NHS Prepares for Graduation; Looks Back at Prom

As the Nutley High School wraps up the end of the year, the staff prepares for graduation on Wednesday, Juen 26 and looks back at the Senior Prom, held on June 13 at The Grove.  


The Senior Prom took many months of behind-the-scenes planning, according to class advisers, Ms. Lauren Uckar and Ms. Jessica Coppola. “We needed to be in contact with the venue to get all the arrangements ready, and pricing and establishing a contract,” says Mrs.Uckar. “We have to have a centerpiece for each table and decide on a color scheme.”


As the prom, the next big event is NHS Graduation. This year, graduation will be organized by the administrative team at NHS: Mr. Williams, Mr. Materia, and Mrs. Devore. It's been a rainy June and because of the unpredictable weather, the staff has to plan the graduation for both inside and outside. “Outside is easier,” says Mrs.Devore. “Everything is done in one spot and we just follow last year's program.” If it were to rain, the staff has a plan to move the graduation inside. In the effect of an indoor graduation, “teachers are assigned to a classroom, and are required to bring laptops, to hook up the projector to show the live view of the graduation, taking place in the gym.”


While Nutley High School is prepared for the unpredictable weather for graduation day, all hope the weather cooperates. As for the seniors, they are excited to start their new beginnings.
