Prom Scheduled For May 11th
Linn-Mar High School Prom will take place Saturday, May 11, from 8:00 -11:00 pm.
The Grand March of all students (and their dates) will begin in the Auditorium at 7:30 pm. Post Prom will begin at 11:30 pm.
Tickets for the Grand March and Prom will be on sale in the South Commons from 7:35 am – 8:25 am from Monday, May 6 through Thursday, May 9. Prom tickets can be purchased by Seniors only on Monday, May 6 and Tuesday, May 7. Juniors will be able to buy tickets on Wednesday, May 8 and Thursday, May 9. Advanced Prom ticket prices are $15 per person or $30 per couple. Tickets may also be purchased at the door the night of Prom for $20 per person and $35 per couple. Due to the limited number of seats in the Auditorium, reserved tickets for seating will be used.
Grand March tickets are $3 each. A student must purchase tickets for Prom in order to be able to purchase Grand March tickets. Reserved Auditorium Grand March seats will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis, starting with Seniors only on Monday, May 6 and Tuesday, 7. Juniors will have the opportunity to purchase remaining reserved Auditorium Grand March tickets starting on Wednesday, May 8. Any Sophomores attending Prom or any students wishing to view the grand march may purchase tickets on Thursday, May 9. A student does NOT need to buy Prom tickets to get Grand March tickets that they purchase on Thursday, May 9. If you have a conflict, due to AP exams or MOC, you may send a note with another student to purchase tickets in your name. Grand March tickets are not needed to participate in Grand March, they are for family members/friends who wish to watch the Grand March.
Students will enter at Door #13 with tickets. Please make sure you have identification. You will not be admitted without an ID and will be sent home, so please don’t forget!
Parents are asked to enter at Door #1 (Auditorium entrance). Doors will not be opened for parents until 7:00 pm.
There will be no admittance to the auditorium after the Grand March starts at 7:30 pm. Please look at your tickets carefully to ensure your tickets say Grand March and are not your child’s prom tickets. Your Grand March tickets will have a reserved seat number on them and you will need this to know which reserved seat you have.
Parents wishing to see the Grand March who does not have tickets can line up along the hallways beginning at 7:00 pm. Students and their dates will proceed past the overflow crowd in the hallways. The Grand March starts promptly at 7:30 pm. Remember – only those with a reserved ticket will be allowed in the Auditorium.
Students – the Grand March is for your parents. This is an elegant and formal event. Please no acting or drama skits under the arch. Walk out when your name is called, pause under the arch so your parents can take your picture and then exit the stage, down the stairs and out the auditorium via the marked path.
