Museum School held its prom Tuesday, June 11, at Giando on the Water in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The seniors arrived looking their best with floor length gowns and suits. Everyone looked lovely and happy. Museum graduates were having a great time as they were making Tiktoks and taking pictures by the breathtaking view of the Williamsburg Bridge. This scenic backdrop, especially with lights at night, added onto the aesthetics.

MC hyping seniors up


The school spared no expense having hired professionals to make this prom a memorable one. There was a DJ, an MC and a person managing the picture station. In an attempt to get everyone comfortable and ready to dance the night away, the DJ started off the night with music from the 20 Teens and the MC went around hyping people up, trying to get them to dance to songs like “I Don’t Care,” by Icona Pop. The photobooth was a popular spot in the venue capturing people with funny props on, adding to the fun.


When asked about her favorite part of prom, Zara Leung said that she loved “seeing everyone in their outfits.” Prom provides an opportunity for seniors to see their classmates, whom they’ve known for four years, all dolled up and grown up. Leung added that the significance of prom is for seniors to be able to “celebrate how far [they’ve] come.” 


Senior Abby O’Connell described prom as “the final night where you get to see your peers, and enjoy without worrying. It’s definitely something to look forward to.” The carefree evening was a well-deserved break from the exams and the college application season, allowing everyone to relax and make life-lasting memories with their friends before they leave for college.


A special moment from the night was the announcement of prom king and queen, something that added onto the fun and excitement. This year’s prom king and queen were Jason He and Sydney Butscher respectively. Their crowning was met with applause by their peers. Also announced was the prom court with the princes, Cullen Grady, Teddy Schwartz and Hunter Smolowitz and the princesses being Abby O’Connell, Jordan Armstead and Ashley Geller.

The candy table, a sweet reminder of the past.


Overall this prom was a great one and all the while, as the seniors were being allowed to celebrate their last days as a high schooler, they snuck off to the candy table to take handfuls and remind themselves of their childhoods. The prom marked an end to one chapter but a beginning to another for Museum seniors as they bid farewell to their high high school years.
