Every senior is looking forward to having the perfect prom to end their last year of high school. This year’s momentous occasion will be held at Seasons in Washington Township on June 7th.

Class advisor Ms. Rosalinda Mulcahy described the process of choosing a venue as relatively pleasant, facing only one major issue in the process. She, and fellow advisor Mrs. Michele Miskovich, set out to find a venue that met their criteria and was available for a Friday in June. Mulcahy explained that many venues were either too pricey or were only available Tuesday through Thursday due to June being a popular wedding month.

They wanted prom to be relatively close to all three towns. Having our best interests in mind, our advisors and class representatives compiled a list of matching venues and scouted which was appealing. Mulcahy explained that ultimately the final decision came down to the grounds of the Seasons being more beautiful than the other venues.

Mulcahy and Miskovich ask the senior class to prepare for some upcoming fundraising opportunities to help offset the cost of the DJ, venue, and decorations. If any students have ideas for fundraisers, they may email their class advisors using the links above.

"Given the outcome of cotillion [the advisors and her peers] wanted to apply what they learned from planning that event to making prom an enjoyable and memorable event,” said Choudhury. "As an officer I really hope the work the other officers and I put in pays off.”

Ms. Mulcahy has been teaching at Passaic Valley for roughly thirty years and has been the advisor of three graduating classes, planning a total of three proms. She also recalls attending her own prom in 1986 and will remember the special night forever. She and Mrs. Miskovich look to provide a similarly memorable experience for current seniors.
