LIVINGSTON, NJ — After receiving early dismissals on Wednesday night in order to primp, this year’s junior class partook in a time-honored tradition—attending the Livingston High School Junior Prom, held at The Grove in Cedar Grove on April 20.
The juniors attended pre-prom parties, met at the school for photos and waved to the parents, families, friends, teachers, members of the school’s TV studio crew, and LHS administrators that crowded at the "red carpet" to take pictures as the teens embarked on buses that whisked them away to the main event.
According to LHS Principal Mark Stern, the prom is a rite of passage that administrators and ogranizers take seriously each year in order to ensure that the students have a safe, fun-filled evening.
"Being the youngest of four kids made prom so much better," said junior Bernadette Callaghan, whose three older siblings graduated from Livingston High School in 2011, 2013 and 2014. "After years of watching my siblings go to prom, it's finally my turn."
Fellow junior Alex Franchino, a TAPinto Livingston intern, reported back that while dressing up is fun, being surrounded by friends and classmates made Wednesday a wonderful night to remember.
As is tradition, Lors Photography took both couple and candid photos throughout the night, offering to provide all students with a free 5x7 couple photo. More 2016 LHS Junior Prom photos will be uploaded as they become available.
