Legend HS Feeder Trunk or Treat

Legend High School is hosting a Trunk or Treat on October 25th. They have invited all feeder schools to participate by decorating their trunks and handing out candy – everyone is welcome to participate. PTO is looking for a family (or families) interested in decorating a vehicle to represent Gold Rush PTO – contact us if you are willing and able!
Here are the “need to knows” for this event:
1.  The event runs from 5-7pm in the lower level parking lot at Legend. Elementary schools,  feel free to arrive with your theme decorated car trunks filled with candy  at 4:15 to get set up, etc. There will be a Legend staff person ready to greet you upon arrival and point you to the correct spot.
2.   Trunk or Treat will run from 5-6, and the Safe Trick or Treat and Pumpkin Palooza will be available until 7.
3.  Legend is using this event as a kick off to their annual Canned Food Drive to benefit the Parker Task Force.  If kids bring 5 cans or more, they will receive a prize (a glow necklace to wear during the event or on Halloween)
