The Class of 2017 has put a great deal of time and effort into planning this very special celebration. It is critical for us to join together to reinforce the idea with our students that there is no need to abuse alcohol or drugs to have a good time on Prom night. Chaperones at both Prom and After-Prom will report any students found using drugs or alcohol at either event. Due to Prom and After-Prom being official, school-sponsored events, school rules will be in effect and disciplinary actions will be taken.

A meeting with all students attending Prom will be held on Tuesday, April 18 during the 8:55 a.m. PRT in the gym to discuss these expectations. Should parents have any questions regarding any part of the evening, please call Dean Adams at 317.524.7157. 

Admission to After-Prom is free and students who choose not to attend Prom may still attend After-Prom. Students not attending Prom but interested in attending After-Prom, must see Mr. Keele in the Learning Center to fill out an After-Prom form. Festivities include a DJ, inflatables, dancing, prizes, and great food. Most students bring a duffel bag and change of clothes; these bags will be numerically tagged and checked. Hangers and plastic dry cleaning bags will be available, and students can plan to change out of their Prom clothes at Brebeuf. 

Parents, please share the contents of this message with your child and have a conversation specifically establishing your expectations and their responsibilities. We also request that Brebeuf Jesuit parents neither plan nor permit parties that compete with this special event. We join you in looking forward to seeing our upperclassmen spruced up and enjoying the event. Many thanks as we work together to keep those we love safe and happy on this special night.
