A note from Angela Elisabeth Portaits:

Angela Elisabeth Portraits is looking forward to creating beautiful photos of the couples at Grand March! I enjoy providing this service free to the school each year. If you would like to purchase images, full-size downloads with no watermark/logo are available for $15 each. The image gallery will be available at at 5 p.m.on Sunday, with the password Prom-2017-NHS.

10% of all sales are donated directly to the school, so your purchase is appreciated by many. Please contact me with questions at 507.413.2961 or

The After Party – Jesse James Lanes

Exciting plans are underway for this year’s After Prom Party, a Northfield tradition for over 30 years! This annual event is planned, supported and supervised by parents and guardians of the junior class.

What you need to know:

  • The party is open to all juniors and seniors, even if they do not attend Prom.
  • The night is filled with entertainment, games, prizes, bowling, food and fun.
  • The admission price is a bargain at $5, and students pay at the door.

Where and When:

  • The party will be hosted at Jesse James Lanes.
  • Doors open at midnight, after the April 29 Prom.
  • Students must arrive before 1 a.m. The festivities will conclude between 3:30 and 4 a.m.
  • This event is NOT a lock-in. Students may leave anytime they choose, but re-entry is NOT permitted.

The purpose of this event is to provide a fun, safe, chemical-free environment for juniors and seniors as they enjoy their Prom weekend. The event is made possible and affordable through the generous donations of local businesses and junior class families.
