School is out for real. Where did the time go? Did it disappear like water in a toilet bowl after you flush? Now, I want to go back in time and reflect on all the things that took place over the past year. Wow, a lot has happened at Helix High School. As I pondered on all the different events through the year, I realized I have to thank a lot of people who helped make it a fabulous prom! We have a great Deaf community! How do I start? I cannot just simply say thank you. Instead, I want to show pictures and explain a little about what people did. When we first started planning the prom at the start of the year, we knew we needed donations and monetary support. When we asked for support, many stepped in. Some gave a lot of money while others may have given a little. Each and every donation still meant a lot. Thank you very much for your donation!
With all the donations we got and fundraisers we hosted, we made a lot of progress but not without a lot of support from organizations and agencies. With their support, we were able to perserve and stick to the plan. For that, I want to thank three major group of people who were behind us.

During the whole year, we were very excited about the prom and wanted the world to know it. We wanted to publicize the whole event. We made it possible via our eye catching vlogs. However, I was not the one behind the creativity of each and every vlog we posted. I want to thank the person responsible and i think you know who it is. (Chuckles)

As the prom night approached, there were many details to take care of. We had a great team of people who worked fast and took care of all the important details. If it weren't for these people, the prom wouldn't have been possible. On prom night, everybody showed up with energy and everything went very smoothly. It was one heck of a team. I am proud to be the one to thank these people. They all rock!
You see these pictures from prom night? Neat, aren't they? Do you want to see more? Unfortunately, PhotoReflect is no longer the website we use for our pictures. Instead, we will use smugmug to store our pictures. You'll see all 925 pictures from the night. You can order them online. Order as many as you want or as little. You can even order a T-shirt or a blown up picture. It is entirely up to you! Have fun!
And hey...one more thing! Video clips are coming soon. Keep your eyes open for it!
