|Lunch-time event gives PHS students glimpse of prom dresses available to borrow|
|Wednesday, April 24, 2019|
With prom coming up on May 3, Pattonville High School students got a glimpse of prom dresses they can borrow for the big event.
Students staged a short prom fashion show in the school cafeteria during lunchtime to model dresses available at Pirate Pete's Closet. This is a room at the high school where students can pick up and keep donated items such as coats, shoes and shirts as needed. Prom dresses are only available to borrow, but there are approximately 100 dresses in stock.
Students in Mary Favazza's Clothing and Textiles and Advanced Clothing and Textiles classes emceed the fashion show and modeled the dresses on a red carpet while upbeat music played in the background.
Pirate Pete's Closet is organized by Special School District (SSD) teacher Lynn Wynen Chamberlain. Chamberlain worked with Favazza and her students on the special event to make sure students knew the dresses were available.
