"The girls looked so pretty," Alex McCue’s mom reports, "but the tulle was hilarious…who knew that tulle is the best mosquito and fly netting ever made?" Flies hovering in the grass were getting caught in the girls dresses—it was gross and funny all at the same time." But prom was as magical as promised. [Cottrell Photos]

Ms. Alex McCue was asked to send a short report about Frazier Mountain High School’s 2011 “Masquerade Ball” prom.

By Alex McCue, FMHS senior

Our group started by going to Braxton Jens’ home in Cuddy Valley to have our pictures taken. Then we went to meet our limousine at the Flying J.

We arrived at Universal City Walk and were greeted by a large group of tourists taking photos of us and our limo.

Though dinner was to be served at prom, our group went to the Italian restaurant Buca di Deppo. After dinner we walked from the restaurant to the Universal City Sheraton Hotel. We entered the elevator and went up to the 21st floor. When we stepped out we were welcomed by teachers Tim Garcia, Sue Brown and Shannon Norris, who found our reservations. Then we voted for prom queen and king.

We walked into the ballroom. It had three walls of windows that allowed us to look out over all of Los Angeles.

Prime rib, salmon, chicken and mixed veggies were served for the dinner. There was also an array of desserts. When the sun set we all hit the dance floor. The DJ played a variety of dance music. Jessica Attlesey and Nick Kashanski were crowned prom queen and king. The report is that 168 people bought prom tickets. Everyone had a great time!
