T.E.A.C.H. Prom/Junior Ring Dance/Alumni Class Reunion
Dear T.E.A.C.H families,
We are so grateful for your patience and are excited to announce we are able to postpone the T.E.A.C.H prom. Our new date is Friday, July 31, 2020. As we continue to monitor the current status of the coronavirus, we are implementing the following:
All ticket sales will remain suspended until June 10 as we follow Governor Northam’s current order. If restrictions are lifted and prom is to continue on July 31, 2020, we will post how tickets can be purchased. Ticket price will remain at $75.
The 2nd voluntary dress check, 4/17/20, is cancelled. Further plans for dress checks will be posted on our website and social media.
If you have already purchased a ticket and unfortunately are unable to attend this new date, please contact the prom coordinators listed below and a full refund will be issued.
Prom age guideline is now revised to include youth that will be 15 by July 31, 2020.

Dresses must conform to the Prom guidelines listed in detail through the link below. If dresses do not conform, attendees may be asked to leave or wear a Beach Breakers t-shirt for the duration of the Prom. *New this year* It will be the responsibility of the Prom attendee, guest and parents/guardians to ensure dresses meet the dress guidelines listed here. Two voluntary dress checks will be organized by the Prom committee for the convenience of the attendees. Ladies are encouraged to go to a dress check to make sure their dress conforms to the guidelines so that they will be allowed to go to the Prom.
****Prom Coordinators highly encourage any attendee that may have a question about her dress to come to one of the two scheduled dress checks. If unable to attend the dress checks, feel free to send clear and full view pictures of the dress to Mrs. Teri Mustard (757-676-3811) or Mrs. Melissa Caldwell (757-822-4380) and the Prom Coordinators will get back with you as soon as possible. For email inquiries, use this email: email@example.com. Remember, if your dress fails to meet and maintain these guidelines during the prom, you will be required to purchase a Beach Breakers t-shirt ($10) to be worn over your dress.****

Fun Things About Your Ring
Did you know, According to Amy Vanderbilt’s Complete Book of Etiquette, the ring should always be worn so that the insignia faces the wearer when his or her arm is outstretched for as long as the wearer is in school; upon graduation, the ring should be turned around so that the ring faces outward, signifying that the graduate has left school and has entered the world.
Now a fun thing to do with your ring is put it on your right hand ring finger so that the insignia faces the you when your arm is outstretched and find special people to take a turn in turning the ring for a total of 17 times ( for the year that you are graduating which is 2017) leaving the LAST turn for someone special to turn it for you on graduation day. Then you will take the ring off and fip it to have it face towards the world to signify you are a graduate!
