Frightening weather couldn’t scare young Chargers away from the Trunk or Treat event hosted by the Upper School on Friday, October 25 prior to the varsity football game versus Kingfisher. Usually held outside by the football field, a chilly, rainy forecast moved this year’s festivities into the Boghetich Gym, where a variety of Upper School clubs and athletic teams had set up tables with games and candy.
“I really enjoyed watching all the kids having fun as they ran around taking pictures with Lightning [Heritage Hall’s mascot] and participating in the different activities. Trunk or Treat is a really special event to be a part of,” said senior Jake Ephraim, who helped man the Spirit Cheer table.
Adding to the fun, each organization decorated their spaces with Halloween adornments, objects pertaining to their club, or a fun theme. Among them, Pep Club turned their area into a campsite, complete with a tent and Bunsen burner to make s’mores. Art Club created a splatter paint sign and hung paint brushes off of the table, while the soccer teams had miniature goals so trunk-or-treaters could kick a soccer ball around. Other activities included cornhole, Halloween-themed coloring sheets, and balloon-popping games. In the midst of it all, of course, was lots and lots of candy.
“It was fun to see all the different costumes and play games with the kids,” stated senior David Turner, who worked the Art Club table. “Was definitely glad the event was moved indoors, however, as it provided everyone a nice way to stay warm before the game,” he concluded.
Whether indoors or outdoors, Trunk or Treat is a fun-filled tradition for Chargers of all ages!
