Princesses, pirates, and zombies filled the hallways at HRHS on Tuesday, October 8th for Trick or Treat Street, an event organized by FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America).
Kids and their families were invited to the school dressed in their costumes to enjoy different Halloween activities. Some activities included a cake walk, hula hoop contests, and a haunted hallway.
Sophomore student senate worked a photo booth where kids could take a picture with one of the sophomores with a backdrop that said ‘trick or treat.’ “It went pretty well. The kids seemed to like the photo booth, and parents liked getting the pictures,” said Taylor Brooke, sophomore.
NAHS (National Art Honor Society) was in charge of the face paint.”The kids seemed to be having a lot of fun and enjoyed getting their faces painted. Trick or Treat street was really successful,” said Delaney Knoebel, sophomore. They did all sorts of designs from spider webs to snowflakes. “It was a quick and nice change of pace from all the games and competitions, and the kids were able to choose designs that went with their costume,” said Megan de Guzman, sophomore.
Some volunteers ran more than one booth, like Alexandra Malach, English teacher. She helped with ghost bowling, mummy wrap, monster murals, and Halloween bingo. “I think it was very successful and the kids had fun. They liked the variety and there was a lot of energy,” said Malach.
As for the attendance, it compared well to other years. “There were more kids than there have been in the past years that we have done this event,” said Brooke.
On the other hand, a couple things could’ve been better. “There is always room for improvement. A few changes in organization and the layout would make it better for the following years,” said de Guzman.
Overall, the students and volunteers put in a lot of hard work to make this event a fun celebration for the community.
