Trunk or Treat Delights White Plains Elementary Students
By Alisha Ahmed
The Sci-Fi club went all out for this year's Trunk or Treat.
White Plains High School had its yearly Trunk or Treat event on Halloween. Trunk or
Treat is an event where WPHS club members and advisors decorate the trunks of their cars, inviting elementary school students to collect candy from their vehicles. This year, a variety of clubs participated and displayed their creative ideas, bringing joy to our elementary school-aged tigers.
The Mariachi Band took part in Trunk or Treat and was delighted to entertain the families that attended the event. Although the clubs were spread out, Pamela, a member of the Mariachi Band, said, “It was a very fun environment.” Others who participated in Trunk or Treat stated their delight in giving out candy and putting a smile on the kids’ faces.
The Sci-Fi Club is a place where students gather and share their love of all types of
science fiction including fantasy, gaming, graphic novels, film studies, fandoms, comic cons, anime, and so much more. For the 2022 Trunk or Treat, the Sci-Fi Club decorated two cars, one with a gum ball machine theme, and one that was decorated as a UFO car. The advisor of the club, Ms. Degraphenreed, summarized the Sci-Fi Club’s success by stating “The students in the Sci-Fi Club loved planning and preparing the themes and decorations for our cars this year. We had a UFO car with a photo booth where kids could take pictures with aliens and receive an alien lollipop,
and a gum ball machine-inspired car where the children pushed a button, and the candy was sent down a chute for them to receive. We had so much fun supporting the Class of 2023 and being a part of such a wonderful tradition!”
Global Ambassadors is a club in which students serve the community and fundraise
for organizations that assist with global challenges. Members of the club had a great time and enthusiastically participated in the Trunk or Treat event. A club officer said, “Trunk of treat was an amazing opportunity to see kids happy and a great way to get community service hours.”
Many WPHS clubs had a great time participating in this wonderful occasion.
