Boo! We Still Need You!

We still need Haunted Hallway volunteers! Lend your time and talent to convert part of our first floor into a fiendishly fun fright-fest. We are seeking assistance with pre-Halloween set up + “scaring” + tear down. And fear not: we provide a shook-proof version for our youngest students. Click here to volunteer.
