Jr-Sr Prom 2019

The Buckholts High School Junior Class hosted the Junior-Senior Prom in Buckholts Saturday, May 4th.

After the lights dimmed, the ceremonies kicked off with the Grand March.
Next up was a dance demonstration.
Then it was time for formal prom photos.

And of course, the proverbial selfie. (Is it still a "selfie" if
more than one person is involved?
Finally, the moment all had been waiting for, the announcement of the Prom Queen and King!

Haley Cazares and Zachary McGee were named Prom Queen & King.

By Land & Air

Buckholts Junior High athletes competed in track and field events at the Gause Junior High Track Meet last Tuesday.

While some preferred running on air, 
others chose to sail through the air.
And, a few planted themselves.
