WESTFIELD – Westfield Technical Academy prom committee members Ksenia Zinchenko, Paige Bixby and Jessica Bush have announced the plans for senior prom and other activities to celebrate the Class of 2021.
Other members of the committee include seniors Evan Ploof and Sam MacMunn, and class advisor Alison Curto.
Senior prom, entitled “Under the Stars,” is scheduled for May 21 at Shaker Farms Country Club from 6 to 10 p.m. Tickets cost $50, and went on sale in the lunchroom on April 26.
Prom this year will be open to seniors only, as there is a capacity of 100 people at Shaker Farms. Ticket sales from April 26 through April 30 will only be open to the senior class. Beginning April 30, ticket sales will open to guests that seniors want to bring.
“We are going for a very romantic and low light environment. We will be having music and food to go along with this event and the doors are open to all Westfield Tech seniors,” said Bush.
“Prom is most definitely something every girl dreams of going to, dressing up in a pretty dress (or tux) and dancing the night away surrounded by all their closest friends and possibly a significant other,” said Bixby, adding, “While the class of 2021 has already missed out on so much, we needed to give them something.”
Other events planned include the Senior Picnic, scheduled for May 26 at High Meadow, and Senior Sunrise, planned for the last day of shop on May 28.
“Sam and I are also planning a senior sunrise, to be on our last day of shop May 28th — donuts will be provided! We are just hoping that people are willing to wake up early enough to come,” Bixby said, adding that the Senior sunrise was MacMunn’s idea. “I kind of tagged along in the helping of planning it. It’s going to be a bittersweet morning for sure, seeing the class I’ve spent 4 years with on our last day of school.”
