This past October, Science Hill hosted their first Trunk or Treat event for the local elementary schools, and the night itself was nothing short of successful. All fourteen clubs and sports combined dressed up in their favorite


Halloween costumes with providing an experience that was incredibly memorable for the thousands of people who attended. Those who participated consisted of sports like soccer, basketball, cheerleading, dance, tennis, lacrosse, and volleyball. Clubs present were FCA, 4ThirTEEN, Medieval Battle Association, SCA, Beta Club, HOSA, and Latin American Culture Club. Kids ages 6-12 came with their families, all dressed in their favorite character or spooky creature. Each club had to collect and hand out candy, which equated to over 400 bags that were distributed total. The turnout was severely higher than expected and students were overjoyed to see a constant line out the door full of families waiting for candy and fun. Science Hill invited such a big crowd that the doors to the cafeteria were closed a bit earlier than expected, due to the lack of candy once tables began to run out. The event overall was a massive success and participants were seen laughing and excited as they approached each table, further enhancing the strong and close-knit community that Science Hill strives for while serving others.
