    Paige is only a 14-year-old freshman. Since when do freshmen go to the prom?

    How about the Junior prom?

    Why not a prom? Nowadays kids are graduating a couple times before the end of H.S. It makes money.

    My daughter went to proms from Jr. HG to High school. Wish I knew of recycled prom dress back then.

    Junior proms are by definition for juniors. Again, Paige is only a freshman; she’s two years too young to go to even the junior prom.

    What are you talking about? I’ve never heard of graduating repeatedly before the end of high school.

    She could get asked to prom by an upperclassman. Happened all the time at my high school.

    Oh, yeah. Wife is going to attend niece’s grad this June in Calif. from a parochial middle school, and I’ve heard of others.

    Only the person purchasing the ticket need be a Junior (or Senior for the corresponding prom). The age of his (or her) date is not usually considered.

    My son had graduations from Kindergarten, Middle School, High School and (thank heaven) College. Obviously the first 2 were low key. For his kindergarten “graduation” we took him to Chuck E. Cheese.

    In addition, I taught in a middle for 20 years and the students who were graduating had a prom-like luncheon with dancing. It was held off campus in a restaurant or banquet hall. The principal explained that for some students this would be the only time they could experience prom and graduation since they might drop out.

    No desperation there.

    My cousin who was a senior, took a freshman to the prom in the early nineties.

    One senior girl took a Marine to our senior prom in 1967.

    Naaah that is not desperate.

    I’ve seen kindergarten “graduations” complete with caps, gowns and valedictorian!
