After Prom Party 2018 A Success!

After prom
While Lansing High School students took over the dance floor at the Ithaca Hotel for the LHS Prom 2018, volunteers and event organizers were busy at The Rink transforming the space for the LHS After Prom Party. Just like previous years, the transformation was nothing short of impressive.

A total of 155 students – over 80 percent of the junior and senior class – entered The Rink for the After Prom Party to find that it was given a complete makeover for the evening. Like previous years, the facility was set up with a DJ, a tent with furniture inside, poker and black jack tables, a photo booth, a movie theatre, and much more. New this year was an escape room, an obstacle course, a Netflix binge watching room, and a giant slide – all of which students enjoyed throughout the night. The two turf fields were set up with an obstacle course and lawn games. When they were looking to cool off, students stopped over at the ice skating rink, where they participated in open skating and games.

Along with the numerous activities available for students throughout the night, there was plenty of food and snacks available throughout the evening, from pizza and subs to an ice cream sundae bar. All food for the party was generously donated and funded through donations from local businesses and community members. Planning for the event begins in January each year.

“The event was another success for the Lansing students and our community,” said Melissa Ferris, an event organizer for the After Prom Party. “But it was a success due to the support of our community and our volunteers.”

With the support of the Lansing Bobcats Sports Booster Club and the generous donations of SADD, local businesses, parents, teachers, and community members, the After Prom Party is completely free for LHS students to attend. The After Prom Party is open to all 11th and 12th grade students in good standing at LHS and their prom guests. Students do not need to attend prom to attend the After Prom Party. The After Prom Party starts at 11:00 p.m. and goes until 3:00 a.m.

After Prom is a part of the Sports Boosters. Looking to get involved in After Prom next year? Please contact Melissa Ferris for more details.
