ASB to host new event for Halloween

Looking to create a safer environment for elementary school students to trick or treat in, the Leadership class is hosting its first “Trunk-or-treat” this year for Halloween.

After school ends on Oct. 31, Leadership is inviting high school students to park their cars in the front lots with their trunks open and filled with candy provided by the students. Elementary school students will be able to visit each trunk and trick-or-treat, all under the supervision of their parents.

According to ASB secretary Jolyn Tran, the “trunk-or-treat” promotes a safer trick-or-treating as parents will be present and the elementary schoolers will be within a confined area.

Leadership hopes this event will bring together students and community members. Since October is already a stressful month for students, especially seniors facing college application deadlines, this event will provide a getaway from the stresses of school.

“We are hoping the kids from the high school will participate by decorating their cars, dressing up, passing out candy and coming to support the event,” junior spirit commissioner Kaitlyn Thompson said.
