As the weather becomes warmer and the school year comes to an end, the prom season begins. 
On Friday, May 17th, Medway High School hosted its annual junior and senior prom at the Four Points Sheraton in Norwood. As a gift to the class of 2024, the junior class planned and organized the prom. With careful details such as napkins and flowers showcasing Medway’s navy and white colors, this prom was truly one to remember. 
This year, there was an influx of red and green dresses, and instead of the traditional corsage, many girls opted for the popular prom bouquet. Most men wore the traditional suit and boutonnière with ties and bow ties that spanned a color scheme from red to purple. Prior to the event, while taking photos, parents shouting “you look wonderful!” made everyone feel as amazing as they looked. 
At the venue, a wide dance floor waited for the crowd to light up the night with some dancing. Everyone got to dance with tracks ranging from classics of ABBA to modern pop from Dua Lipa. A pasta bar, burger bar, and taco bar were the main course for the guests, with a sundae bar for dessert. Towards the end of the night, some slow songs were played as students and their dates rushed onto the dance floor to get that perfect prom moment. 
While the junior class is sad to see their senior friends go, one last party made it seem as though they were never leaving at all.
