Student Council (STUCO) is hosting its fourth annual Easter Egg Hunt at OHS from 12 to 2 p.m. on March 18.

In the past, the event only had two age groups for hunting. Now STUCO is adding a younger age group to break down the event into three age groups: 1-3, 4-7, 8-10.

“This year I will be bringing my little girl up for the first time for her first egg hunt,” STUCO sponsor Mrs. Kelli Roberts said.

The event has been a fundraiser for STUCO in the past, charging $5 per child. Because of a high turnout from OHS Winter Formal Dance, STUCO raised enough money to make the event free to the community. Instead they will be accepting donations for St. Jude Hospital.

The event provides an opportunity for positive community engagement with high school students at the school the children might be going to one day.

“I always enjoy watching the little ones have fun at the booths and the egg hunt. They are always so full of excitement and really enjoy the little things,” STUCO sponsor Ms. Rebecca Dutcher said. “I also enjoy seeing the positive interactions between high school students and members of the community.”
