All Smiles and Fun at West Jordan High Inclusive Dance Party

It was an amazing night to remember for some students and staff at West Jordan High School. Student Body Officers wanted everyone to have the prom experience this year, so they organized a dance party which included invites for all students with special needs at the school. The SBO’s escorted their classmates to the dance by arranging to pick them up on a party bus. Then, they were treated to a delicious dinner before the dance party began. The night included fun and festive outfits, pictures, lots of smiles, dancing and just pure joy.

Thanks to everyone at West Jordan High for making the Inclusive Dance Party possible and creating high school memories to last a lifetime.
