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
“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
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.

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!
