Students look through the racks at the Prom-ise pop-up shop in room 210.

Looking for a perfect dress for Prom this year 2024? Head on over to room 210 for a fantastic selection of free Prom dresses! Whatever you prefer, classic or elegant, there is something for everyone so don’t miss out this seasonal opportunity to discover your dream dress.

When you first walk in, you get this feeling of euphoria and excitement– almost how walking into a designer store would feel. There are racks full of color coordinated bold dresses, suits, ties and dress tops. Not only do they vary in style but also in size as they range from XXS to XXL.

To tie the outfit together, there is a selection of accessories such as hats, belts, purses, necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings, and even clip-on earrings as well as heels, boots, sandals, and dress shoes. You can try on any of these items in the bathrooms right outside the room if you are not sure how they will look on you.

To rent, there is a sign out sheet where you include your information and a description of the items you are taking.

The dresses and suits are donations from the community that are sent to the trailers outside of school, then transferred to set up the Prom pop-up shop.
Dayton Henceroth, the marketing teacher, sponsors Prom-ise.

“I also love seeing how much the community gives to this. It’s parents, staff members, parents of former students. It’s amazing to me to just manage this,” said Henceroth.

He is very passionate about running the Prom pop-up shop and has done it for the past 3 years.

“I think that the most important thing for me is just seeing how happy the students are when they get to find something. And obviously it’s free, right? But secondly, what I’m teaching them is that it’s helping the environment because we’re recycling clothes,” adds Henceroth.

After each year the positive feedback and support the shop receives has caused this seasonal pop-up shop to be an annual occurrence.
