Just under 100 SLA students attended this year’s prom at the Legacy Ballroom in Phoenix which for many was their final school fling with high school friends. Dressed up for the occasion, this year’s crowd was ready to party at the end of the school year but remained respectful and polite throughout the evening.  Students had a lot of fun, had a delicious meal and soft drinks, danced away the night and had a chance to spend some quality time with friends before they graduated.

The SLA teaching staff and principal, Dr. Greg Fowler, mingled with the students and their dates and led some of the night’s dancing. The final event of the evening was the crowning of the 2019 Prom King and Queen and their court voted on by the students.

Prom 2019 will be an event that students will remember long into their adulthood and the school’s student counsel advisor, Alice Doan (HR) and guidance counselor Michelle Harris made the night as special as possible for the students.  Dr. Fowler said, “These are great kids. They had a good time and the evening had no issues. It could not have been a better event!”
