Post Prom Information for Parents

Senior Parents!!

What’s the most important gift you can give your child this year? A safe and fun Post Prom night!

Post Prom is a huge hit every year at Whitman and it offers our seniors a safe alternative to drug and alcohol parties which have resulted in tragedy in the past.  This year’s event will be on May 7, 2021.

We need your help to keep our kids safe on Prom night.  The Post Prom event is FREE for all seniors and their dates, whether they attend prom or not, thanks to generous parents and community partners who help fund this important event.  We expect 95% of seniors to attend this event, which is in line with prior years!

While contributions of any amount are welcome and appreciated, the suggested donation amount is $150 to cover the cost of food, DJ, games, and fabulous prizes.  Your donation is tax deductible.  Walt Whitman High School PTSA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization; tax ID#52-6070619.

Please donate today online at  If you would rather send a check please send your donation to Nicole Riso, c/o WWHS PP2021, 10620 Stable Lane, Potomac, MD 20854.
