A Trunk-or-Treat is being hosted for local middle and elementary school students by officers and advisers of CTSOs/district sponsored clubs on October 27 in the bus parking lot from 4-6 p.m.

FIDM Fashion Club is partnering with Family Career and Community Leaders of America to create a fairy-themed trunk. They will decorate the trunk of adviser Levi Harbeson’s car with leaves, flowers, and fairy lights and members attending the event will wear fairy wings.

“I’m excited to pass out candy to little children,” junior Hermoigne Sarmiento said. “I think it’s fun. I like seeing them happy. I just like bringing a smile to their faces and stuff. Also, I’m excited about dressing up as a fairy because they’re very pretty, so hopefully, I can achieve that.”

Clubs also have the creative freedom to host different activities to entertain the attendees. Together FIDM/FCCLA will host a face painting stand, which their president Karim Abd-Elmalek will be running.

“I find face painting to be a way of self-expression and artistry,” Abd-Elmalek said. “I really enjoy challenging myself to try and do different things; I really like seeing people light up and being like ‘wow.’”

The trunk or treat will be home to a multitude of different themes ranging from superheroes to Minions.

“A lot of our board really loves [‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’],” Angelina Rodin, president-elect of NHS, said. “And so we thought it would be a really fun idea to make it our trunk concept.”

The centerpiece of NHS’ trunk will be an inflatable Sally and Jack Skellington with his dog, Zero. They will also be creating a background and incorporating lights provided by their adviser Laura Penrod.

“We want to incorporate the characters as much as possible into the trunk,” Choong said. “There is an eerie yet joyful energy around the movie, so including props from the movie itself will definitely be a part of it.”

Rodin is especially looking forward to this Trunk-or-Treat saying it reminds them of their middle school days.

“When I was in elementary school, my school used to do a trunk or treat every October and I remember looking forward to going to that event every year,” Rodin said. “So to think that our high school was going to be hosting it and we’re inviting our elementary and middle schools is really fun. I know most people don’t like kids, but I really like seeing the little ones so I’m really excited to see them in their costumes if they are wearing one, and to give them candy.”
