Junior prom 2024 preparations: What to expect from a night to remember

Rebecca Mestel
Each student received a souvenir prom ticket received at the Student Activities window upon purchase. Students do not need this to check into prom.

Many Juniors have been curious about what they need to know regarding their very first prom. As such an event creates memories to remember, students are eager to create life-long memories and are left wondering about the food options, venue, busses, activities, and what to bring. 

“They’ll get here [Amador Valley High School] at around 5:30, and then we’ll have buses take us to the venue,” said Junior class secretary Kaitlin Burleson (‘25).

This year, the class of 2025’s prom is located at the California Academy of Sciences. Students need to bring their ID cards to check in and must take all their belongings from the bus into the venue with them. There will be a coat check available for students to store belongings.  Despite the entertainment of  dancing, photos, and exhibitions, another essential prom item is food.

“We have a lot of really good food options, like crepe bars with different options, a mac and cheese bar, an ice cream taco bar, and I think a few other things.” said Burleson.

All food and drink expenses are covered in the ticket price. Tickets can be purchased once students have their packets signed off on. Located at the Student Activities windows, tickets can be bought with cash or check only.

Students and their guests are allowed full access to the California Academy of Sciences throughout the night, with a limit on the aquarium for about one and a half hours. They can go explore exhibits such as the Planetarium, Rainforest, and the Natural History Museum. Students have many options throughout the night, like taking photos, trying all of the different foods, visiting animals, like an alligator named Claude, or visiting the free-flying birds and butterflies at the Rainforest exhibit.
