Haunted High school prepares for scares

5 years ago, student council decided that they wanted to provide a safer, more controlled version of Trick-or-Treating for younger kids. They came up with the not-so-scary Haunted High School, which became a huge success.

It is scheduled to occur Thursday, October 27 from 4-6, with setup from 3-4. The admission cost is one non-perishable food item, which will be donated to the local food pantry.
“We don’t want to make money off little kids’ happiness”, Lyn Scolaro, the student council advisor, said. By having participants donating a can though, student council can still help out the community.
At Haunted High School, different rooms each have an activity, and the kids are free to roam between them. This year there are 20 groups putting on activities, from Science Olympiad (Haunted Science Lab) to the girls’ swim and diving team (BOOsical chairs).
Then Haunted High School is advertised only by posters around the community and word of mouth, but that’s always enough to make the event a success.
“I expect a good turnout,” Scolaro said.
