Welcome to KSSB Prom – Spring 2019
Spring is here and that means the Prom is right around the corner. It is the time of year when high school students dress in their most elegant gowns and dapper tuxedo suits. Ever wonder when this tradition began?
The spring prom is a tradition going back to the late 1800’s when college students met for an evening of dining, dancing, socializing and to practice social etiquette. By the 1940’s the prom had moved from colleges to high schools. Over the years, the style of clothing, music and dance changes, but students across the country and at KSSB continue to enjoy an evening full of fun and special memories.
The KSSB Prom was held at the Secret Garden, a beautiful venue created by Russ Lawrence. After stepping through the doorway guests are engulfed in a Fairy Tale world of soothing waterfalls, aromatic flowers, and beautiful trees with lights twinkling through the branches. In this venue, like past generations, students build memories to remember for years to come. This is the fourth year that Mr. Lawrence has provided a night of dinner, dancing and countless memories for our students, staff, and families at no cost to anyone in attendance. His thoughtfulness and generosity are amazing and KSSB is lucky to have such a friend and benefactor!!!
