On Wed. Oct. 26, Lake Central High School will be holding their first annual event, “Ghouls at the School,” available for all students 8th grade and under. Doors open at 5 p.m and features a dance, costume contest, and a trick-or-treating event.
The trick-or-treating portion of the night will start at Door A and then continue down the hallway. Along the way, there will be a photo Halloween backdrop for parents to take pictures, outside of the library. They will continue down Hallway B and enter the gym, where there will be face painting, games, a DJ, Kona Ice, a costume contest and more.
“It is a first-year event and we are hoping for 800-1000 kids to attend. We like the idea of having the high school volunteers interact and engage with young students in a fun way. It’s a fun event that brings the students and high school community together,” Brynn Denton, Guidance Counselor, said.
Dollars for Scholars is the group responsible for this event; preparation for Ghouls at the School started in the summer. Dollars for Scholars President, Katrina Lozanoski, along with Guidance Counselors Brynn Denton and Ashley Kline, worked hard to get this event together.
“We had to find people to donate candy and different companies to have a booth. We also had to plan different games and activities for the kids,” Lozanoski said.
Aside from giving the kids a good time, Ghouls at the School serves two other purposes: to raise money for scholarships for LC students, and to show the community the new and improved Lake Central High School.
“We are always looking for news ways to raise money for scholarships for LC students. Now that we have this beautiful building, we want to be able to invite younger students and parents here to see their future school,” Brynn Denton (Guidance Counselor) said.
