Rayburn Elementary hosts inaugural trunk-or-treat event

The Rayburn Elementary parking lot looked spooktacular for the first-ever trunk-or-treat event on Oct. 20.

More than 30 parents and staff members donned in their most creative costumes showed their terrorific trunk decorating skills at the community event. Youngsters disguised as superheroes, princesses and other fun characters hopped from car-to-car to get their treats.

“We wanted to create a safe environment for our parents and our kids to come and have some trick-or-treating,” Rayburn Principal Faith Molina said. “I’m all about innovative things and being progressive, so when our PTA President Ms. Aguayo mentioned the idea, I was all for it.”

The turn-out surpassed all expectations as tricked-out trunks filled one full parking lot. Next year, they plan to extend it into the second parking lot.

“We’re having a great time, the parents are loving it and saying it’s a great idea,” Molina added.

Rayburn parent Kevin Keller used to build a haunted house for Halloween, but stopped for safety reasons. When he heard about the event at Rayburn, he was excited to whip out his spooky decorations.

“The event went really well, you could tell the kids and the parents had a lot of fun, and most importantly, it was safe,” Keller said.

Rayburn Elementary looks forward to many more years of this new car-hopping tradition.
