“Girls Night Out” prepares WHS students for prom

As prom seasons rolls through yet again, the usual commotion and excitement is spreading, even in March. The girls, who arguably have the greatest responsibility in finding the perfect dress, hair, makeup, and much more will have a little bit of relief with the help of “Girls Night Out” on April 4 at 7:30 in the cafeteria.

Being held by the Student Council for the first time, the much anticipated night includes a raffle with prizes from different beauty locations around Walpole contributed with a variety of stations prepping one for spring formals. The speakers for each station consist of  different make-up, hair, and dress consultants, as well as a registered nurse who will inform the party-goers about nutrition and fitness.

The night has a $10 entrance fee, which will be deducted to $5 if one brings a prom or semi-formal dress as a donation.  The dresses will go to the Fairy Godmother Project based out of Houston, Texas, whose goal is “making prom dreams come true” for financially troubled teens.  Along with the FGP, the money collected from the night will be divided with the Make a Wish foundation—an organization which grants the wishes of children with life-threatening diseases.

“It’s a good opportunity for the girls to look their best at their formal, as well as a good girls bonding night” said Student Council adviser Ms. Mac.  With all of the advice and consulting, the girls’ stress may be relieved and replaced with a little bit of self-esteem built up by the night’s stations.

“Although this our first time hosting “Girls Night Out”, hopefully it can become a tradition in the future” said Ms. Mac.  This night truly depends on whether attendance is prominent and marketing for the event goes as planned by the Student Council.  For those who do attend, the night is sure to provide beneficial tips and guidance.
