SADD recognizes the drastic impacts the 2020-2021 school year has had on students. In addition to health and safety challenges, Covid-19 restrictions have led to social isolation and the cancellation of so many meaningful events. Throughout this year, SADD has made it a priority to make sure students feel supported and connected within OUR community to help make up for lost socialization and milestone events, particularly for teens.
In this spirit, SADD will be hosting a virtual prom for high school students all over the country! On May 8th, all students in grades 9-12 are invited to attend this virtual event of music, games, giveaways, outfits contests, and more. Please follow the steps below to join us for “Lights, Camera, Prom!”
