Last week, October 24-28, the students of Huntsville High School participated in Halloweek, a school spirit event created by Student Parliament (SPAR) to get everyone feeling festive for Halloween, and to get students to show their school spirit with a different theme every day.
Monday was the Extraordinary Tournament of Ordinary Monsters. Students chose partners and completed a series of tasks such as trying to get an Oreo from their forehead to their mouths without using their hands, and making toilet paper mummies.
Tuesday was a pie-eating contest. Here, you can see the students chewing their way toward the championship. Jacob Heinz won the contest and gained the glory of best pie eater at HHS.
On Wednesday, some of the students yee-hawed their way to school spirit for Wild West Day, and some raised the dead at Thursday’s Graveyard Gala dance. Extending the spirit of the week to the local community, students could either pay five dollars for the dance or bring in five soup cans, which were all given to our local soup kitchen. SPAR finished off the week with a haunted house on Friday.
Additionally, all throughout “Socktober” students could bring in socks to give to the Salvation Army.
Needless to say, the students of Huntsville High were really spirited this Halloween!
