Remember PROM is this weekend. Seniors, your invitation is not a ticket. You must have a ticket to enter. See Mrs. Leaman or Mrs. Lindenmeyer as soon as possible to purchase and pick up your tickets. Tickets are free for seniors and $40 for juniors and all guests. Given that Prom will be held in downtown Champaign, please make sure to keep your doors locked, windows rolled up, and purses/wallets hidden from plain sight when at Prom.
