The Rolland-Warner Middle School National Junior Honor Society, led by 8th grade math teacher Ms. Emily Campbell, hosted a Haunted Hallways event Friday to raise money for breast cancer research. Students came to school before 8 a.m. on their day off to decorate several hallways and classrooms, and themselves, as part of the first ever Haunted Hallways event.
Spectators were led through various scenes, such as The Fortune Teller’s Room, The Witch’s Room, and The Cemetery Room. In addition to the ghostly passageways, several talented middle school student artists painted Halloween scenes on children’s faces while they waited in line. The public was welcome to attend the event, and a donation of just $1 was requested. This group of highly motivated students raised $335 to donate to breast cancer research. The spectators included elementary aged children, middle school students, many parents, and even some grandparents. This was a great project that brought students, parents, and the community together to raise money for a worthy cause.
The NJHS chapter would like to thank all of the parents who provided decorations. And, they wish to extend a very special thank you to Mr. Tim and Mrs. Rachel Kirklin, who provided all of the hungry hall decorators with a delicious pizza lunch, and Mr. Tim and Mrs. Deanna Herr, who provided tons of decorations and hours of support.
