Kudos to PTSO offering post-prom party

Just received the press release announcing that the Saratoga Springs High School Parent-Teacher-Student Organization will host the eighth annual Post Prom Party from midnight to 3 a.m. May 16, following the May 15 junior-senior prom.

Some kids will turn their noses up at something organized by adults. I think it's a great idea to offer, as the release states, "a fun and safe alternative to other post-prom activities" for students and their dates.

The PTSO is seeking donations, 100 percent of which goes toward the event. Monetary donations can be made to: SSHS PTSO, 1 Blue Streak Blvd., Saratoga Springs, N.Y., 12866. Donated items, such as door prizes and food, are also welcome, and arrangements can be made for pick-up.

Here's the rest of the info from the release:
Eligible students can attend even if they don’t go to the prom. Advance tickets will be available for $5 each when prom tickets go on sale or at the door for $7. Raffle prizes include tickets to the Great Escape, movie tickets, I-pods, a digital camera, mini recorders, gas gift certificates, video game systems, and more. The goal is for each student to go home with a prize.

For more information, contact Bonnie Nicolosi at 587-4272 or
