The WDC Junior Class is gearing up to host another amazing prom this year.  Prom will take place on April 16, 2016. 

All Juniors and Seniors had the opportunity to vote on a theme this year.  "Winter Wonderland" was the winning theme, with Paris coming in second! 

The Grand March will be held at the Wadena Memorial Auditorium, with the Prom dance to follow.  The Chemical-Free After Prom Party planning has not officially started, but the Maslowski Wellness Center is an option with our Prom attendants and chaperones renting out the entire place for the night!  Junior Parents are the backbone of this party, and are needed to make it happen! Stay tuned for more information, as the planning committee solidifies more details! For more information, contact Kim Stafki, Prom Advisor, at 632-2347.
