PROM SAVE THE DATE - Get excited! Prom is quickly approaching, and the Somers Class of 2021 is preparing to celebrate our seniors like stars! Seniors will arrive to a red-carpet entrance fit for royalty. After they are checked in, they will enter our gorgeous tent on Primrose field. From there they will enjoy a night of photo opportunities, dazzling lights, and of course, a fantastic DJ to play all their favorite songs. The night would not be complete without individually packaged, gourmet meals of their choice. Prepare to have an amazing, beautiful, and safe prom!

Attention Seniors! In lieu of the senior apple picking trip, the class board is planning a pumpkin painting event on Thursday, October 29th (P1, White Day).
