16 Male High School Students 

This is registration for 8 boys from OHS and 8 boys from OEHS to volunteer to be a HS host at A Night in Paris Special Needs prom. This is a night for our guests. As much as we love and appreciate what you do, this is their night to shine. That is where you come in! We need your help to make this their night and make them feel special.

You need to arrive at 4pm. At that time you be given instructions on your responsibility. Our guests will start ariving at 5pm. Dinner will be from 6-7 pm. You will be assigned to a table for dinner. You will be eating dinner with our guests. The dance will take place from 7-9 pm. Your task is to get everyone dancing and make sure they are having a good time.  This does not mean make sure your friends are having a good time. Your focus needs to be on our special needs guests. It is your responsibility to make sure the guests are having the time of their lives.

If you arrive at the dance in inappropriate dress, not following district dress code, you will be asked to leave.  

If you sign up to help, and for some reason know you will not be able to make it, you need to alert the organizer ASAP as we have many students who want to be a part of this event. If you sign up, it is your responsibility to show up.  Not showing up will prohibit you from volunteering at this event in the future and any other events of Celebrate Differences.
