A note from Project Seniors 2021 President- Rikki Blessing:
Our Senior Sunset Luau was a HUGE success!! Because of the donations and support from our LOBO community our kids were able to have the senior celebration they deserved and needed after being so isolated during this unprecedented year. I want to personally thank my Project Seniors Board, Julie Puccio (VP), Kathleen Satterfield (Secretary), Elaine Wyrick (Treasurer), Lisa Durham (Co-Treasurer), Marcie Anghilante (Co-Treasurer), Kellye Slatton (Membership), and Pamela Vacek (Webmaster/PR), the bottom of my heart for sticking it out through the highs and lows and all the many in-betweens! I would also like to say a huge thank you to Mr. Carl Mendez -AP & Dr. Kristie Stephenson – AP, as well as our amazing committee chairs, and EVERY SINGLE volunteer and staff member that offered their time, attention, flexibility, and most of all PATIENCE throughout this year of “firsts”.
I felt nothing but pride seeing the surprise and excitement on the kids’ faces as they entered the venue. The genuine joy of just seeing each other in person —and some for the first time since their Jr. year—filled my heart. It was so wonderful to watch them laugh, dance, limbo, and shuffle on the dance floor. Watching them jump, dive, kick, and literally “wipe-out” on the games and inflatables with their blue, red, or purple mouths from the Bahama Bucks while just being kids and making memories was ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING.
So please join me and raise your Tiki-Glasses and cheers to an AMAZING job with our first ever Senior Sunset Luau!! 🌺🌴 🌅

WHAT IS PROJECT PROM?
Project Prom is a chaperoned drug-free and alcohol-free lock in event held at The Main Event that runs immediately after prom until 5 a.m. the following morning. This long-standing tradition promotes a safe environment for the seniors of Langham Creek and their dates. Langham Creek is one of the only remaining Cy-Fair high schools to host a Project Prom event. In 2020 we’re anticipating over 450 young adults will attend this event.
WHAT IS PROJECT SENIORS
Planning for 2021 is already underway and we want to provide you information about an amazing opportunity to get involved with LCHS Project Prom/Project Seniors 2021! What is Project Prom/Project Seniors? Project Prom is an after-prom event organized by Senior parents in collaboration with LCHS to ensure that our kids are in a safe, drug and alcohol free environment to continue the fun after prom. Project Prom, and all the amazing fundraisers leading up to the big event, have become part of LCHS and LOBO traditions that our Seniors look forward to as they close out their high school experience. When Covid-19 occurred this past Spring, both Prom and Project Prom were cancelled, but the fun did not stop, as Langham Creek High School organized the “Senior Sunset Parade”, and LCHS Project Prom worked in collaboration with LCHS to provide prizes, a DJ, decor, and FUN. The result was LCHS and Project Prom were able to provide the largest and BEST “Senior Sunset Parade” in the District!
We all remain hopeful that our Seniors will be able to experience prom this year, however, with the uncertainty related to Covid-19, we have made the decision to move forward with our plans for 2021 so that we can be involved in another outstanding “Senior Sunset Parade” for the class of 2021, hence the name change to Project Seniors! While the scheduling of prom will be decided later, there IS certainty on the ability to host another outstanding “Senior Sunset” event, should Prom not occur.
