Glenholme's Mardi Gras Prom on June 13th was an evening of safe and healthy enjoyment.
Washington, CT -  The Mardi Gras style celebration of Saturday, June 13th delivered a day to remember; The Glenholme School’s first prom. A pre-prom reception in the Glenholme Music Room was provided for parents and photo opportunities. This special pre-prom occasion gave everyone the chance to see the spectacular couples and classmates in their formal attire of dapper tuxedos and glamorous gowns, snap a few keepsake moments and wave a fond farewell to the court of companions as they loaded in the limousine and were whisked away.

The prom participants arrived at the Washington Club to find the hall transformed into a Mardi Gras style celebration with masks of gold and glittering candles. The festivities included a three course meal, plenty of dancing, and some exciting candid prop-filled photos. The crowning of the court honored Glenholme’s King Creighton H, and Queen Rachel J, complete with sashes and crowns.

Upon their return to campus, the participants enjoyed a post-prom pleasure of conversation and confections in the Glenholme Commons before setting out on a happy return to their cottages. Glenholme’s Mardi Gras prom was an evening of safe and healthy enjoyment for students.
