Details: Each year Leach students help plan for the prom to the best of their abilities while also voting on a Prom King and Prom Queen who will be honored at the event. “It is a pleasure to give our special needs students the same high school experiences that other students have so they, and their parents, can enjoy a memorable prom,” said Principal Christal Beasley. “Our prom is one of the most exciting and anticipated events of the entire school year!” she said.
