Teagan Clark started this petition to Uxbridge Secondary School students and teachers.

 

From a young age all kids are told to look forward to their prom so they can feel like royalty and celebrate the end of their high school careers.

Yet, For the past 5 years ( at least) the USS prom date has been through the week of DIAC (Durham integrates arts camp). Consequently the grade 12 USS students wishing to attend Prom, have to choose between attending prom or DIAC; or drive a complete 4 hours and miss a full day of DIAC to attend the USS prom. Costing those student $625 for camp, $100 for prom and $100 for gas. However, these students still have to pay for their dress/suit, flowers, makeup, hair, Etc. 

In other words, the arts are constantly under the knife and end up getting cut out of funding and acknowledgement. Therefore, by making Prom during DIAC the USS art students are missing amazing new opportunities to learn and trying new experiences they will never forget. 

By signing this petition, you are supporting the idea of having Uxbridge Secondary School’s Prom celebration moved to an earlier date. So that everyone can be apart of their final high school hurrah, before moving in their separate ways.
