By Cameron Litwiller, OHS Torch Reporter

                The Olympia High School NHS will be hosting a Halloween event for all Olympia elementary children on Saturday, October 31 from 1-3 pm, featuring Trick or Treating, Games and Slightly Haunted Hallways to tour.  

The event will take place at the high school and is geared for pre-K through fifth grade Olympia students. 

                The carnival will be located in the High School Academic Hallways as well as the Commons area. Hallways will have special themes including Princess, Spooky, Pumpkin, and Superhero. In the Commons, games and cookies will be available.  Mad scientists also will be performing various experiments for the children.

                The children are encouraged to dress up in their favorite Halloween costumes. Parents should come with their child and join in on the fun. NHS members will also wear costumes and give out candy along the way.

                “It’s a service project and community outreach. Overall, it’s a family friendly event,” said Amanda Hapgood, OHS English Teacher and NHS Advisor, about the Halloween event.

                “I cannot wait to dress up in my superhero costume and interact with the kids,” said NHS member, Karl Fasse, on his excitement for the event.

                Over the past few weeks, the NHS members have been hard at work putting together the Halloween event. This included getting various ideas from sources such as Pinterest or Google.

                “It’s going to be exciting. We’ve come up with ideas that the kids will love,” said NHS Secretary, Carson Goff, on the preparation for the carnival.
