The 2018 Timber Creek Prom is scheduled for Saturday, May 19, at the Gaylord Texan, 1501 Gaylord Trail, from 7 p.m. to midnight.

UPDATE: For our May 13, 2018 update to this article, we’ve struck through all the out of date information to help you find relevant details.
Dress Code, Fashion and Theme
The theme for the prom will be Moonlit Masquerade. Seniors may dress coordinating to the theme as long as they remain in dress code.
There will be a dress code for the prom. The Gaylord asks that shoes are kept on at all times, so students may want to bring an extra pair of shoes to dance in. There is a student run prom Instagram @timbercreekprom18 that seniors may look at to ensure that their dress is unique for others’. In the past, there has been confusion on the dress code for prom.
The code is the same as last year’s and is as follows:
-Dresses and slits should be no shorter/higher than mid thigh.
-Open backed dresses are allowed but not farther down than the small of one’s back.
-Plunging necklines need to be covered with a nude backing.
If seniors are unsure, the may check that their dress follows the dress code with Boehringer in room M106.
