Trick or Treat with Pirate Pete at Palatine High School on October 24
Palatine High School will host its annual Trick-or Treat with Pirate Pete event on Thursday, October 24th from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m., at Palatine High School, 1111 N. Rohlwing Road. Children ages ten and under, accompanied by an adult, are invited to attend this FREE annual celebration of the fall season. Students from a variety of Palatine High School clubs, organizations, programs, and athletic teams will staff the event.
The gym and cafeteria will have a large selection of carnival type games for the children to play, including a Pirate Ship Moon Jump Slide. Speech Team and Drama Club will host a petting zoo with a snake, hedgehog, and other furry animals in the gym hallway. The transportation department will be hosting a Halloween school bus outside Exit 1. Classrooms throughout the first floor of the school will be decorated using themes. Each classroom has a sign outside letting parents know if the room is "scary" or "not scary" for the children. Treats will be handed out at the event.
Mr. Medina, Palatine High School Principal, said " My family has been attending the PHS Halloween celebration the last 4 years. Every year we have found it to be a great event that welcomes our entire community and provides our students and families with a wonderful environment to get involved in our school!"
The event is sponsored by Palatine High School staff and student groups, along with community organizations and businesses. One of the annual sponsors is the Palatine High School Pirate Boosters. The Booster Club provides an annual grant of $2,000 to subsidize the supplies and candy purchases. The American Cancer Society donated candy with an invitation to join Relay for Life and help make cancer less spooky.
