Treats and sweets at Halloween Rooms

By Maddie Fiorante, Staff Writer

The upper and lower rotundas were boisterous with laughter and squeals of excitement this Halloween night. Ghosts, witches, pumpkins, superheroes, and other characters paraded around decorated classrooms put together by Tigard High School clubs.

“[At Halloween rooms] kids can trick-or-treat in a safe environment,” sophomore S.T.U.D.D member Taylor Wilhoit said between greeting guests.

Each club embellished their room with a given theme. Throughout the night, the leadership superheroes dazzled children with their elaborate costumes and activities, S.T.U.D.D. impressed their audiences with Alice In Wonderland finger painting, and the thespians chanted and danced their way through a Peter Pan room. Many other clubs participating, and all were abounded with candy to give.

Junior thespian Connor Bussey commented, “It’s fun giving candy to all the kids!”

In past years there has been only one or two scary rooms for the brave to enter. This year it was put on by the creative writing club. They featured the grudge making that particular room not appropriate for all audiences.

“No way I’m going in there!” exclaimed a boy dressed as a skeleton.

Another successful Halloween Rooms at Tigard has come and gone, and the clubs are already excited to come up with even more creative and spirited themes for next year.
