ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Seniors at a New Mexico high school have voted to hold a prom with a communism theme, which they’ve dubbed “prom-munism.”

KRQE-TV in Albuquerque (https://goo.gl/x2zXLb ) reports that Cottonwood Classical Preparatory School students voted online this week for the theme.

Senior Sarah Zachary says many of her classmates are jokesters and they wanted the prom to be funny. But She says lots of students also are intense about politics.

Cottonwood executive director Sam Obenshain says the school’s students are in the International Baccalaureate program and are very academically focused.

Obenshain says he plans to talk to students to make sure that the communism theme is something they want to embrace.

Sophomore Cole Page says she didn’t find it funny.

The prom is scheduled at the Albuquerque Aquarium on April 25.
