Hopewell High School invited exceptional students from Hough High School to join their exceptional students for a special prom held in the Hopewell Media Center on May 24. The theme was "Life is a Masquerade."
Nearly 50 students and their parents attended the second annual prom for students with disabilities who participate in the Specialized Academic Curriculum/Autism program. Although these students have an opportunity to attend their schools' regular prom, many struggle from social, economic and sensory issues that prevent their participation. The staff in the SAC/AU department at Hopewell High wanted to make sure these students could experience a prom with a disc jockey, photographer, flowers, dinner and court crowning ceremony.
