Dancing Through A City Of Stars


Students were blown away by the fun environment and strong winds at the 2021 PRHS Prom.

Though it was a cold and windy night, and there were some mixed feelings about the event, students enjoyed dancing through a city of stars and spending time with friends and other alumni.

PRHS faculty along with the junior and senior class elected officers have been preparing for a “covid prom” since May of 2020 when that year’s prom was canceled With covid restriction and time constraints about 70 students purchased tickets and attended the 2021 prom themed “City Of Stars” on May 1.

“We have listened to all suggestions and tried to make it as fun as possible without risking a mass quarantine due to exposure. I can’t wait to start planning for next year as well.” – Jennifer Bedrosian

To make this year’s prom more exciting they had corn hole games to win prizes such as a brand new Chromebook (won by Zoey Mayo, 12) and new AirPods (won by Jennifer Armstrong, 12). There were many changes and difficult circumstances that affected this year’s prom, but the people in charge just wanted to give students a fun night to remember their high school experience in a positive light.

Student Perspective:

“I absolutely loved it. It was great being able to hang out with my friends and see a bunch of people. The teachers were super happy and everyone was having fun which was nice. I thought it was great that they raffled off prizes. Since it was windy we were able to move into the hanger but overall it was an absolute blast and it was great that the teachers weren’t making the kids keep their masks on since we were in ‘pods’. I loved having the dance at the Warbirds Museum and I hope they do more there!” -Senior Katherine Reid

“It was a lot of fun! I know it was very hard to plan due to a lot of coronavirus restrictions, but I am thankful to all staff who helped create a wonderful prom regardless of the current circumstances we are in!” -Junior Cecilia Martinez

“I had a lot of fun for the most part, but I left early because it got really cold and windy. The school provided heaters but they didn’t keep me warm enough to stay. Rather than getting the most fun out of dancing and the actual prom, I had more fun getting ready and seeing my friends for dinner.” -Junior Alyssa Thompson

“It was a good effort But it was thrown together last minute there were no decorations they had no prom 2021 backdrop for photos it was outside in the windy cold music was not that great and there were like no people there.” -Senior Lane Heer

“I thought it was pretty fun! The wind was a bit annoying considering how strong it ended up getting, but the music selection and being with friends made up for it.” -Senior Brendon Mendoza

Prom Royalty:

The prom royalty were chosen by students in attendance through paper ballots, “We are taking it back to the old school where the voting happens at the prom and is selected by the students that are there.  We will do a traditional paper ballot.” Jennifer Bedrosian said
