2014 Prom 9

Update 9 Final -
King: Nick Ashline and Queen Caitlin Miller. As has become the custom the winners were chosen at random from the members of the court. A nice tradition since all the members of the court are very deserving. Thanks for tuning in all night. Thanks to all who helped make the evening such a success. Thanks to Mrs. Ashline and Mr. Miller for helping put on a wonderful night. Thanks Mr. Sandvig for the tunes. Thanks to the parents who were helping pick up the plants and flowers already. And if I forgot someone....thanks. It takes many wonderful people working together to make the prom memorable. Good night - and Happy Mother's Day to all. 

Update 8 - Mrs. Trombley caught her second wind and turned in some of the

2014 Prom 7

best pictures of the night. One of the first ones in this set is of Raven Bennet walking into the gym. She is also in another classic where she and Hannah Soulier are taking a break. I can't blame them. I know we need the warm weather and I am not complaining but it sure is hot in here. Also - I added direct links for the pictures in the column to the right if you want the full sized pictures. 

Update 6 - Is is so hot right now that we could use regular Hershey bars

2014 Prom 5

right from the wrappers for the chocolate fountain. There was a small lull in the action in the gym and just about everyone came out for a snack. Since it is already past her bedtime, Mrs. Trombley decided not to back into the gym for a bit and took quite a few pictures of students devouring the snacks. Finger licking good stuff.

Update 4 - Check out the great Prom souvenirs carved into wood plaques. Josh Trombley spent the better part of two days working on them. Each couple who registered ahead of time has one. It is a nice touch. The 

2014 Prom 3

other nice touch I see this year is the chocolate fountain. You read that right a chocolate fountain. It is a big hit indeed. Oreos dunked in chocolate. Fruit dunked in chocolate. Rice Krispies treats dunked in chocolate. I am getting hungry just typing this. 

Update 3 - I know - the posts are all over the place tonight. I am trying to keep all the pictures and stories in 

2014 Prom 2

one place for easier viewing. Mrs. Trombley is my roving photographer tonight. It is already past her bedtime but she loves all the dresses and seeing the different couples to see who came with who.One more thing - if you cannot open a set of pictures, please email me and I will check the permissions. I am having some weird problems right now and have been loading pictures differently.

Midsummer Nights - that is the theme for the prom for the Class of 2015 (that seems weird to type). I will have the usual great photographers patrolling the gym soon for pictures. I will most likely not get a chance to post anything until after I take care of the posed pictures. Remember that the coronation will not begin until 11:00 and we would appreciate people not show up before
Update 9 - This will most likely be the last batch of pictures until after the

2014 Prom 8

coronation. Please note that the coronation will be held until 11:00 PM and we are asking that people not arrive until around 10:50 please. We will be taking a class picture and setting up the court and preparing the gym so everyone can get a great view of the court and take some beautiful pictures of it all. Thanks for all who stayed up all night and kept an eye on the website. I hope you had fun tonight. And....sorry Canadiens fans. Thanks to Mrs. Trombley and Mrs. Gardiner for all the pictures. 

Update 7 - This time I have a great set of pictures from Mrs. Gardiner. She is

2014 Prom 6 Gardiner

wearing my favorite black dress. She and I have been to proms for over a decade now together. This one is a sad one for her because she did not have to get one of her daughters prepared for the prom but she is here and loving every minute of it. Also on duty are Mr. Miller, Mrs. Ashline, Mrs. Trombley and Mrs. Porter. Great crew as always. 

Update 5 -  In this set you can see the chocolate fountain as well as Mr.

2014 Prom 4

Miller being flash mobbed in an attempt to make him dance. I think me might dance if we played some REO Speedwagon or something. (Inside joke alert - he really prefers Joy Division) The typical line dance has already happened a few times and they did a great job. I heard the sounds of "I'll Be" by Edwin McCain. Love that song. 

Update 2 - Already almost all of the coats are off. It is hot and 

Prom - the gym pictures

humid. I am having a small problem with the picture uploads but I should have it fixed soon. Make sure you refresh your page to see the most recent pictures. There is another small problem - the hockey game between the Bruins and the Canadiens is distracting a few of the students.

For the hockey fans out there - Fun Facts

  • There are more than 2,200 different names engraved on the Stanley Cup, including players, coaches and owners of the Cup-winning teams.
