LIVINGSTON, NJ - The Livingston High School Class of 2015 was given red carpet treatment in the campus parking lot on Thursday in the hour leading up to their senior prom. Students, parents and friends gathered to see the seniors off as they departed for The Royal Manor in Garfield, NJ to enjoy a night full of music, laughter and inevitable paparazzi.

“I have been waiting for this night the entire year,” said Sammi Gold.

“I love seeing everyone all dressed up,” said Alex Kahn.

As was to be expected, based on the hot and humid senior-prom weather of the last several years, the weather in Livingston neared 90 degrees on Thursday, as the smiling prom-goers departed.

Many staff members were on hand to help organize the couples inside the school and guide them down the “red carpet” to the chaperoned busses that would transport them to the prom.

“Few rites of passage are more treasured than the prom,” said Livingston High School Principal Mark Stern. “We are prepared to ensure all participants a safe evening filled with fun and lasting memories.”

Among the crowd of people who attended the traditional send-off celebration were some teary-eyed parents who said they couldn’t help but smile at the thought of their firstborns making it to this important milestone.

LHS Class of 1983 alumna Pam Goldstein said she was especially excited to see the seniors who attended Riker Hill Elementary School and Beth Shalom with her son, Harrison, all dressed and grown up.

For many parents, the 2015 prom was just another reminder that their seniors will be graduating high school and packing for college in just a few short weeks.

“Going through all these milestones with my firstborn is extremely emotional for me,” said Goldstein. “It is all incredibly exciting and we are cherishing every minute.”

On June 25, the same seniors who were seen off to prom will be embarking on the next phase in their lives when they receive their Livingston High School Class of 2015 diplomas on Thursday.
