The Friday before Halloween, Jr. High students hosted a haunted house for the elementary students.
Students were split into groups of witches, vampires, mummies and cats and assigned spirit leaders to escort them through various activities such as a favourite called the biscuit balance.
While in the haunted house, students had to crawl through a maze while people tried to scare them.
Overall these activities were very fun and everyone enjoyed them.
