In celebration of Halloween, the community of Anne Frank Elementary School united in one of the most creative events under the stars for the annual Trunk or Treat event.
Twelve-year-old special guest Nashville singer Taylor Gayle opened the ceremony with an original song inspiring young students to write their own music. A hundred princesses and superheroes danced enthusiastically around her, eagerly awaiting the opening of the gates to the Trunk-or-Treat lot. There, in the parking lot, hard-working teacher and parent volunteers decorated cars with themes such as Candy Land, Jurassic Park, and even a spectacular pirate ship.
The students were invited to participate in a dunking booth to dunk their Assistant Principal Kate Walker, get face and finger paintings, get goofy in a photo booth, dance, and buy food from the hard working PTA. Community partners held raffles and prizes at information booths, and contests galore took place thanks to the Special Events Committee.
Too many activities to mention, a thousand new and old students, and even neighbors joined in the fun to see how a good neighborhood school opens its doors to its surrounding community. Babies in costumes galore, the place was packed with future Anne Frank Scribes; but the night was about frolicking under the moon in anticipation of filling their bucket with treats and dancing with their teachers.
