Post Prom Party (P3)

P3 immediately follows Prom on April 27. The Post Prom Party (P3) has been a tradition at River Hill High School for 14 years and has been successful in providing a safe, fantastic and fun event for all students on the night of Prom. There is evidence that ‘prom night’ safety issues are dramatically reduced in communities that sponsor AFTER PROM programs. To that end – we want to provide a SAFE and MEMORABLE event for all RHHS Juniors, Seniors and their guests to attend. For more information, visit the Post Prom Party (P3) page.
