After-Prom Parent Volunteers

Plans are underway for the 2018 Gilbert After-Prom party.  The After Prom Committee consisting of junior and senior parents has started some initial planning and invite interested parents to join this committee.  Feel free to attend and decide how you want to contribute.  Parents typically connect their interests and passions to a particular sub-committee.

The After-Prom party is an all-night event immediately following Prom that helps keep our kids safe by providing a fun night with food, raffle prizes, games and other entertainment including a hypnotist. It will be held at Gilbert High School on Saturday, April 21st, from 11:30 PM to 4:00 AM.

The After-Prom party is completely funded by generous donations from parents and business and community members. Thank you for your continued support!
