Whether it was a wonderful experience or a terrible one, if you went to your high school senior prom, I am sure that it was a night to remember. For so many teenagers the prom is the highlight of high school. It is the one thing so many students look forward to. Many see it as a rite of passage into adulthood. For Amy L. Best, the author of "Prom Night: Youth, Schools, and Popular Culture", the prom is a perfect opportunity to explore teen identity and individuality. It is also a place to look at how this event speaks so much about today's kids.
The United States is known throughout the world to be a place in which there are many cultures and customs mixing and colliding. One thing that each culture has in abundance is rites of passage, whether it is Births, Bat Mitzvahs, Quinces, or graduation. Each right of passage is an event that signifies a transition in a person’s life. Senior Prom is a rite of passage for young men and women that is indicative of their transition from teenagers to young adults. It is meant to be a celebration of the high school experience; the last hurrah. A gathering of friends who have spent four years of their adolescence together, figuring out who they are as
Dissolved oxygen is oxygen that is trapped in a fluid, such as water. Since many living organism requires oxygen to survive, it is a necessary component of water systems such as streams, lakes and rivers in order to support aquatic life. The dissolved oxygen is measured in units of parts per million (ppm). Examine the data in Table 4 showing the amount of dissolved oxygen present and the number of fish observed in the body of water the sample was taken from; finally, answer the questions below.
Prom is supposed to be a very exciting night. I think finding a date for prom is even more exciting. You see my school has this thing called grand march and you have to have a prom date/ friend to even participate in the walk. So if you are a loner you can’t go. Well my experience finding a prom date so I wouldn’t be a loner was quite the adventure.
Well I'm more awake than this morning, and I'm braining better. Since the prom spread is Megan x2, Emily, and Mine's I just was wondering if you know what Dani has in terms of prom-posal pictures, or information. Next class I would like to gather those resources so that we're not scrambling next Monday. Also since this is Dani's spread should we keep the title and layout, and everything and just plug in pictures or take creative control. I'm fine with any of them but I don't want to overstep/understep my boundries.
Forgiveness by the World English Dictionary is the “act of forgiving; state of being forgiven, disposition or willingness to forgive”. But what does it really mean? That is my question. Is being able to forgive and not forget the same thing? In my life, I have found that true forgiveness is a quality that separates us from other species and it is what makes us human. In order to truly and sincerely forgive, one must, aside from saying they have forgiven the person, let it go and not hold a grudge against that person. Just, as Mahatma Gandhi once said: “The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong." I believe that holds to be true.
Prom 2K16, the scariest night of my life. Me and my boyfriend Colin started dating december of my freshman year his junior year. We met through mutual friends, I fell for him the moment I saw him. It's crazy to think how far we have come but that a story for another time.
As I grew up, I refuse to let the stereotypes people expect of those growing up in the South Bronx confine me. Since I have always been aware that where I live is usually referred to as dangerous and withholds those growing up here, I don't want to let where I live define me. This motivated me to do as much as possible, in and out of the classroom. Consequently, I decided to be a part of prom committee, be a volunteer, and work as an intern at my school. I began volunteering at the Hope Line Resource Center to assist those in the community. Furthermore, I volunteer in health fairs to spread awareness of the ways people can put their body in a healthier state with Urban Health Plan. I eventually became an intern in the clinic with Urban Health
Most of the time that results because they are usually the ones you talk to the most so eventually
Still, I was mildly shocked that there was only one other senior girl waiting for the teacher to take our ID cards so we could join the class. The teacher was surprised too, but for immensely different reasons. Mr. “S” appeared stunned that senior girls would choose a class labeled “Competitive Team Sports” while there were still openings in the traditionally all-girls class. Instead of taking our cards, he warned the two of us that the class would be mainly boys and that we shouldn’t expect any special treatment. That made sense, but the speech continued, cautioning us that the boys would hit hard and that we shouldn’t cry when things got tough. That a teacher thought his class would make me cry rendered me speechless and I remained in a state of disbelief as Mr. “S” finally took our cards and told us we might be called down to discuss the matter further.
Praiseworthiness can raise an individuals’ confidence. They won’t be afraid to do things they thought they never could do. How can praiseworthiness be defined?

Brooke- We thank you all for coming to this special occasion in our lives. We will start to move forward to high school, college, and beyond. Just like the past, we will gain and lose new friends in our high school years. We are ready to move forward into the next chapter of life. We have worked so hard to become the eighth grade class of 2016 and become the top of the school. Now we will drop back to the bottom and work our way up to being Seniors. You will follow us and watch us on this last chapter of school.
Middle school is the transition from being a 5th grader who walked in lines everywhere they go to being able to do whatever until 7:40 A.M. Within reason of course. Those lockers are tiny and the combinations are new adaptations. You hide your stash of gum inside your locker the aroma is pleasant unless your gym clothes are inside.You hear your phone buzz off and remember to shut the thing off. You see textbooks the size of China inside and your big backpack full of homework. You grab for your books and then shut in with force and off class you go.
It's that time of year, when students enjoy a rite of passage: their school prom.
Senior year was going to be the best one yet. I was going to be involved and fully enjoy it. However, my excitement started to diminish when my best friend got a boyfriend a month before school started. I didn’t think things would change at first, but suddenly I no longer had a constant companion at social events. The nights where we’d hang out were gone, and I found myself constantly third-wheeling. My hope for an amazing senior year was gone; I lost my best friend, and I felt miserably alone. (499)
