ENES Halloween event mobbed

  • Wednesday, November 6, 2013

Provided ENES faculty and staff provide spooky fun in the Haunted Hallway.

More than 1,000 participants attended Eagle Nest Elementary School (EES) on Oct. 23, for the PTA sponsored Trunk or Treat and Haunted Hallway event. Attendees dressed up in costume and came to the school from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Around 40 EES faculty, staff, and volunteers decorated the trunks of their vehicles and passed out candy. The decorations included sharks, spiders’ webs, big mouths, a scarecrow, and a haunted den.

The other star attraction was the Haunted Hallway. The entry way was decorated with a graveyard and witches coven. The art room was transformed into a freaky science lab. The music room became a haven for creepy clowns on tricycles. Throw in a prisoner in jail, a body in a coffin, a chainsaw wielding maniac and the results are a show with lines that stretched in front of the school and into the parking lot.

Hundreds of families were also able to enjoy an eerie ride through the back of the school on the haunted hay ride.

On the playground, PTA members sold hot dogs, chips, and drinks. Members of PTA also received a glow stick bracelets.

EES principal Dr. Tamara Diebold commented, “We were thrilled to see so many families come out to take part in the festivities at The Nest! The combined efforts of the Eagle Nest PTA, faculty, and staff made this a night to remember.”

EES PTA president Mindy Diehl added, “We are very lucky to have supportive families, faculty and staff at Eagle Nest. The event was a huge success and the PTA is already discussing improvements that can be done next year. “
