Prom is defined as a formal dance for the seniors and juniors at a high school, usually toward the end of the school year. “World of Romance” is the theme for this year’s Prom event at CHS.
Centralia High School’s 2019 Prom is on Saturday, May 4th, starting at 8 p.m. at East Annex. Valet parking for East Annex will be available. Events correlated with prom include the Grand March and Coronation. The Grand March will start at 7 p.m. in the high school gym. A professional photographer will be available before and after the Grand March to take pictures. Coronation will take place at East Annex at 10 p.m. In order to attend the crowning of the King and Queen (Coronation), parents of candidates must possess a ticket.
Another Prom event that is taking place is Project Prom. This function will be hosted by Centralia Backs the Blue at the Centralia Recreation Center. Project Prom provides a safe place for students to go after they leave Prom. Activities for Project Prom include games, pizza, drinks and many excellent door prizes that will be given away at the end of the evening. Project Prom takes place from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m.
