Important Letter from SHS
Parents whose students have purchased tickets, or are attending prom as the guest of another student, should have received a letter via email from Tim Kenney, Marie Schneider and Sarah Rock.  Please read it carefully. This should be a fabulous and safe evening for our kids!  Click here for a copy of the letter.

Grand March
The Grand March is an opportunity for parents to view the students as they enter the ballroom – you won’t want to miss this opportunity to see the teens all dressed up and all grown up.
  • The Grand March begins at 8:00, Parents may arrive NO EARLIER than 7:45
  • Tickets to view the Grand March cost $5 each and must be purchased in advance.
  • The last day to purchase tickets is THURSDAY
  • Allow enough time to find parking – please do NOT use the parking lot, as we want it to be available for the teens.

The Editor’s Answers to some FAQ’s re. the Grand March
  • No, you will not be the ONLY parent there.  There will be 100’s of parents, and really – what would be the point of having a march if no one watched it?
  • The venue is lovely, the kids look lovely – yes, in my opinion, this is well worth the $5 admission fee
  • Yes, some people do bring grandparents or siblings
  • Your child can purchase your ticket for you - Thursday is the last day.
Photographs
In addition to the photos that will be taken before the kids leave the house, parents are welcome to bring their cameras to the Grand March.  There will also be a professional photographer taking photos during the March.  The professional photos will be available online after prom at http://www.lifetouchevents.com/. The password will be SHOREWOODPROM2015.

And Another Note from the Editor
If your child will be attending prom, please make sure you’ve read the letter that was emailed home   regarding the logistics and timing of prom and post prom.  Prom should be a memorable and SAFE evening for our teens.  Help them to stay safe by making sure you know their plans for both before and after prom.  They’re good kids, and while any kid can make a mistake once (and most will) - they are less likely to do so when they know we are paying attention.  Remind your kids to drive safely, (including not texting – EVER – while driving), to wear their seat belts, to require their passengers to wear seat belts, to refrain from distracting the driver if they are a passenger and to call you if they feel uncomfortable or unsafe – at ANY time during this or any other evening.  Yeah… they’ll roll their eyes at you, but deep down, they’re listening.  Network with other parents to ensure that all activities are being properly chaperoned.  And keep in mind one of my favorite expressions for parents of teens - “trust but verify”.
 
That being said, if your child is attending prom – enjoy the moment, as you’ll no doubt be thinking about how quickly they’ve grown from adorable infants to fine young adults.
