My goodness but you people dwell on the past. Get over it and think about the big picture. Did you stop to think of the economic impact on the local economy - from restaurants to hair and nail salons to florists and of course the bridal shops that are servicing both guys and gals? Kids spending that kind of money is sure appreciated by all of these businesses. But by doing all on the same night, kids will be forced to go out of town (for hair, nails, food) because there aren't enough appointments available, and the businesses that employ high school kids will be strapped for workers because all the high schoolers are at prom. When they're staggered, the kids from opposite schools are still available to fill shifts. And police are spread thin trying to cover all three on the same night. Get over your pasts and start thinking about others for once. It's better for business when the proms are spread out.

Prom does not need to be expensive. I went, and so did my children. It is only as expensive as one wants to spend... It was a good time and great memories were made! Thank you to all the volunteers who made it happen as I know it takes a lot of planning and work!!

Both my daughters went to prom both their junior and senior years. Both have since said it was a big waste of(my)money. So much for your theory -(guy with too long of a screen name to repeat).

Glad to hear my girls are growing up and have a better understanding of of the value of money. They have many better memories of their high school experience and don't need a one night party to validate their personal worth, beauty, or social acceptance.

catch22, spoken like a parent who's daughter didnt get asked maybe? Prom is something kids will remember for a lifetime, and contrary to belief, one doesnt have to spend gobs of money to have a good time at prom

"Put" it toward "your" college fund. (or give it to me for a new laptop with grammar check!)

River Bend is smart....prom is a huge waste of money. A competition of who can spend the most money on a prom dress. To me, spending $300-$700 on those dresses is a ridiculous way to spend your parents money! But it toward you college fund.
