After Prom Planning is Underway! After Prom is an event held at the Glenwood Community Center from 11:30 p.m. – 3:30 a.m. after the May 12 Prom.  The MRHS PTSA plans this fun-filled event to provide a safe place for kids to continue the fun after the Prom.  It’s a great way to get involved and meet some other parents.  There will be many volunteer roles (i.e. setting up games, checking kids in, helping to run activities, serving food . . . and many more)!   We will be sending out a volunteer signup link soon. We can only be successful if we have plenty of volunteers.  Many more details to come!  AfterProm contact person is Karen Chase @ 410.531.9818 or
