Trunk-or-Treat was a treat for all!

Thank you to everyone who participated in Trunk-or-Treat tonight and helped make it a success! The school grounds came alive as the night went along. In our circle of vehicles, we had a range of decorated cars, vans and trucks ….from the very scary to silly and playful. The trunk-or-treaters seemed to have a blast walking trunk to trunk with family and friends!

We had a fantastic amount of candy donated, so the PTA didn’t have to purchase any extra.  And… it lasted until the end!  Hooray!!!

Thanks for the music, the lights, the food sales, the glow sales, the trash pick up, the paper bags, the decorated cars, the candy hauling around campus, the sorting, the covering of the “dinner” tables, the costume parade, the costume awards, the faculty who came with their families, the positive feedback, and for coming!!!

We are so happy to continue this wonderful Burcham tradition.

Wishing you all a safe and very happy Halloween with your friends and family!
