At the 2023 Prom, Class of 2023 graduates Joe Marlo and Will Barry stay at the edge of the main floor to do their dancing. Because the small dance floor was the most crowded area, many students gathered around the edges with friends or in small groups.

Lafayette Prom will take place May 4, at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. The doors will open at 7:30 p.m.  According to Assistant Principal Mandy Lewis, it will officially be over at 10:30 p.m. 

Tickets are no longer being sold, and won’t be sold at the door.

The hotel will provide free parking for all attendees.  

Before going in, students will have to check in at the registration table, with a digital or printed version of their ticket. 

“We open doors at 7 [p.m.] and then students can come in. There’s an area where we have drinks set up and pictures. Interstate Studios will be there with the photo booth,” Lewis said. 

The drinks and photo booth will be free.

Dinner will be served at 7:45 p.m. and is expected to last an hour. During dinner, students are asked to remain in their purchased seat, as meal choices will be served according to seating assignments. Students are free to move after dinner.

Dancing will take place at 8:30 p.m. Any students arriving after 8:30 p.m. will not be guaranteed dinner. 

“Some of the tables will be taken away to create a bigger dance floor, because of the amount of students we have. Music starts around 8:30 [p.m.], and dancing around 8:45 [p.m.],” Lewis said. 

The Prom King and Queen will be announced between 9:30 p.m. and 10 p.m.

The Prom Court has been decided and King and Queen voting closed Wednesday.

The nominees for Queen are seniors Lana Dauw, Patty Kirtley, Sierra Sachtleben, Megan Skaggs and Lily Smith.  The nominees for King are seniors Landon Griesbach, Eshwar Murali,  Jack Robeson, Kyle Schwallie, and Chris Songco.

Both Eureka and Marquette will hold their Proms on the same night, taking place at the St.Louis Union Station and the Hilton Hotel in Frontenac, respectively.
