Many OHS clubs gathered in Gym B Tuesday Oct. 24 to give back to children in the community.

Students in clubs such as Student Council, National Honor Society, and Science National Honor Society prepared games and lots of candy to celebrate Halloween with the youth in attendance.

“Trick or Treat Tuesday was a lot of fun,” Social Studies teacher and NHS co-sponsor Mr. John Ries said. “I think that everyone who went to Trick or Treat Tuesday as a volunteer or to trick or treat had an amazing time. In that regard, I would consider it a success.”

OHS students prepared lots of new and fun activities for the students, but the amount of children who attended were lower than previous years. In years past, NHS printed out flyers of the event that were sent home with elementary school students in the district. However, this year the school district decided to digitally send out the flyer.

“I would like to see a better turn out from the elementary students,” said Ries. “From an advertising standpoint we plan to explore multiple different possibilities to get the word out about the event.”

Nethertheless, Ries said that the clubs prepared the best booths yet and there were plentiful games and candy.
