Robbinsville High School rolled out the Red Carpet, literally, for its senior class on May 17 before they departed for the prom.

A total 285 students and their dates each took a turn making a grand Hollywood-style entrance and waving to hundreds of people who lined the school sidewalk to watch the glamorous show.

After celebrating their prom at the Merion Inn in Cinnaminson, the Class of 2013 returned to Robbinsville High School for their Post-Prom party. Parent volunteers, who had spent two years fundraising for this event, had transformed the RHS Commons into the Jersey shore, complete with a real wooden boardwalk surrounded by dune fencing, a 15-foot tall lighthouse (with working lights), and four beach destinations featuring varied attractions.

Without leaving their school, students were able to visit Atlantic City’s poker and roulette tables; Seaside’s boardwalk games; a Tiki bar surrounded by beach chairs and grass-skirted Ping Pong tables in Cape May; and a food court in Wildwood offering delicious foods and seating under beach umbrellas. Down the hallway inside the gymnasium there were climbing inflatables and laser tag for anyone who still had energy to burn after a night of dancing at the prom.

The party, which lasted from 12 midnight to 6 a.m., also included a DJ, a hypnotist, massages, a fortune teller, free portraits, raffles for TVs, and other prizes.

Post-Prom is an annual tradition at Robbinsville High School that keeps students safe once the prom is over by offering them a fun, alcohol-free celebration supervised by parents and school officials. The party is provided at no cost to students (or taxpayers) and is made possible by parent fundraisers, as well as the donations of time and materials from both RHS families and area businesses.
