Keep our kids safe, Mount Pulaski plans post-prom

Send a link to a friend  Share

Dear Community Members and Parents,

This year’s Prom is rapidly approaching on May 5th, and Prom will be followed by an “After Prom” party at the high school. This is the 30th year for the community to sponsor a drug and alcohol free event following prom. This is an important event for the area and crucial to keeping our young people safe during Prom season. More alcohol-related fatal car crashes among teens occur during Prom season than any other time of the year. This is why we are asking for your support to continue this event at the Mt. Pulaski High School!

“After Prom” starts at 11pm and ends at 5am. It is open to all Mt. Pulaski High School juniors and seniors regardless if they attend Prom or not. Upon entering, each student will sign in. To attend, each student will need a waiver signed by their parent which will need to be turned in to the school. If a waiver is not turned in the student will not be allowed to attend the "After-Prom" party. No Exceptions. The waiver form will be available on the school website or in the office. There will be entertainment, food, and lots of prizes.

This event is sponsored solely through donations. One of the biggest draws of Post Prom is the wonderful prizes that are given during the event to the students in attendance.

Please consider making a donation to this worthwhile activity. Your generosity of money, a prize, or a gift card could be the decisive factor in keeping more students at the event. This is an investment in the youth of Mt. Pulaski!

Donations can be hand carried or mailed to:

Mt. Pulaski High School
Attn: After Prom Party
206 South Spring Street
Mt. Pulaski, IL 62548

Please call if you have any questions or if you would like for your donation to be picked up.

Thank you in advance,

Post Prom Committee
