Click It for Tickets

When someone thinks about prom, their first thoughts are of glittering dresses or limos. However, for the first time, students may start to relate prom with their computers, now that they have been required to buy their prom tickets online.

“The decision [to sell tickets online] was made to help streamline the process and eliminate the waiting for kids to get tickets. Everything is going online, so we just wanted to make it as compatible as possible,” Mr. Tim Powers, Assistant Principal, said.

This is not the first time that the school has seen this method used, though; a similar system was used earlier in the year for the Winter Formal dance.

“[Students] can already buy sports tickets and yearbooks online. We’ve had issues with prom tickets, but we’re headed in that direction,” Mr. Powers said.

Because of the issues that the online process has faced, tickets will also be sold after school from 2:15-3:00 p.m. on Monday, April 15 and Tuesday, April 16, and before school from 6:30 to 7:00 a.m. from Wednesday, April 16 to Friday, April 19. Students are still required to fill out the online registry form, found on the school’s main website, before buying tickets.
