Safely Trunk or Treating

Annual trunk or treat event provides safe environment for candy grabbing.

The winning trunk from Ending Disparities in the Healthcare System club.

Trunk or Treat is a fun alternative to trick or treating, where parents or guardians can bring their kids to an area dedicated to vehicles handing out candy in one general area. This year it was held in the parking lot and front part of the school by the center circle. Each club or grade level had a theme. FBLA member,Caleb Conklen (11) said, “We’re planning on doing a pirate theme. The truck will look like a pirate ship, and we will dress up as pirates”

Along with handing out candy there was a cakewalk and more games for the kids to participate in. To get more people to come to our school Mark Eddings (12) the vice president of student relations said “we’re actually partnered with Mountain view so we’ll have a lot more trucks than last year.” Some trunks had games as well as fun decorations too. Michelle Lau (12) “We’re gonna have about 40 trunks this year, this is the most we’ve had cause we’re combining with another school, we’re just gonna have them lined around the courtyard and it’s going to be around an hour long” She’ll be running cakewalk and sound as president.

As for Stucco, they had a lot to do. Students on the executive council didn’t decorate trunks but different class councils did as well as clubs. Working on cakewalk, sound, layout, and people to direct traffic, they had a lot to do. Saffren Stevens (11) “I’m in charge of the cakewalk. We’ve been working hard on the layout and the sign up forms for all of the clubs and for our individual classes we have to pick a theme and plan our decorations and everything we need to buy.” Even though this is a fairly easy event for them, there is still much to do. Talking with Mrs. Powell and others are a part of Stucco about what needs to be done, how to set up and how to decorate. Nico Curtis (12) “My council is overseeing the entire event.. My role is to get all the cars in position and all organized then I’ll go help with the cakewalk.” Everyone is putting so much work and effort into this event. 

With over 40 trucks and many activities to participate in. Starting at 5 p.m ending at 6 p.m this event was full of smiles and candy bags. Many games run by our hardworking students, this event was a success. Hoping everyone had a great time Stucco and everyone else that participated helped make this an amazing event.

This year’s winning trunk was the Ending Disparities in the Healthcare System’s western themed trunk. The prize is $200 to help the organization.
