TAHS Prom 2018

The 2019 TAHS Prom will be held on Friday, May 17, 2019, at the Altoona Grand Hotel from 7:30 pm to 11:00 pm. Despite the location change, there will still be a Grand March which will begin at approximately 6:45 pm outside of the Altoona Grand Hotel.

Cost of admission to the prom is still $40 per person and includes the choice of a  prom t-shirt, long sleeve t-shirt, or crew neck sweatshirt.

Students who would like to help reduce the cost of prom can take part in the BakeShop Bakes fundraiser from March 25th, through April 5th. To participate, just pick up a packet outside Miss McLarren’s room, 110, or Miss Markel’s room, 229.
