StuCo Prepares for Trick or Treat Street


By Grace Harding

Halloween comes once every year and is a favorite time of year for many. However, for some people, it is hard to spare time or money for their children to have the privilege to go trick or treating and collect free candy from their neighbors. FHN’s Student Council hosts their annual Trick or Treat Street for the children in their community, so all get the equal opportunity to experience going trick or treating.

“It brings new activities and candy, especially candy, and time to hang out with the family to the kids,” said Trick or Treat Street volunteer Coong Tran.

Trick or Treat Street will be held on Friday, Oct. 26, throughout the school from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. Parents will pay $2 at the door for their child to participate in crafts, games, pumpkin carving and mainly, trick or treating

“[We put it on for the] community and little kids who will hopefully come to North one day,” said teacher Shelly Parks, sponsor of Student Council. “Hopefully it makes our community more excited about their future children coming here.”

Many different clubs participate in setting up a fun environment for the kids to enjoy. Last year Knights of Excellence had bounce houses in the commons while Student Council hosted fun games. The games ranged from spinning a wheel for candy to kids racing each other to eat a doughnut that was hanging from the ceiling, with no hands.

“It helps to show the community how great our school is,” said Parks. “It brings the clubs in our school together which increases school spirit.”
