The Spooktacular Trunk-or-Treat

The spooktacular Trunk or Treat on Oct. 30 at North Forsyth Middle School was a success. Although the rain kept the clubs from setting up outside for the regular trunk-or-treat style, the inside cafeteria was decorated with different themed booths with balloons and lights for the event. There were many clubs, sports and organizations that got to participate in the trunk-or-treat this year. The high school, middle school, and elementary schools were all invited to attend the event and set up trunks to hand out candy. Many of the community members also came out to support our school.


This year the student council who helped organize this whole event decided to give all the money raised to Bert’s Big Adventure charity. They plan to donate the money when they go to the Georgia Association of Student Councils Conference this February. Berts Big Adventure is a non-profit organization that provides children with chronic and terminal illnesses with an all paid 5 day trip to Disney. The organization has been helping sick children for 17 years. All the money will go towards giving a child their magical dream trip. 


At the trunk-or-treat held a variety of activities people could participate in, from a photo booth starring a person dressed as Jack Skellington from the movie “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and many fun games like trying to find Nemo from “Finding Nemo” on a rubber duck for a prize. There was also a booth from the Forsyth County resource officers which had a poster of an officer taking a criminal to jail. The children that came got to enjoy lots of candy, balloons and many more fun prizes. Even though the weather outside was hard to deal with, the trunk-or treat had an amazing turn out for the students despite the rainy weather.
