The Miller Place School District recently organized an opportunity for students at Miller Place High School to volunteer their time and make Halloween fun and safe for elementary school students throughout the District. More than 50 Miller Place High School students dressed in costume to give out tasty treats during the school’s annual Safe Halloween event.
As part of the program, more than 20 classrooms at Miller Place High School were transformed into haunted houses using spooky, student-designed decorations. Elementary school students from the community visited each classroom to play games, dance to live music and collect candy.
The Miller Place High School student government hosted Safe Halloween to eliminate any potential risk of children trick-or-treating at strangers’ houses, while building a stronger community with teachers, friends and families within the school district. A portion of ticket sales for Safe Halloween are to be donated ALS research.
