Trunk-or-Treat brings Halloween festivities to school

in Features/General by

The typically student-filled 9000 hallway and parking lot was once again turned into a Halloween wonderland. Children and parents gathered for Trunk-or-Treat hosted by NHS Oct. 31. From 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.

Starting at 3 o’clock, the halls bustled with upper school students hurrying to decorate the 9000 hallway and classrooms, and get into costume. The hallway was transformed into a web-filled passage full of frightening portraits and decorations. Each room was sponsored by a different club or honor society, and featured student-led activities and games for children to participate in, ranging from Key Club’s lightsaber battles to NHS’s widely-loved haunted house. Other activities included the Dance Company’s zombie dance party, SGA’s cookie decorating, SHS’s Day of the Dead, Letters for Better’s campfire tales, NAHS’s arts and crafts and trick-or-treat bags, Black, Gold, and Green’s trash comes alive, and the Harry Potter club’ quidditch-themed bean bag toss.

“It’s so fun working together with all the clubs and seeing how much fun the kids have. This year’s lightsaber activity was a success,” said Key Club president and sophomore Dalya Ackerman.

In the parking lot, juniors and seniors turned their car trunks into candy-filled havens decorated to delight the trunk or treaters. The Ninjineers’ robot was decked out in its own monster costume and threw candy at passing children. Treats and pizza were sold in the breezeway of the 9000.
