DJ last year.”

The food at this years prom will be buffet style with a choice between chicken piccata and fettuccini alfredo in addition to salad with a choice of sides.

There is not a particular theme this year, but the Prom Committee picked theme colors silver, gold, and black for the decorations.

  Students are excited for this year’s prom for a variety of reasons. Senior Hannah Parker said, “I am most excited for the pictures and the dancing at prom!”  The dresses this year are a wide variety of colors from soft pastel floor length dresses to frilly vintage.Prom Dress Perry Burnham   A majority of the girls will be wearing their hair up this year, whether to show off the backs of their dresses as senior Olivia Bean said or to keep hair in place throughout the night of pictures and dancing.

Parker as well as many other girls see the pictures as the best part. “I’m most excited to get ready and take pictures,” senior Ella Rodier said.

“The prom pictures make me feel like I’m going to the Oscars,” Parker said.

Prom-goers are excited for other reasons too.  “I am most excited for this year’s prom because it is my senior prom and the venue is going to be so nice,” Bean said.

The Black Swan Country Club is often used for weddings with a grand dance floor, plenty of seating and colorful lights.

Senior Alexandra Valenti said she was most excited about, “just spending time with friends.”

Excitement builds for teachers, students anticipating prom

With only a little under three months to go before prom, students and teachers alike are beginning to finalize every last detail of the event.

  The prom this year will be held at the Double Tree Hotel in Danvers, formerly the Sheraton Ferncroft, and due to the SATs taking place Saturday, June 1, the prom has been tentatively changed from Friday, May 31 to Saturday, June 1 from 8-11 PM as of the page’s deadline.

  “The venue is very upscale and will fit all of the students perfectly. It just underwent major renovations, and I think students will appreciate the large sitting area,” senior class president Calvin Lamothe said.
  Senior class adviser Jared Harvey, the main coordinator, is in charge of all the details.

  An Italian buffet will be served for dinner, and a police detail will be at the venue due to the large number of students attending.
  “We’re planning on having the same DJ as we had last year because the students liked him so much, and an idea we’re also considering is having a bin full of flip-flops for when girls’ feet get tired,” Harvey said.

  Students will be required to ride with the school on the way there in school buses.
  Prom tickets will go on sale March 20th in the library. Tickets are $75 each and can be bought before or after school.

  Even though there are still over two months to go before prom, the creative invitations have already begun.

  On the recent school trip to Costa Rica over February vacation, senior Devin Congdon asked senior Ellie Mortillaro on the beach during sunset.

  “We were in Jacó, Costa Rica, and we were all walking on the beach during sunset, and then he suddenly asked me! I was so shocked, and I obviously said yes. It was really cute,” Mortillaro said.

  Some girls have even begun their searches for the perfect dress and shoes.

  “I have so many dresses and shoes that I possibly want to wear to prom saved on Wanelo,” junior Alexandra Valenti said.
