CSHS experiences an Arabian night

Saturday, April 16, juniors and seniors of Conway Springs High School got to dress up, grab a date and roll up to the high school in style. Starting with Prom Preview, students showed off their attire, their dates and their rides. After taking pictures with family, friends and classmates, students enjoyed the “Arabian Nights” theme set up for them by the Steering Committee and dance all night long until it was time for After Prom.

Steering Committee planned all year, decorating the commons area the day before prom.

“I thought the juniors did a really good job putting everything together in a rush,” senior Liz Berntsen said. “I think everyone had a lot of fun.”

After the dinner and dance, juniors and seniors went to the South YMCA in Wichita to celebrate After Prom. A variety of fun activities were open for attendees, including swimming, volleyball, basketball and arts and crafts activities. In addition to activities, there were artificial tattoos, a photo booth and a wide variety of snacks.

“I really enjoyed playing basketball at the Y,” junior Dawson Tarrant said. “It was a lot of fun.”

To end the night, students headed back to the high school, where they found out who won the grand prizes. Prizes varied from gift cards to flat screen TV’s. Students who won prizes were more excited than those who didn’t.

“I felt like seniors should be the ones winning grand prizes,” senior Romi Huggins said. “But, it was a good time overall.”

Steering Committee put together the “Arabian Nights” themed prom on April 16. “There were a lot of people getting involved, dancing, and having a good time,” junior and steering committee member Janae Pauly said. “That's exactly what we wanted to happen.” The dinner and dance were held at the high school, but the students were then bussed to the YMCA for the after prom activities. At the YMCA, students had access to basketball and volleyball courts, racquetball, a swimming pool, and other small games where they could win raffle prizes.
