2nd Annual Maplewood Parent Prom Raises $12,000 for the School

On Saturday, February 4 Maplewood parents and friends danced the night away at the Parent Prom Presented by Cherrywood Coffeehouse. The Spiderhouse Ballroom was chock full of people decked out in sequins and ruffled tuxes rocking out to the songs of their youth. There was live music by The Recliners and DJ Andy Smith, a silent auction, photo booth and much more. “It was so much fun, because it was that rare time that the community of parents at our school gets to interact with each other as adults. “ Last year’s prom proceeds were used by the PTA to help the school purchase technology, additional books and classroom supplies, and supported the Maplewood food pantry.
