Prom 2018 A Beautiful Affair

Last Friday night, close to 220 junior and seniors attended the 2018 prom at the beautiful Ipswich Country Club in Ipswich after the Grand March at GMHS. This is a tradition that I love but have never seen in other districts before coming to Georgetown. I love the way the community comes together in large numbers to see the students all donned in their beautiful dresses and handsome formal wear walking through the archway to the delight of the crowd who was taking pictures like the paparazzi. Again this year, I want to thank Georgetown’s personal photographer  Scott Jones who was taking professional photos for the students as the stood under the arch smiling and looking beautiful. This is always a labor of love for Scott and he does this every year as only one of the ways he supports our schools and gives back to the community. Thanks to Scott!

The Ipswich Country Club was a beautiful venue with a nice deck that students could enjoy and after dark there was a fire pit to keep them warm. The DJ was amazing and as I said in my twitter post that you can tell that a DJ is good when the students stay until 10:00 dancing and enjoy each other’s company and don’t just leave right after the crowning of the queen and king and the court. I would like to congratulate  Kate Irons  (Queen) and Joseph MacDonald ( King) Kyle Chorzewski ( Prince ) and Lyla Krol (Princess) on being selected by their peers for these special titles!

This is a close knit class and everyone seemed to have a good time together. Mr. Lucia said this was his 23th straight and final prom and he was very proud of the students for the respect they showed to their peers and the chaperones. They represented GMHS with class and dignity and I was proud to be in their presence and enjoy this experience with them on such an important night in their lives!

Oh to be young again… but since that is not going to happen, it was so much fun for me to see the world through their eyes for that one night. Having the chance to experience their youthful exuberance and happiness at just sharing time with their friends warmed my heart!

Prom 2018 is in the books! Now onto the senior banquet at the China Blossom and graduation on June 2nd. Did I say how much I enjoy the senior activities?  Best time of the year!
