It is hard to believe, but Prom is upon us once again. Last year I was torn between whether to wear a powder blue cummerbund or a paisley vest. The struggle is still real. :-) The dance is on Saturday evening at The Ohio State University. You know by now that if it was up to me we'd be dancing out the evening to Air Supply and a little Earth, Wind, and Fire; however, I think the music selection will be a little more palatable to the kids. All that being said, please know that first and foremost I want our students to have a great evening. I promise to be realistic about our students’ definition of fun at a dance, but at the same time I expect them to exercise good judgment before, during, and after this school-sponsored event. Although we have every reason to believe this will be the case, please help us in reinforcing the message that the use of any illegal substance or being in possession of such items poses a great safety risk for our kids and could result in a school suspension, a code violation if applicable, and the involvement of the police. Nothing good comes from making such choices or being around those who do. It is our continued hope that everyone involved has a fun and safe evening.
Have a great weekend!
