Students at Kennedy High School treated children from the Reinhard Early Childhood Center to an indoor Halloween festival on Oct. 25.
Little visitors — future Cougars — traipsed the decorated halls in costume, tricked or treated, crafted and even turned the teens into mummies using toilet paper.
“This event has been very helpful in fostering growth in our school community and bringing elementary school students and families to their future high school,” said Principal Gerard Owenburg.
Fun was cooking in the C.H.A.M.P. (Culinary and Hospitality Applied Management Program) kitchen, as culinary arts students prepped cupcakes for decorating and assisted with indulgent sprinkle applications.
From monster making crafts and pumpkin decorating to carnival style games and face painting, the high schoolers were bright-eyed and bushy-tailed all afternoon, especially football player Liam Orr who dressed as a giant inflatable unicorn.
