Meet the Junior Class Sponsor:
Mr. Jim Stewart is in his 24 year as a teacher at North Gwinnett High School and his 23 as the Junior Class Sponsor. You'll find his office in the CLC but feel free to e-mail with any questions or concerns.
As the traditional host of the Prom, members of the Junior Class are responsible for the majority of the cost of the Prom. As a result, juniors are asked to pay dues according to the following schedule:
If you pay your dues before the end of the first week of school in the Fall, your dues will be $65
If you pay your dues after the first week of school but before Winter Break, your dues will be $75
If you pay your dues after Winter Break but before Spring Break, your dues will be $85
If you pay your dues after Spring Break or anytime during your Senior Year, your dues will be $85
Payment will be made using the MyPayments Plus System. (www.mypaymentsplus.com). You will have the opportunity to take care of your Junior Dues payment when you complete the orientation process in late July/early August.

NGHS Prom FAQ
Why do I have to pay Junior Dues? Ticket sales pay for half the cost of putting on the Prom, Junior Dues make up the balance. Any money left after the Prom is used to pay the deposits on next year's Prom. Think you are paying too much? Search for "Prom" at other GCPS schools and you'll see NGHS students pay the least to attend the Prom! Also, know that unlike some of our neighboring schools where Junior Dues are mandatory for all students, NGHS only requires dues of students who want to attend the prom. A few years ago, the Junior Class sponsor sent a survey to the parents of the Junior Class asking if their family would rather do a fundraiser in lieu of paying Junior Dues. Overwhelmingly, the parents voted to continue Junior Dues.
I transferred to NGHS during my Senior Year. Do I have to pay Junior Dues? Since Junior Dues pays for part of the prom Junior and Senior Year, Senior Transfer students are asked to pay 1/2 of the original fee--before all the late fees were added in.
I really want to come to the Prom but I can't afford it. What should I do? At NGHS, we want everyone to be able to enjoy the Prom. Contact your guidance counselor ASAP to discuss some options.
I am technically classified as a Sophomore but I earned enough credit for Junior status after Fall Semester and I will graduate at the end of next year. Can I come to the Prom? Yes. Just have your guidance counselor e-mail Mr. Stewart to let him know of your change in status. Pay your Junior Dues and you are all set to purchase your tickets and come to the Prom!
Do I have to pay more if my date doesn't go to NGHS? No.
Do I have to pay more if my date is a freshman or sophomore at NGHS? No
Is it OK to come to the Prom solo? In 2017, 75% of the people who purchased tickets did so with groups of friends instead of a specific date!
Is there a dress code for the Prom? Yes. This is a formal event and the attire should reflect the formality of the event.
Will there be chaperones at the Prom? Absolutely. There is a very visible adult presence at the Prom. In 2016, this included the following: 6 uniformed Gwinnett Police Officers, 36 adult chaperones, 9 NGHS administrators, and over 120 NGHS teachers/staff.
Will food be available at the Prom? Proof of the Pudding will provide a selection of light hors d'oeuvres and wonderful desserts between 8:30pm and 10:30pm. Punch, water, and coffee will be available throughout the evening.
I'm picking my child up after the Prom, what time should I be there? The prom is over at 11:00pm. Please arrive no later than 11:00pm.
Does North Gwinnett sponsor any sort of after prom function? No. Many families host after-parties for their student but NGHS does not sponsor an after party.
When is next year's Prom? Saturday, May 2th, 2020 at the Infinite Energy Center!
