dinner will be served at 6:45 pm. At the end of the meal, a special tribute
to the senior class and resolution of the murder mystery will take place.
Dancing will follow until 9:30 pm. We are pleased to host Christian DJ Seth

Invites: Pick up your special invitation with detective magnifying glass
at Tuesday classes or after the Grand Finale.

Price: Tickets will be $30 per person and on sale from March 30 -
April 12 at Tuesday classes or via email. All homeschoolers in high school
(grades 9 - 12) will be invited and each student may bring one
non-homeschool guest and/or several homeschool guests (friends can be male
or female). Students from other homeschool groups are always welcome.
Parents are also encouraged to come for the dinner and dance and enjoy the

Dance Practice: Paul and Chris Stickler will be offering a FREE dance
this weekend. Watch for details and come practice your waltz, swing, and
fox trot!

Couples: The formalness of this occasion is what makes it special-not
whether students come with a date or not. We recognize and fully respect
the courtship goals of many families, and this event is not focused on
pressuring anyone to date or form couples. In fact, the majority of
students came without a date the last two years! Our Prom atmosphere
strives to encourage conversation and mingling among all students. The
dance will include a variety of line dances, group actions, and chart
toppers from other eras, as well as the Mother-Son and Father-Daughter

What to Wear: We endorse modesty and recommend wearing your best clothes.
Tuxedoes and long formals are not strictly required, but always welcome.
Cinderella's Closet will be open this Saturday April 9 from 9:30 a.m. to 3
p.m. Junior League members will assist the girls in choosing one gown with
shoes and any accessories for free at the AFL-CIO Community Services Store,
1203 N. 6th Street (off St. Joseph Avenue).
