Dear Junior/Senior Students and Parents,
After weeks of brainstorming ideas, weighing options, and working around the current restrictions, we are excited to share that Joliet Central is hosting Prom 2021 on campus! The event takes place on Saturday, May 15, 2021 at Joliet Central High School from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. We are thrilled to offer this prom experience.
Prom Experience 2021, with the theme, “Red Carpet," will transform the school into a red carpet event. "Prom Squad" groups of up to 100 students travel to areas inside and outside the magically decorated building. Students can select their Prom Squad groups by signing up online. This year’s prom is for Joliet Central juniors and seniors ONLY. Unfortunately, outside guests can NOT attend.
This magical prom experience includes a professional DJ, swag bag, photo booth, interactive games, and photo opportunities. Students may take individual pictures without a mask, but students must wear a mask at all other times. Feel free to “Dress to Impress” or come “Comfy Casual.” Just remember, the school dress code still applies.
