We are so excited about the upcoming Prom. It will be immediately following the Gala. The dress is same as Gala…semi formal to formal. The theme is the same as Gala “Denim and Diamonds”. It should start about 10 pm and end at midnight. We will do a prom king and queen vote and a lead out by grade. There will be pictures available also. We need to address the following and feel it will not be a problem. 

Appropriate dress is required for all who attend. This includes contestants and any guest they bring. 

Young men are expected to wear dress shirts, clean jeans or dress pants, boots or other dress shoes. This means a shirt that buttons down the front and has a collar. This can be a western shirt or more formal shirt such as Sunday attire. Tuxedo, ties, jackets, etc. are not required but may be worn. Shirt must remain on and tucked in the entire dance .

Young ladies may wear semi-formal, formal dresses or dressy skirts and blouses, semi-formal pantsuit or dressy shirt and nice jeans. Boots and other dress shoes will be allowed. Dresses must be no shorter than fingertip length. Full midriffs must be covered. The neckline must not plunge low.
Backs may not be lower than the natural waistline. No see-through material and slits in dress may not be higher than fingertip length. The following will not be acceptable by men or ladies: shorts, tank tops, t-shirts, tennis shoes,
flip flops, jeans with holes, etc. The board and chaperones have the right to refuse admittance to anyone not having appropriate dress.

Those who attend the cowboy prom are expected to behave in a mature, dignified manner.  Contestants and guest are asked to dance appropriately. 3. All NHSRA and AHSRA rules and guidelines are in effect during the Cowboy Prom. This includes policies regarding drugs, alcohol, and tobacco products.

Contestants will be allowed to bring one guest with them. Each contestant is responsible for his/her guest. The guest does not have to be an AHSRA contestant. Contestants State Finals back #’s will be required to enter prom. Contestants will be required to sign themselves and guest in at entrance
to prom and back # will be turned in. Contestant back #’s will be returned as he/she leave the prom. Once a contestant and guest enter the prom, they must remain in the building until ready to leave the prom. You will not be allowed to re-enter. The Cowboy Prom is being held in hopes of many positive memories being made for all that attend. Misbehavior by any individual will not be tolerated. Anyone unable to comply with the above rules will be denied admission, could be asked to leave, and parents contacted.

Thanks
