It's a perennial socialization question for homeschoolers everywhere. Here in Northern Virginia, it's been answered beautifully for years. We have a great prom! In case you are a local Catholic homeschooled teen and you haven't heard, this is your prom!(And even if you're not local, it's worth the trip;-) Here's the scoop:
Be sure and mark Saturday, April 26 (6:30-11:00) on your calendar!
This year we will again be having the Prom at the Knights of Columbus Barn,401 West Holly Avenue, Sterling, VA.The price will be $65.00 per person,with the first deposit of $30.00 is due NOW and the final payment of $35.00 due on Friday, March 14th. If you would like to attend please email either Mrs. Cunningham or Mrs. Jacobeen so we can reserve a spot for you. (The Barn requires 50% by mid February and the final amount one month prior, so these dates are necessary.)We have tried as hard as we could to keep the price down. The night will include photos (starting @ 6:30), a dinner buffet and dancing (via DJ), until 11:00 p.m. All homeschoolers are allowed to invite two guests of the same sex if they would like. If you are inviting a guest(s), please see that they understand and agree to our guidelines (included in this announcement). We are also including a Reservation Form to be used by everyone (guests included) and sent along with your first deposit. Please make checks payable to “Marsha Jacobeen”, and mail all forms and deposits to Mrs. Marsha Jacobeen @ 4330 Moylan Lane, Fairfax, VA;22033. Parents wishing to be chaperones are welcome Just let us know (modify the reservation form) and send in your deposits as well.
