LOCATION: Laurel Park Elementary School
What is a trunk or treat?
Trunk or Treat promotes a fun, safe environment for children and families to trick or treat. Kids can dress up in costume and trick or treat from trunk to trunk in the Laurel Park Elementary School parking lot. Parents, you provide the trunks and the treats for our trick or treaters by parking in the lot and handing out treats from your car trunk! This year we are encouraging alternatives to candy and food so that we can include all students and promote healthy living. Some “treat” ideas are pencils, erasers, stickers, tattoos, small toys, and glow sticks. We will also have games, activities, and voting for the best class pumpkin!
I would like to hand out “treats” to our trick or treaters!
We need parents to park their cars and hand out “treats” to our Trick or Treaters. This year we are encouraging alternatives to candy and food so that we can include all students and promote healthy choices. Some ideas are pencils, erasers, stickers, tattoos, small toys, and glow sticks.
Be prepared to see at least 100 kids.
Can we decorate our trunks?
Yes! Decorated trunks make everything more fun! There will also be prizes for the best decorations! However, it is not mandatory.
What if we can not participate in handing out treats from our car?
No problem! Your child may still participate in trick or treating. However, we do ask that everyone who attends bring something to share. If you are not planning on handing out a “treat”, please donate a bag or two to share with those handing out “treats”! We encourage you to bring an alternative to candy and food treats. Some ideas are pencils, erasers, stickers, tattoos, small toys, and glow sticks. We will collect this upon check in to Trunk or Treat.
How can I volunteer to help at Trunk or Treat?
We need some great volunteers to help make our event a success. Volunteers can help with a number of jobs from set up/clean up , to greeting participants. From assisting in parking to running the games. If you could help, please sign up on the link below.
What about the Teal Pumpkin Project?
In previous years, we participated in the Teal Pumpkin Project to include students with food allergies. This year, we encourage everyone to bring non-food “treats” so that all of our children can participate.
