Joy Prom for WCSD, 2019


We worked with Lexie’s boutique, and we
asked teachers to bring their students there, and they got free prom attire:
dresses, and tuxes, and even wallets and things like that. And just that event in
itself was amazing, because the kids were so excited and just so happy to be
included. So we’re trying as a District to really form those bonds, where the
kids are members of our community. And you really just see the smiles on the
kids faces, and it’s just amazing to see that, because you know, they don’t
really have a prom that’s just for them, where they get to feel special, and
they’re the stars of the show. That’s our huge Washoe County School
District goal, is that we want all students to feel comfort in the culture
of their schools, and sometimes that doesn’t happen, so when we create these
events like joy prom, it’s an inclusive practice, where we’re asking all students
to come and participate and really feel included. So we go the extra mile to make
sure that they feel special that night. These kids just feel joy from it,
and so that’s what really is kind of the best part for me, is because I get to
truly feel that joy with them, knowing that I have helped create this impact on
the community and on these kids, and it just it makes me feel really good about
it.
