Prom and Casino Night

The last day to buy PROM tickets is today. Prom is only a week away, and is sure to be wonderful night of “well-mannered friviolity” at Paradise Valley. So, be sure to purchase your tickets ASAP to save a space for you (and possibly a friend or two) at this night to remember!

Also, our seniors have earned most of the money needed for their upcoming trip to Washington DC, which is a critical component of their grade in their Government class.
