After-Prom Party

The 2019 Valley High School and Walnut Creek Campus After-Prom Party will take place from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. at Valley High School. This year’s theme is “Viva Las Valley.” Students must arrive between 11 p.m. and midnight to register and will not be allowed to re-enter once they leave. It is not necessary for junior or senior students to attend prom to attend the after-prom party. However, any non-Valley, non-Walnut Creek, or sophomore guests must have attended prom with a Valley or Walnut Creek student in order to attend after-prom.

There is no cost to attend the after-prom party. Entertainment will include a rock climbing wall, silent disco, laser tag, table games, karaoke, a hypnotist, cash cube, and more! Awesome food and beverages will be served. Great prizes will be available for those in attendance.
