Both the PROM DANCE AND AFTER PROM has Guest Request Forms. There are two different forms. Both forms are required if attending both the Dance and After Prom. Download the After Prom form here.

Senior Parents
Please send a small baby picture and wallet-size senior picture for the traditional “Senior Wall” displayed at After Prom. Please make the student’s name on the back of both pictures. The committee will not return the pictures, but the student is welcome to take theirs from the wall before leaving After Prom.

Parent Donation
Last year, over 950 students were treated to a SAFE, fun-filled evening. After Prom does not happen on its own. It takes the support of the parents and the community. We ask parents of all junior and seniors for $25 to defray costs of this worthwhile event.

Please return your $25 (and picture, if a senior) by mail to Ankeny After Prom, PO Box 1181, Ankeny, IA 50021 or bring to either High School office. Be sure to include your student’s name, grade, and school on the check. Money and pictures will be accepted April 23, 2014 but your prompt attention is greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your support of Ankeny After Prom!

Russ & Pam Heinzerling, Senior Chairs
