Lazar Middle School Senior Citizen Prom

April 23, 2014 at 9:15 AM

MONTVILLE, NJ – Approximately eighty senior citizens from the Montville Township Senior House are expected to attend the Robert R. Lazar Middle School’s “Senior Prom” on Thursday, April 24 at 5 p.m.

The “Senior Prom” is a dinner dance hosted by Lazar’s eighth grade Character Education Advisory Group. The twenty-five students of the Advisory Group plan, research and organize the community project as an opportunity for middle school students and senior citizens to socialize.

“Black & White” is the 2014 theme. The decoration and invitation committees designed “Black & White” invitations and will transform the school with classic decorations. All students will assist with set-up and preparation for the spring dinner dance.

Music will be provided by the Robert R. Lazar Middle School Jazz Band and Flute Choir. The Advisory Group’s entertainment committee worked with the music department to research music and develop a playlist based on the kind of music that would have been popular when the senior citizens were middle school age. Together the entertainment committee and the music department have prepared for a retro evening of 1950’s and 1960’s classic tunes. Knowing that the seniors also enjoy line dances, the committee has also scheduled many line dancing songs.

A full course dinner is planned including a variety of desserts made by the food committee.

The twenty-five students have been working on the “Senior Prom” all year. Everyone will be involved in preparing for Thursday’s dance. During the event, students will also serve as greeters and seaters, beverage servers, and appetizer servers. In addition, all students will participate in dinner service, dessert service and the final cleanup.

Anticipation for the “Senior Prom” has been growing all week.

“It’s unbelievable!” said Principal Sharon Carr of the Lazar Senior Citizen Prom.  “It’s quite the extravaganza!”
