Hundreds of JProm attendees spent time dancing in the fire themed ballroom.

With the theme of ‘Fire and Ice’, this year’s Junior Prom was a great success, with a turnout of over 500 students.
Hosted at the Westin, the prom featured two ballrooms, each themed as either fire or ice. The lighting, a balloon arch and an ice sculpture all added to the theme and set the ambiance for the night.
Attendees could enjoy listening to the DJ on the dance floor, along with a 360° photo booth. In addition, members of Eastside were present to take candid pictures of those enjoying the night. Dinner and dessert were also served, with the option of chicken parm, steak, penne alla vodka, cake, brownies and cookies.
All attendees were required to stay until 9pm and were given fire and ice themed cups upon leaving.
“JProm was amazing and the best one I have ever attended,” said School-wide Class President Chris Shin (‘23), who took pictures for Eastside. He also shared his admiration for the extent to which the decorations matched the theme.
The event would not have been possible without the help of the Class of ‘24 Student Government Advisors Mrs. Rinehart and Ms. Mills, who helped organize and plan the event with the Class of ‘24 student government body.
“Seeing everyone have a good time together made all of the work we’ve put in this year feel worth it,” said Class of ‘24 Vice President Usra Aslam (‘24).
After the success of JProm this year at the Westin, the venue has become a key option for the Class of 2025’s junior prom.
